Drake gives video teaser of Take Care clip featuring Rihanna
Following their collaboration for Rihanna's single What's My Name, Drake and the Bajan songstress teamed up once again for Drake's clip "Take Care", which was set to premiere two weeks now. But on yesterday, April 5th Drake revealed a sneak peek of the upcoming video for fans' pleasure, while the video comes in full today, Friday April 6. The black-and-white vid shows the Canadian singer rapping his lines to the camera before offering glimpses of a lonesome Riri and a snow-covered landscape. Although we don't see Drake and Ririh together in the sneak peek, the director Yoann Lemoine explains: "It pays tribute to nature," the director told MTV News. "When I listened to the track, I was seeing a landscape ... involving animals and massive landscapes." He added, "It's not narrative at all, it involves animals."
Aside from the newly-released trailer, there's a sneak peek in a form of stills that feature Drizzy and Riri sharing a loving embrace. He dresses casually in a t-shirt, while she shows off some skin in a long-sleeved sweater which unzips on the back. They seemed to be super close and that's what I wanted for the video. Visually, it's a very humble video," Lemoine said. "It's not crazy. It's actually the most indie video I've done my whole life. It's probably the most famous artists, and they were so open to a project that was so minimal."
The video in support of the title track from the Young Money star's sophomore effort Take Care was delayed by weeks. Drake motivated his delayed video debut as he wanted to "make it perfect, like, the best video I've done to date, so just taking my time." Watch the short teaser below.
