Wale tells a cautionary tale in the Dre Films-directed video for his Janet Jackson-sampled single “The Girls on Drugs” off his No. 1 album The Album About Nothing. Three ladies start off at the gym before heading back to their apartment for some drinking and smoking. Their wild day leads to the club where one of them runs into Wale, who takes her back to the hotel. But he notices something is not right when she heads to the bathroom to throw up.
“What’s really wrong with you?” he asks. “What I see right now, I see a little girl, scared, sad, confused, don’t know what to do, that live for Instagram likes and H&M sales.”
She gets emotional and ends up leaving Wale alone, still in search of a real woman to take out.
Watch the drama unfold.
