Drake Says “Over” Video Takes The Song To Another Place x Producer Speaks On “Shut It Down”

According to Drake, his video for “Over” should be out very soon and the clip shows a choice he had to make in real life.

“It captures … it takes the song to another place,” he told MTV News in Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania, during the opening night of his Away From Home Tour. “It offers up a whole different look for the song. The song — to a lot of people — is ignorant, it’s club. This video is what I was really thinking about. The song is like a bad dream — but it’s not a bad dream, it’s not a terrible dream. It’s a little evil. The video really reflects that. It’s a struggle between the purities of my past life and what this new life has to offer. Even in the video, you see me looking back and forth between the two and deciding. At the end of the video I don’t necessarily make a decision, but when you get the album, you’ll see what choice I make.”

Over” is early in the Thank Me Later track list, and is part of a story that’s told through the album.

“Initially it was a warm-up record,” he added of ‘Over‘. “I love the song. I love the message in the song. It’s funny, because ‘Over‘ is the fourth song on the album and it’s the turning point in the album. It’s like, you get three songs of me sort of trying to paint the picture of what the last year has been like for me — trying to fill you in, almost let you into my world as much as I can. ‘Over‘ is that moment where you’re almost worried on the album. ‘Is this kid about to … ? What’s happening? Is he changing?’ I wanted that to come out first. I wanted people to be a little nervous. This whole journey could have changed me drastically. Fortunately I’m able to step out of my shoes and reflect on it and give you some great music. ‘Over‘ is a great alter-ego moment. It’s the dark side of things and I really wanted that to come out first.”

Via MTV, and hit the jump to read what the producer of “Shut It Down“, Omen says about the song:

Drake Readies Prince-Like First Single Shut It Down With The-Dream

So we have the news on Drake’s upcoming first single which will be called “Shut It Down” and will feature vocals by The-Dream. No, Dream and Tricky are not behind the production of the song though. It belongs to Harlem based producer Omen.

The idea for the track, which Omen describes as a “Prince-like, powerful song,” is about “empowering females. Drake said he had a song idea called “Shut It Down” aimed at club-going females.

When they go out and they get dressed up and put their makeup on and get their hair done, they have the capacity to shut the club down,” says Omen.

The video will be directed by Hype Williams. Drake’s debut album Thank Me Later is currently scheduled for a February 2010 release.
