BuckeyeTone said...

I like it! No-Homo, but by the faces and shit you can tell he's into the lyrics and believes all he is saying and anyone who doesn't know Drake and saw the video would know it's his original work. As opposed to Diddy these days, dancing around in the videos or being overly-confident, you can tell he didn't pen a word in the verse. Ex: Oh Let's Do It (Remix)

Keep doing you Drake cuz it certainly ain't wrong, Kill These Muhfucka's!

YEEEEESSSSSSSS, I LIKE

Someone tried telling my friend & I that Kid Cudi was better than Drake. We won that debate of course, cause there is no competing with Drake. Every word. Every line. In every one of his own songs. This video is just another testament to the kind of artist Drake is and why we love him so much. Keep up the great work!

incredible

so unlike everything else

Chantal said...

"and the visual is stunning"...

This video is amazing in so many ways, maan. I love everything about it from the projection of images when Drake's in the all white room, to the part where you see the battle betweeen him staying where he is (being involved with music) and going after love (Rita Ora as his love interest in the video). Amazing concept; symbolism is crazy...

Shout out to Anthony Mandler for getting Drake's point across in such a powerful way!

June Fifteenth!

Slik_yayo said...

I was overly impressed with the video. I felt the same way about the video when I heard the song for the first time, AMAZING & ORIGINAL.

Looking forward to Thank Me Later [please try not to push the album anymore]

LNT said...

Wow. That was amazing

Brittney said...

Imma be real, biggest drake fan here (who isnt)

I get the video.. i get the song. Sitting in the hotel room thinking about his placement and where hes at and reminding himself of what hes doing.. But i really wasn't feeling it that much. Too dramatic from drizzy and almost felt awkward watching him. Also i didn't get what the women represented. (Past relationships?) The visuals were a lot to take in too.. epilepsy?

If i were to make a suggestion for this vid or next (like it matters) id think the shots of drake rapping with visuals were cool, but singing the hook on that bed didn't feel like it matched >.< Maybe him walking/talking the hook around through visuals of his experiences. I do commend this vid for being something different however and will continue to support ! June 15 th!

Drake you are talented but the video missed the mark! I know you said we should be open and expect the unexpected, but what were your expectations of us? Can you just produce a video that translates as well as your lyrics.

Drake your music has reached me I am a city of Comodoro Rivadavia in Patagonia Argentina so if a word is not well written apology q do the best I can, you are great and I love your music you are a diamond in the rough unpolished happened to me listening to your songs almost every time the best I've heard so far are extremely fantastic I love you!

MrsTTG said...

Quoted on NecoleBitchie, Drake to MTV, "The song is so aggressive, and it’s sort of a love story in the video. It has a lot to do with the album [Thank Me Later]. The album is about finding love, feeling ‘Have I sold my soul’ as far as ‘Will I ever be able to gain the trust of a woman? Will I only be able to be around the dark, evil women? Will I ever find that pure love?"

I loved the interpretation, the images of horrible things looming over your shoulder, ever present, calling you away from what you love. It's the classic struggle between Good & Evil. The fact that you care to win the struggle will keep you well above water. Nicely Done.

Keep doing your thing drake, you're the best in the game!
we'll keep supportin you till its over, but it's far from over ;)

great video, keep doing you drizzy - this kid's gonna be a legend.

Starsky said...

I have to say the song is gr8 it grew on me. It's a self motivation song which i love hearing BUT the video could of been so much better with shots of past experiences, walkin down a hall or lookin into a mirror with images shining thru or at least some scenery shots would of brought the vid 2 life. 1up Drizzy

Moose said...

great video drizzy. sick video; you convey your emotions very well in it.

i feel like i can relate to you in a way that i can't with other rappers. maybe it has something to do with backround and upbringing, but i think a lot of it has to do with how you aren't afraid to talk about your inner feelings a lot, and maybe i share those feelings, and i convey my own emotions vicariously through your lyrics.

But whatever it is, i'm a young dude (14) from boston, MA, and i definitely see you as a role model. i respect you for your honesty in your songs, with the ability to keep it classy. you are definitely an inspiration to me. i haven't picked up a mic yet, haven't even tried to rap, but when i might end up getting around to it, you'll be the inspiration, because i can relate to you better than any other rapper.

I know that you will probably never ready this, but i want you to have the chance to hear about the kind of respect and love that you have from your fans, even the younger ones, like me. but keep your ish awesome and admirable, and i know that you'll take the game to the next level.

Austin Watts said...

This is why i have been hooked on your music since i heard Room For Improvement. I think it's one of your top 2 videos,maybe Successful was a bit better but nevertheless i still love this video.It bothers me how some people say your "0 for 2" , maybe they dont feel the message like i do.Every video you make you are still the same person, your not a flashy guy saying yeah im better than you. You are Drake.. the humble guy who we fell inlove with.So genuine. Rap, scratch that music needs you to stay around for years to come.... i can tell you one thing it will be a while before your "over" :)
congrats Drake

Anonymous said...

This is not a conspiracy theory.

This video has some serious symbolism. It's documenting Drake's initial flirtations with the dark side, with evil, the devil, and the trappings of the entertainment industry.

The scenes with Drake sitting in the room with the ominous, apocalyptic images all over the walls symbolize the collosal inner struggle, spiritual struggle, occuring within Drake's mind/soul. He is sitting still and contemplating while disturbing images are playing all around him, often images of fire. If you notice, once the video begins, the sihouette of his body flashes and turns to fire, symbolizing the beginning of his birth as medium or muse for evil. This is the beginning of a "rebirth".

At the two minute mark, when the 2nd verse begins, we see Drake dressed in darker clothing, looking more sinister, while some evil looking chick gyrates in the background. The background is darker, and we also see concrete cracking and fire emerging on the screen immersed with his face rapping in the background.

At the same time, we see the Rita Ora character, who looks innocent and cute, observing Drake while he's singing "What am I doing? What am I doing?". He is questioning whether his decision to turn himself over to evil, and thus abandoning his innocent love with the Rita Ora character, is legitimate. We see him wincing and looking remorseful in the scenes with Rita Ora. The scenes spliced with the seemingly evil girl dancing
are sequenced with him saying "Way too many people here right now that I didn't know last year, who the F are ya'll?

At 3:31, recognizing that Drake is lost to evil, the girl kisses him goodbye. 3:41 shows Drake's body/silhouette being split into two, his new self is literally being ruptured and born from his old one.

Sinister but brilliant. So subtle. You'd think it was a boring ass video otherwise.

"it's just what comes with the fame and I'm ready for that". Hope you are bro.

Images are not an accident, they're carefully chosen.

Mandler did it again.

Expect Drake's videos to get darker as his career progresses.

Coco said...

love Drake. love the video for it's visuals. unfortunately, i didn’t think this was the right concept for him as an artist. i was interested in what would happened next but not because of Drake’s performance and as a fan that's what i'm most concerned with first.

i think the concept went against his natural vibe. and if that is his natural vibe, i don't think the director did him justice. the visuals were amazing yes but i didn’t buy him as brooding and intense.

i think there are artists whose natural performance level can match the concept, i just don’t think Drake is one of them. in my opinion, the visuals overpowered the video. at the very least, i think the artist's performance should meet or exceed that. i think Anthony Mandler failed him in that respect.

that being said, Drake’s a star so it’s definitely not going to hurt him. i just hope at some point there will be a director that can bring his essence or that star quality that is so undeniable in his music and deliver a video that is not just successful artistically but also for Drake as an artist.

@richard are you apart of wealthy citizens i heard of wealthy citizens they music goes hard im from atl and i was at a showcase listening to a a singer her name was natalie smith and she reps that

Coco said...

and before anybody gets all snippy and thinks i'm hatin'. i am a huge fan. i love his music. i think he's incredibly talent. one of the things i like about him most is that he's in his own lane. he's his own brand.

to me, the video came across as this idea the director had been wanting to do and then inserted Drake not a video that was tailored to him.

that's just my opinion.

Richard said...

yeah im richie rich from wealthy citizens,, and yeah natalee is a rnb singer shes out in NY rite now

make sure ya check out wealthycitizen.blogspot.com

drake supports wealthy citizens

and i support drake

so make sure yaw do the same

we live at eccos

for drakes listenin party

Coco said...

@Richard i agree. i think it was just too subdued. when i first heard the song, i imagined him in a sea of faceless people...yes abstract i know but...that's what i saw. i thought it would be clever to play with film speed, maybe everyone around him moving very quickly and him in slow motion.

i also like the idea of making it an adventure, maybe him trying to figure out how this all happened. starting from the end and going back with visuals that punctuate the lyrics.

i'm not jockeying to direct his next video or anything. i'm a writer. i just think the main goal should be to showcase the artist and then the visual medium should be a very close second. that's why we as fans can appreciate a simple understated video as well as an artistic one.

in any event, like i said, i'm a fan and his music is strong enough for his videos to not really matter but if he's gonna pay all that money, he should at least get what he's paying for.

thanks though Richard...i'm glad not to be vilified for having a different opinion.

Anonymous said...

The visuals were amazing, awesome concept...Congrads Drake!

J.D.S. said...

If I was you I'd have my first video directed by the fans. I'd have made a website to showcase all of them. I think we're moving in that direction as a society.

Nowadays, anyone with a HD still camera and a laptop can make a video that competes with all the top video directors work.

madeformakeup said...

I wonder what the concept for the vid is because i though it was very good, i wonder if it has anything do with projecting what his thinking is mind, the vid seems to follow that theme. Very nice and wow no naked chicks what is going on!

Seen a comment about him being moody but thats part of the mood of the song think about the lyrics parapharsing knowing to many people he didn't know last year and asks who they f are they its not a happy subject and begs the question of why do you want to know him is it because i have hype, is it because he possibly has more influence now.

Goes on to remind him self that its really not about other people but about himself. I wonder what the girl is for because there is nothing that leads to having a girl in the vid or could it be about groupies however she doesn't really interact with Drake???

Anonymous said...

Mr Aubrey Drake Graham,
You don't disappoint do you?
This video is going to be interpreted in so many ways through so many different peoples eyes, but what can't be debated is the way you display your emotions; something you have always done with amazing precision. Your face looks emotional, I personally think you look distressed at some points, because your clearly feeling strain and confusion. The images display the strain and confusion in a way your words may not of been initially received. You are a very clever and aware young man.
Fans from the beginning, critics from lift off. Don't let the latter determine your next move.
Stay grounded, and be careful! Remember who you are, after all this is only the type of success you suppose you want. Don't lose sight and don't be manipulated. I'm sure it's a lot easier said than done but I definetley will pray for you!
Never fail to remember...
We love you xx

Darn, Im late. :/ But anyways, I like it! Im not luvin it, but its good. The one thing I do luv, though, are your expressions. Like we can see the pain in your face when you say "I just dont remember at all", but we can also see you staring to believe in yourself when you say "oh yeah, thats right." Its definitely not your average video...

I also agree w/ J.D.S, couldnt have said it better. :D

Anonymous said...

I think the video is garbage, just like the best I ever had video. I think drake can't make good videos because he never talks about anything real. Anybody who is a true fan of hip - hop and knows its history would not appreciate this video or song. AS the first single it wasn't worth the anticipation so unoriginal the whole young money camp sounds the same. People give credit where it's due and please say that drake is anything but original!

Shayla said...

Okay, so I love Drake and I love what he does. I don't know that everybody understands the song and the video, but I think that's the point. We see him and we can see us...we can relate, its art, illustration, his interpretation, in his words...

So Mr. Lyrical, you do you, Ima do me, and we all do us...

I think it's crazy that in the same year (2009) I lost the most amazing entertainer I've ever known (MJ) only to find that here comes this guy named Drake…

The video was superb and it launches you into the stratosphere of Mega-Ism! Above all of the average, everyday, you’ve seen it, heard it before entertainers.

It’s definitely out of the box thinking and people can NEVER, EVER misconstrue your style with the typical stereotype video or basic rapper! You know, maybe someday it will be discussed in classrooms, debates or conferences(who knows the future)!
Before I close, let me add that Drake is looking very handsome in the video and please continue to strive for excellence!

For all the Drake haters "Simple minded people shall never go beyond the primitive"

Let the paupers fight over your crumbs, you were born to WIN!!!!

BRE said...

I'll admit The song grew on me, I mean its still not the song I expected or really wanted to hear but as a standard rap song its grown on me to the point that I find myself saying "Who the fuck are ya'll" "Bout Set it off set it off..Jada Pinkett" "Everything is kosher two thumbs up Ebert and Roper" lol but the video is dark and moody I like that,I like the images, there's something deep about this video the fact that he's saying "I know way too many people that I didn't know last year.Who the fuck are ya'll" except he's alone in a hotel room , he's doing him despite all of the people around him and I think thats why its just him in the video.. I think its symbolic of him and his life now: that things haven't changed despite everything happening around him and in the background images thats all it is, background to his life not who he is.

Anonymous said...

Okay as a sincere fan, I feel obligated to address these little feeble-minded haters here. All your negative, nonsense, witty comments are personally pissing me off & I believe all the fellow fans as well, so here we go.

First off don't come to diss & talk crap about Drake being that YOU guys are the ones going out of YOUR way to hopp on the internet, coming onto DRAKE'S blog, watching DRAKE'S new video, then having the audacity to give NEGATIVE feedback on it. Seriously how old are we? If you disliked him so bad, you wouldn't even be on this. Last time I checked nobody said you had to come see, nobody said you had to agree & approve with whatever Drake decides to do, nobody said they needed your commentary, he doesn't need to be validated.
Secondly Drake's not going to fit into your perfect mold & you need to get over that! He'll rap & talk about whatever the hell he wants too whether or not you like. Out of all these cats today, Drake is the most humble, realist, down to earth, positive rapper. He isn't harming anybody, he's just a dude with something to say, let him say it. His style you can't compare with, his flow, his diversity, his lyrics & rhymes, his ideas & opinions, all that you can't touch. He's his OWN category. Unlike all these other superficial rappers, Drake's giving good name & rep to hip-hop, he's putting it to shine. He's putting the game in FIRST place, not the money, not the huge success. He's taking what's left of it, carrying it on his shoulders & trying to bring it back & it reflects in his music. He's doing HIM, who the f*** are ya!? In this game nobody just starts off with a BAM! It takes a while to get the hang of it & move up to that level, give him time, give him a break. Rappers that usually start off with a BAM like what all you are expecting, are the ones that usually go ghost within a year so sorry to break it to you but that's not Drake. With that said, let that marinate & sink in so you can use it for the next time you even DARE to come out of your faces & look stupid.

to the person that asked him if he can make videos that corresponded with his lyrics...if he were to do that he would be just like every other artist out there. he is trying to switch some shit up and not come out with the same old same old that's been coming out since the beginning of time. that's just my view of it. not bashing you btw lol.

tee said...

Honestly, I have been a fan of this shit from the very beginning. I have never seen someone come into the game and take over the way Drizzy is doing right now. I cant even explaint it, this man has definately raised the bar lyrically for the rap scene. There are very few artists out right now -scratch that- ever, who are so genuine and able to draw you in the way he does. Its like you when you have that favourite line in a song that constantly gets stuck in your head, This man will have you feeling that way about every line in the whole dang song!! I dunno man, I just had to put it out there and let it be known.. Good muthafucken job DriZzY!!

pure magic. this is perfection. visually stunning. incomparable.

Stef said...

The visuals are gorgeous, don't get me wrong, but Drake, to me, is more about feelings and emotions displayed through simplicity. I still think Successful, and a little bit of Still Fly are much more emotional and relatable to Drake's real fans.

Is it a video for Shut It Down, Teague? I really want Driz to make a full song out of Put It Down w/ Bun B. I enjoy the one minute it is:] Driz & I think his road manager went live on ustream. I wanted to watch, but my iPod doesnt have flash player.

noelle said...

Drake, why don't you use black girls in your videos :P?

noelle said...

I don't think sdo starr:]. I watched that UStream thing this morning..like 3 or 4 minutes of it..then I watched Rick Ross's dude sniff coke HAHAHAHA :D

I hope its Shut It Down, Dream usually has good videos...I think I might watch it later. Haha, Rick Ross is a G.

Nteague1 said...

OOOo..no starr:], the video is for his next single..which I have already forgotten the name..you can find the title on Drake Daily

Nteague1 said...

But, since production is moving so fast starr:], I think Drake will pull a B'Day and do a D'Day and release a video for everything. What do you think?

starr:] said...

LOL, I hope not! That was too much Beyonce for one year...Let me check "Drake Daily".

starr:] said...

Oooh, Find Your Love. I havnt heard it, Im about to get on it! Does it sound like Fall For Your Type?

Nteague1 said...

Girl Idk, I haven't here it yet. Plus, I know security is deadbolting the locks on that cd, you will probably not get a leak until ..next weekLOL

Drake I have to say the videos are not your strongest suit; I had a totally different idea for that song's video. But I do love your music so keep doing your thing, the music speaks for itself.

damn... people are such liars. don't boost artists with what you think they want to hear. the video was ok; it served it's purpose. but let's face it, it's not incredible. i don't think drake would say, 'yeah, it's just what i envisioned- it was amazing.' sure, he KEEPS spitting fire, and the videos won't change that, but saying this is his best he can do is selling him short. i'm crossing my fingers for the next one...

I am so proud of you bloody Canadians. Good for all of you. So deserving of it all. I love that Drake isn't a cocky bastard like most of the people in the business. Don't ever change. I really love everything I've heard. That is real talent. I've been a fan since Jimmy. Something different about Drake.
