Filmed at the Kentucky Derby last month, the video sees the two rappers get enthusiastic over some of the wagers they placed. The clip blends slow motion footage of the races with the two rapping from the sidelines, with some particularly striking wide-angle shots. It’s a simple performance video, but it puts across the effortless chemistry of its stars.
The two were spotted at the Kentucky Derby, during which Harlow took some time to speak with NBC Sports. In the clip, which went viral, Drake appeared in the corner of the frame looking somewhat inebriated. “I just had to show up. I’m so proud of this guy,” he said of Harlow. “And we’re drunk.” He then clarified that Harlow was sober, but he was “drunk.”
Harlow later said he decided to bet on the same horse Drake did, which resulted in him losing “a lot of money.”
When Harlow spoke about what it was like to work with Drake, he revealed that he actually added more bars to his verse after the 6 God turned in his. “The moment he did it. He went stupid… I feel like that’s one of my best verses. But he went so crazy that I was like, ‘Yo I’m gonna have to add bars or everyone’s gonna say he bodied me on my shit,” he told The Breakfast Club.
Harlow previously supported his recent album with the black-and-white video for “First Class.” Drizzy isn’t the only high-profile collaborator on the record, though, as there’s some heavy-hitters such as Justin Timberlake, Lil Wayne, and Pharrell also present on the record.
Watch the video for “Churchill Downs” above. Jack Harlow will be hitting the road this September for his Come Home the Kids Miss You Tour, which will feature City Girls as support on the two-month trek.
