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:
It appears that Apple Music may be involved.
Apple's head of original music content Larry Jackson was also in Soweto.
SOWETO. 🔥⚠️🔥 The most spirited yet dangerous community that I have ever come across. Every bit of cool that every other place pretends to possess, you exude here with genuine ease. Forty years almost to the day of the Soweto youth uprising, which was the catalyst for the eventual dismantling of apartheid, I am so proud that @amandler and I chose to come to this amazing township to film what easily is the most powerful piece of visual art that I have ever captured — but now with the youth of Soweto today. Thank you for restoring my spirit, faith and inspiration today. WOW. ✊🏾🇿🇦✊🏾
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.
