Not really aware of rap video precedents for Drake filming part of his “Headlines” from home plate in Toronto’s Rogers Centre SkyDome, but with his upcoming LP title Take Care emblazoned over purple and green on the megascreen behind him, Drake’s environment looks more like the inside of a hard drive. At times the Lamar Taylor and Hyghly Alleyne-directed video is a little confusing: Drake’s looking wealthy smoking stogies, then the camera cuts to the dude tagging OVOXO on abandoned buildings. Develop don’t destroy, Drake! Here’s hoping someone wise can verify the brand of the sweater at the dinner table two minutes in—it’s hard picking holiday gifts for granddad.
