Wale Delivers a Strong Message in “The Girls on Drugs” Video
Wale dropped the visual to "The Girls on Drugs" off his recent The Album About Nothing LP.
The D.C. native is known for dropping some of the most thought-provoking tracks and "The Girls on Drugs" is no different. In the Dre Films-directed visual, the camera follows a group of beautiful ladies as they struggle with drug use and insecurities. In the beginning of the video they come across as the most confident group of friends, enjoying a work out before taking the party back home. Once the ladies get back to the crib, they take a few shots, spark up, and take several pictures for the 'gram.
Once the substances kick in, the ladies start feeling a little insecure about their bodies, asking one another if they should go bigger and stare at themselves in the mirror. Things get even more trippy when the video's lead pop's one and starts floating off her bed. She's later seen in the club with Wale, who tries to give her a pep talk about her choices before she storms off. The video ends with one of the girls lying on a medical table as surgeons prepare her breast implants. Check out the moving visual above.
The Album About Nothing debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, becoming Wale's second No. 1 record, following The Gifted.
