Video of the Week

Drake - Over


“I’ve shot a lot of videos before, but this is my first attempt to establish myself as Drake the artist. Shooting the other videos I’ve done has been great. I really don’t care what other people think about them, they were great experiences for me. I’ve learned a lot from them. Today, I’m shooting with somebody I really look up to and respect. I’m shooting with Anthony Mandler.”

“The song is so aggressive, and it’s sort of a love story in the video. It has a lot to do with the album [Thank Me Later]. The album is about finding love, feeling ‘Have I sold my soul’ as far as ‘Will I ever be able to gain the trust of a woman? Will I only be able to be around the dark, evil women? Will I ever find that pure love?’ Those elements are in the video.

The song “Over” touches on Drake reaction to fame and stardom. I wanted people to understand I could have lost it. ‘Over’ could have been my entire album. Just ’cause that’s what this industry and game will do to you if you lose yourself.”


P.S. I can just feel Drake's aggressiveness in this video. Kudos to you Drake !

  1. With hopes that someone reads this...
    I love you guys' attempt at blogging & being so consistent with the posts however, if you are truly seeking some sort of future or comeup by blogging; maybe you should not simply copy and paste texts and pictures from other websites... My suggestion is if you do then give them credit, otherwise you will remain an amateur blog. I don't really wanna see the same exact words on here that I see on NecoleBitchie or any other notable blogging sites. If you are really serious about this blog, you would take my advice into consideration & not look at it as if I am hatin cause that's not it in the least.
    Perhaps, add a link to the other sites you have gotten it from as a source so it wouldn't seem like you are passing it off as your own. Because as of right now, you are not bloggers, just copy & paste experts.
