Rapper Drake began his career as an actor on TV series Degrassi: The Next Generation and went back to his roots for the visuals of his latest single “Child’s Play.” Child’s Play is off of Drakes latest album Views from the 6 .
The video features supermodel Tyra Banks, whom Drake was rumored to have dated previously. Tyra and Drake look to be enjoying a romantic dinner together until the rapper left his phone at the table and Tyra read his text messages. Now, we KNOW this has happened to Drake many times so he didnt have to do much as far as the acting goes..
The video progresses with Tyra smashing cake in Drake’s face before exiting the restaurant and Drake begins the song with cake all over his face and wine poured over him. The lyrics coincide with the situation saying,
Why you gotta fight with me at Cheesecake
You know I love to go there
Say I’m actin’ lightskin, I can’t take you nowhere
This a place for families that drive Camrys and go to Disney
They don’t need to know all of our business
Drake then receives a call from his friend telling him to come out and go to the strip club where Drakes friend OB is introduced as the new head in charge at the strip club. The rest of the video is Drake throwing money at T.I’s new strip club V Live in Atlanta and various girls dancing and doing pole trips.
Interesting spin on a somewhat slow jam.
