Drake’s highly anticipated short film that loosely accompanies his last album Views has arrived. The rapper released the film, titled Please Forgive Me, via Apple Music early Monday morning. Anthony Mandler (Rihanna, Beyonce) co-directed the short film.
Drake’s album Views was a substantial breakthrough for the rapper. Released in April, the record held the Number One spot on the Billboard 200 for 12 consecutive weeks on the strength of five hit singles. “One Dance” became Drake’s first Number One single as lead artist. Coming five months after the album, Please Forgive Me is likely to reinvigorate sales of Views, which has sold more than 1.4 million copies in the U.S.
Drake’s last foray into film was in 2015 with Jungle, the 14-minute clip that found the rapper pondering the price of fame and the point of life. Jungle was intended as a preview of his fourth mixtape If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late.
