Drake Releases His Please Forgive Me Film Starring Himself, Popcaan, Kyla, Fanny Neguesha & More

Drake has released his “Please Forgive Me” film five days earlier than he first announced via Apple Music. The 23-minute short movie, which was inspired by The Bourne Identity and Taken, was filmed in Johannesburg, South Africa back in July.

In the Anthony Mandler-directed visual, there are appearances from Popcaan, Kyla Reid, Fanny Neguesha, and others. Noah “40” Shebib also scored the film, so of course there are plenty of Drizzy songs from his Views album throughout it, such as “One Dance“, “Controlla“, “Pop Style“, “Hype“, and more.

Behind The Scenes For Drake’s “Fancy” Music Video (Feat T.I. & Swizz Beatz)

“It’s a dedication to the ladies who take pride in being the flyest and finest that there are out there to be noticed,” T.I. told MTV News on the set of the sleek clip, which reflects the song’s sultry vibe. The video features Drizzy, Tip and Swizz in all-black everything, spitting suave lyrics and flanked by leggy dancers in formfitting bodysuits.

In his cool Atlanta drawl, T.I. chatted about participating in the collabo and sang the praises of Drake and Swizzy. “I was offered the opportunity and given the pleasure to be a part of this monstrosity of a record by young Drizzy and my big homie O.G., player, partner Swizz Bizzy,” Tip said. “I’m honored, privileged and absolutely pleased to be a part of this extravaganza that you are witnessing before you here today.”

Anthony Mandler, who has helmed all the clips from Drizzy‘s Thank Me Later, said the singer/MC’s approach to his work influences how the director develops the accompanying visuals. “For me, there’s a lot of pressure, because I feel like he’s creating music from a place that’s so pure and so unique and so original that it pushes me to try to create imagery that stands in the same zone,” Mandler said.

Drake also lavished Mandler with respect and said his work with the director has changed his perspective when it comes to making videos. “As far as me evolving as a visual artist, I started in a place where visuals weren’t my strongest aspect. Me and Anthony shot ‘Over’ together, and for the first time, I really felt like, ‘This is how I’m supposed to look,’ ” Drake said. “From there, it’s sorta been like an inseparable bond.”

Picture Of Young Money On The Set Of Miss Me Video Shoot

Yesterday, Drake shot the music video for his “Miss Me” single featuring Lil Wayne (who shot his parts before he went to jail). Most of the Young Money crew made cameos, and the video was directed by Anthony Mandler and shot in Atlanta. Drizzy is shooting the music video for “Fancy” featuring Swizz Beatz and T.I. today too, so I wonder if both videos will come together as one ❓
