Drake “Best I Ever Had” (Director’s Cut Video)

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I know this is kinda late, but I wanted to post and I was kinda on the ‘break’ so it had to wait. But as hyped as this song was.. WOW @ the video! It’s got a different theme, and Kanye did his thing.. but somehow it seemed like sabotage since the video for Kid Cudi’s “Make Em Say” dropped around the same time and looks fly as hell..

“That career move was very important to me,” he explained at the America’s Most Wanted Music Festival kickoff in Scranton, Pennsylvania. “We’ve done such a great job of building it all up. It’s kind of like people were getting this impression of me that I’m never gonna make a mistake. I’m not made of Teflon. I’m gonna do things for myself sometimes, as opposed to what people want me to do.”

“If you listen to the song, I’m not saying the most graceful thing in the world. It’s not the most heartfelt song,” Drizzy continued. “I say some pretty wild things in regards to women in the actual song. When me and Kanye were in the studio working on a song for Big Sean, we were talking about it. We saw a comedic element to it. I felt that the climate in the world right now, everything in the world is so serious all the time, my life is serious, I just wanted to laugh, instead of taking myself too serious as the heartthrob and walking hand-in-hand into the movies and taking my shirt off. I felt it’s not that time for me yet. Or maybe never. I’m a very multifaceted person. One thing I told ‘Ye is, ‘I really want to act. I want to act in this video.’ ”

“I guess one thing I didn’t consider is what the song personally means to a lot of women,” Drake said. “To those women, I apologize. I do apologize. My intention wasn’t to put anyone down. It was to make them laugh. I wanted people to see something visually different.”

I still could have seen that video done COMPLETELY different.. but to each their own, I guess… but then dude had a chance to redo the video and TURNED IT DOWN. I don’t get it, really. At least he has a BOMB deal, so at least that’s a win?
