Closed borders and COVID conditions aren't enough of a reason for DJ Khaled to not cajole Drake into makin an awesome video for their collaboration. It does, however, require him to call in a massive favor to get a suitably big Popstar to play his role in this twisty comedic video directed by Julien Christian Lutz pka Director X.
Here's a smart idea: Maroon 5 have a new version of "Girls Like You" that's essentially the same video, but with previously unused footage of all the notable "girls" who strut their stuff around Adam Levine and the guys.
A post-modern excursion where Drake is aware of trying mash-up a Taye Diggs rom-com comedy vibe with a New Orleans escapade, while also dealing with the fact that a viral challenge meme has already impacted in a way that may be more pervasive than the reach of any traditional music video in this Social Media Age.
And while you enjoy the ride, keep an eye out for some guest star appearances and an end credit compliation of some of the more epic Challenge clips.
