Video: Drake f/ Rihanna – ‘Take Care’

Rihanna and Drake

Drake drops the long-awaited video for “Take Care.” The Canadian star cozies up to Rihanna in the abstract clip directed by Yoann Lemoine.

“It had to go through a process—I shot it with a director who’s incredible and we were just very specific about it,” Drake told Capital FM. “It’s a big record and a lot of footage. It’s very artistic very abstract video—something that I wasn’t used to. I’m usually sued to a very straight forward concept so I’m really excited for people to see it because it’s actually just something beautiful to look at.”

Watch the premiere below.

    @HEY RAP-UP,
    I guess these illiterate baby factories feel so comfortable pollutining the universe with all that covetous vitriol because Rihanna never takes the time to read this effluvia much less clndescend to respond to it. But I see something must be said if only to give you wretched psycho hose beasts an important life lesson on the virtues of keeping your motherfucking mouth shut about people you don’t even know. To quote Billy Joel, ain’t no big sin in stickin two cents in if you know when to leave it alone. Iyou pop that yang if you must. Just don’t be surprised you should meet me in person when none of your friends are around, and help you discover what’s really important about life.

    @Yeah, I think its a story behind this video. I think the Bull- represent Tarus-Chris Brown and the fish Pisces Rihanna, arrows trying to stop the bull from getting in his way. Drake, Rihanna and Chris Brown.

    Rosanne Rutherford Reply:

    @Yeah, it’s unfortunate that the ladies who speak out publicly about hiphop and r&b in forums such as this have nothing constructive to contribute, only destructive vitriol that says more about its author than the intended target. And the one woman who could have, can still, singlehandedly change the hiphop/r&b/top40 game for females, uses her position to attack amd insult the competition. Maybe if she stops dressing like Homey the Clown meets Lil Kim attitudes might change; use your verse to edify, teach, something that hasn’t been done to death already.
    In general, if you ever wonder why hiphop fellows treat you so rough, it’s shit like this. Makes a dime a penny with a hole in it, listen if you got ears. Nobody wants to hear all that foul trash that’s your opinion, not fact. Get over yourself. Focus on your own flaws &correcting them, much more profitable. Remember we are always a window or a mirror…if hate is spewing from you, that means you are fullof it. Hard to attract love in that condition.

    Rihanna isn’t your problem: you are.

    @Spartenia,
    I like what the director did for that one Lana Del Rey video & I had high hopes. It’s a clean crisp look but if U look at the directors catalog you’ll see that all the elements of this video is recycled. I still LIVE 4 this song, but the visuals added nothing. They looked good I guess.

    What happened to quality videos like “Find Your Love”?? He hasn’t made a good one since and the ones for Take Care singles have been awful.

    Let’s be honest. Drake will never be someone like Kanye cuz the boy just doesn’t have any “vision”

    as Donna said earlier, the fish is rihanna (pisces) drake is the blue jay (toronto’s baseball team) and the bull is possible Breezy.. and the visuals fit the song perfectly

    Gabby Reply:

    @tune, bull = Taurus(chris brown)
    the bird= a bird from canada(drake is from canada) the fish Pisces(rihanna)
    The ice is chris brown cold heart
    the fire drake’s warm heart
    Their throwing arrows at the bull(chris Brown)
    because drake is saying he will protect rihanna or

    Bull = the harsh, tough side of romance.
    Bird = the gentle, sensitive side of romance.
    Fish = equality in love
    Ice = cold, empty, alone
    Fire = passion and the heat of love
    Dancer = mixed emotions
    Disintegration = Giving up, love lost.

    its either one of these

  50. Puma Kamarullah

    Wonderful video, it was simple but the way it was set up made the song deeper than the meaning. The bull represented the pain and frustration of a relationship. Then the bird and fish represented the healing process, that someone can take you under their wing and guide you.

    This is really worth of wait!!!

    I always say that Rihanna is to Beyoncé what Katy Perry is to Lady Gaga. They can’t compare, they are like the cheap version of the version with actual talent (Bey and Gaga). Clearly, Rihanna has lost her value, and it’s not the same. I’m tired of seeing her on every fucking song, same with Nicki Minaj -which has also lost his path-. However, I love the song, and like the video.

    [Reply]

    cass Reply:

    @Patrik, FAIL! Rihanna is up their with Beyonce…. She put out more music, and she is REAL.. Someone we all can relate to. She not no statue with no feeling, like Bey is most of the time. Beyonce may be a better SINGER but she aint that much better than Rihanna. Yall forget Bey started her career at a younger age and was already in the music biz. In a couple of years, RiRi will top Bey. I am a stan for both Bey, RiRi and GaGa. Let’s be real, GaGa has put out one flawless album while Bey and RiRi have quite a few… GaGa aint even worthy to crawl out of Bey’s and RiRi’s ass. Katy Perry aint even worthy to be put in the same sentence.

    [Reply]

    cass Reply:

    @Patrik, FAIL! Bey is a great artist but she isn’t that much better than Rihanna. She is a better SINGER but that’s pretty much it. GaGa is mot even worthy enough to crawl out of Bey’s and RiRi’s a$$. Rihanna is doing her thing and it won’t be long before she tops Bey. I love GaGa and she supports the gays but she hasn’t really done anything. One great album that was flawless while Bey and RiRi have a couple. Katy Perry shouldn’t even been mentioned. This is coming from a Bey STAN.

    I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHY EVERYONE IS ON BEYONCES DICK?? yeah shes talented duh! no need to throw a hissy fit about it but her and rihanna sound nothing alike their both queens in their own aspect, now before comparing lets think about how long beyonces been in the game? hm WAY longer then rihanna,and although rihanna hasn’t been out as long as bey well shes already accomplished alot for herself so when shes beyonces age and still selling records then talk your shit and COMPARE them but comparing them two just makes you look dumb ass hell quit wasting your time noone cares, at the end of the day we all have our opinions so please do everyone a favor and keep arguing about “celebrities you don’t even know” lol because your stupidity is my entertainment…oh and this song is my favorite from her album,<3 that is all!
