Despite "One Dance" being one of the biggest songs of the summer, it hasn't yet got an official video. That could soon change though with news from South Africa suggesting that Drake is in the country shooting visuals for the track.

Confirmed details are sketchy right now but Drake has been posting pictures from his trip on Instagram, including one of him "talking to the yout dem in Joburg." Here's what we know so far.

Drake has been spending time in Soweto.

Okay Africa reports that while in South Africa, Drake spent time in the township of Soweto where he and director Anthony Mandler shot the "One Dance" video. Fans have been posting pictures from the set:

Kyla flew out to South Africa last weekend.

Kyla, whose vocals are sampled on the "One Dance" hook, took a flight on South African airlines on June 25.


Material Culture were on the reported shoot.

Drake put a picture of Material Culture, a dance crew who compete in the izikhothane scene in Soweto, on his Instagram overnight.

But Drake also took time to give back to the community.

While he was in the country, Drake also visited Johannesburg's Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory to speak with local students on June 27. Footage from that talk can be seen below.

The FADER has reached out to a representative for Drake for more information.
