Along with the release of new album Honestly, Nevermind, Drake has dropped the video for “Falling Back” with a guest appearance from Tristan Thompson.
Drake is in his polygamist bag. Following the release of new album Honestly, Nevermind, the singer-rapper dropped the video for lead single “Falling Back,” where he gets married to 23 women. Putting a ring on each bride in the music video, Drake also shares a special handshake with them.
Directed by Director X, the video also features Drake’s mother, Sandi Graham, and NBA star Tristan Thompson, who plays the rapper’s best man. Around the 1:50 mark, a slime green “Free YSL” message pops up in support of Young Thug, Gunna and other members of Young Stoner Life who have recently been indicted on RICO charges.
In comparison to Drake’s last album Certified Lover Boy, which released nine months ago, Honestly, Nevermind is less star-studded, only featuring 21 Savage on final track “Jimmy Crooks.” Producers on the album include Black Coffee, Carnage, Noah “40” Shebib, Oliver El-Khatib, Noel Cadastre and more. The album is also dedicated to Virgil Abloh, who died last November from a battle with cardiac angiosarcoma.
Following the album’s release, Drake took to Instagram stories where he shared a statement (written like a rap) about the project, with the last part of it reading: “I know everyone that tells me they love me doesn’t love me all the time especially when im [sic] doing better than alright & they have to watch it from whatever point they at in their life. I got here being realistic. I didn’t get here being blind. I know whats what and especially what and who is by my side. Honestly…Nevermind.”
