Drake Gets Hands Dirty With 'Over' VideoTuesday, March 16, 2010
"I've shot a lot of videos before, but this is my first attempt to establish myself as Drake the artist," Drake says of the video, which was shot with Mandler (Rihanna, Jay Z) last week.
Involved in the video's overall direction, Drake not only aided in developing the concept but ensuring the visuals reflect the aggressiveness of the song and love story connected to it.
"We talked colors, we talked epic, emotion-evoking visuals," Drake tells MTV. "The story is actually interesting. 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]."
Drake's anticipated album, "Thank Me Later," is due in stores this May.
