Drake Plays Justin Bieber, Kanye West, Oprah and More in “Energy” Video
Drake made his Apple Music video debut with the new visual for "Energy" and let's just say, this one's a trip.
As one of the lead bangers off his February mixtape If You're Reading This It's Too Late, Drake raps about the numerous style biters and latch-ons he encounters in the music industry. For the video, Drizzy chose to CGI his face on a bunch of pop culture figures of varied stardom and infamy. We see the 6ix God's face on the bodies of Oprah, Floyd Money Mayweather, Miley Cryus, Justin Bieber, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kanye West, the Queen of England, Mayor Rob Ford, President Obama, O.J. Simpson and LeBron James. He does all this in between black and white shots of Drizzy in a cypher with his crew and flashbacks of a young Aubrey, played by a kid wearing a curly wig. It's basically a pop culture "Where's Waldo."
All of these weird and hilarious cameos from the Fleur & Manu directed clip confirm the strange casting call news first reported yesterday, making for one interesting vid that has the internet buzzing.
This vid is Drake's first major debut since making the power play to be involved with the new streaming service from Apple and conicides with his Beats Radio 1 Debut, which is tomorrow, July 11, at 6 p.m EST.
