Bounce that shit like woah. Drake pulls out all the stops in the cinematic video for “Child’s Play,” the latest release off his chart-topping album Views.
The 12-minute clip, co-directed by Drake and Spiff TV, features Tyra Banks, who plays his girlfriend. The couple is eating at Cheesecake Factory (of course) in the opening scene. When Drake goes to the bathroom, she grabs his phone and checks his texts. When she discovers that he’s been cheating on her, she wilds out at the restaurant.
“I am tired of you, Aubrey,” she says while loudly clapping her hands.
In a dramatic showing, she then shoves a fistful of cheesecake into his face and dumps a glass of wine on him. “Cheers, boo,” she says before getting up and storming out.
The clip then cuts to famed strip club V Live in Houston where Drake affiliate OB O’Brien aka the Texas Hammer Jr. plays the club manager. “It’s Hammer time,” he tells the strippers, with names like Infectious, Honey, Coco, Merlot, and Champagne.
Then the ladies go to work, showing off their impressive skills on the pole as money rains down onto the floor.
Spiff TV recently spoke to Billboard about the visual. “The ‘Childs Play’ video is gonna be epic,” he said. “Drake had the vision and it’s gonna be special. Like the way Michael Jackson used to shoot his videos. Together, we killed the shit. You’ll be surprised to see the cameo and the lead roles.”
Next up, Drake plans to debut his short film Please Forgive Me on Sept. 30. That clip was directed by Drake and Anthony Mandler and features a score by Noah “40” Shebib.
