Drake fans had a reason to stay up late in the evening. The Toronto-born rapper released the official music video for his latest song, “Laugh Now Cry Later,” featuring Lil Durk.
Drizzy pointed at the decline on Wednesday night when he shared a short video of himself riding a lime-green jet ski. Although there was no music in the clip, high-quality filming led many to believe that it was part of a visual for a new Drake album. Luckily, the ideas were right for the fans.
A variety of celebrity athletes including Kevin Durant, Marshawn Lynch, and Odell Beckham Jr. feature cameos in the star-studded visuals. The video directed by Dave Meyers was filmed at the Nike World Headquarters in Oregon. Earlier this month, it was confirmed that Drizzy ‘s private aircraft had been sighted at Portland International Airport. Druski2Funny and Aggy Abby are in the music video as well.
Cardo, G. Ry, Rogét Chahayed, and Yung Exclusive manufactured the music.
“Laugh Now Cry Later” follows a number of collaborations with Drake in 2020, including “Popstar” and “Greece” with DJ Khaled, “Everything I Need” and “Twist & Switch” with Popcaan, and “Life Is Fine” with Future. The single also comes as Drake prepares to release a follow-up to his 2018 studio album Scorpion.
When Drake dropped the video for “Laugh Now Cry Later,” he also revealed the title of his next album, “Certified Lover Boy.”
“I ‘m working on the record, I’ve been working on it for a while now,” Drake said with the COVID-19 lockdowns to Billboard. “The last time I had to sit down, I remember, was when I tore my ACL (in 2009). And out of that, I did a wonderful record. Obviously God right now has us all inside the building. It ‘s certainly the one I’ve been most excited about an album in a long time.
When Drake’s next album is set to go down, there is still no news on; however, the latest single indicates it’s just around the corner.
