Drake announced the project last month, and the film is just over 21 minutes long, following in the steps of his previous short film, Jungle, which accompanied his 201? album, If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late. His latest short film is directed by Anthony Mandler, who has previously worked with Drake on the videos “Fancy,” “Find Your Love,” and “Over,” and features music from the Views album. The score was produced by Drizzy’s longtime friend and collaborator Noah “40” Shebib. Popcaan also plays a supporting role in the film, which is often funny, as it offers some Indecent Proposal vibes when Drake tells his girl to sleep with a stranger for $1 million.
Basically, the short film weaves together narratives Drake pulled from his Views album—relationship ups and and downs and lots of braggadocio. In the film, Drake travels through the desert for “One Dance” and “Controlla” and eventually a gun fight ensues, along with lots of explosions.
