Directed by Dave Meyers, the absolutely wild “Way 2 Sexy” visual shows all frequent collaborators having a lot of fun, with a slew of references to iconic music moments and movies. Drake, in particular, gives us looks inspired by romance novels and Italian heartthrob Fabio Lanzoni, Rambo, Michael Jackson, Prince, and even the Backstreet Boys. In other words, it’s pretty goofy, but in a knowing and fun way.
Other moments worth highlighting include Drake mouthing to the Right Said Fred sample on the song, Young Thug going through the months with multiple seasonal looks, Aubrey rocking a dad bod, and Kawhi Leonard showing up for a very brief cameo. There’s also a short interlude, in which Drizzy advertises a fragrance entitled “Wet, by Drake.”
After a lot of teasing and some back-and-forth with Kanye West amid the prolonged rollout for his album Donda, Drake’s Certified Lover Boy arrived on streaming services in the early hours on Friday. Featuring appearances from the likes of Jay-Z, Lil Durk, Lil Baby, and Travis Scott, and others, CLB marks the 6 God’s first full-length studio album since 2018’s Scorpion.
