Drake is a helluva impersonator. In his latest video ‘Energy’, the Canadian proves that he has both a sense of humor and some acting skills.
In the video — released exclusively on Apple Music — Drake channels a number of celebrities including: President Obama, Miley Cyrus, Lebron James, Floyd Mayweather, Oprah Winfrey, OJ Simpson, Justin Bieber and a few others.
The black and white video was directed by Fleur and Manu. In an interview with Zane Lowe, Drake shared the concept behind the video,
I was like, ‘Man, you know, effects have come such a long way. I bet we could do something crazy with this.’ And how many people in the world feel like they have enemies? Everywhere you go, there’s always someone who wants to pull you down and even celerity friends of mine or people that I don’t know. I want people to rewind it a bunch of times and go and tell someone else to watch it. It’s shocking, it’s beautiful, it’s a lot of things.
