Drake Releases New Short Film ‘Please Forgive Me’
Five days ahead of schedule, Drake presents his epic short film Please Forgive Me exclusively via Apple Music. Inspired by his chart-topping album Views, the 23-minute visual was directed by Anthony Mandler and co-stars Popcaan, Fanny Neguesha, Soni Chidiebere, and Kyla Reid.
According to Billboard, the cinematic piece was filmed in a single week in Soweto township in Johannesburg, South Africa, this July, and draws inspiration from movies including Indecent Proposal, The Bourne Identity, and Taken.
Drizzy once again flexes his acting chops in the dramatic, action-packed scenes, which are accompanied by seven songs from Views including “One Dance,” “Controlla,” and “Pop Style,” plus original music by Noah “40” Shebib.
Earlier this month, Drake debuted a video for “Childs Play,” the only other Views song to get a visual until now. Shot at famed strip club V Live in Houston, the Eif Rivera-directed clip co-stars Tyra Banks and Drake affiliate OB O’Brien.
