Last night I happened upon Drake's 'Best I Ever Had' video, and I'm really interested to know what you all have to say about it! The video was directed by Kanye West and the song has spent ten weeks on the Billboard Top 100 list and is currently at number 2. Needless to say it's getting a lot of play, but do you think this much sex(ism) really sells?
As I was watching this video last night, I realized I had seen it before, and that the first time I was so fed up when Drake instructs the girls to 'Take that D' that I turned off the television and went to bed. Drake spoke on Def Pen Radio recently and explained the meaning behind the video. 'The moral of the story, I guess, is win or lose, you can still be the best to somebody,' Drake said. 'When women see the video and see all the breast and ass, hopefully they don't take offense. Hopefully they see the real meaning.' And yet, the irony is, Drake tells every girl in the video that 'she's the fucking best!' but they all lose the game in the end. I'm glad he can sleep at night knowing he took the moral high road. ~Hannah
