Video: Drake Working On ‘Best I Ever Had’ Video

Ladies love him, girls adore him. No, we’re not talking about old-school rap legend Rob Base — we’re talking about Heartbreak Drake. The Lil Wayne protégé has incredible buzz surrounding his breakout hit, “Best I Ever Had.”

The song is from Drake’s recent mixtape, So Far Gone, released in February of this year. The track is a favorite during his live shows, and it’s also taken off on radio recently.

Drake told MTV News before his show at Manhattan’s S.O.B.’s that he’s in the process of putting together a video for the song.


“I been working with a couple people on some ideas,” he explained. “I don’t wanna say who yet, because everything isn’t confirmed yet. It should be pretty solid in the next few days. The biggest thing about that song is that a lot of women come up to me and say, ‘That’s my song, because it really makes me feel special.’ So I told the directors that were interested that I just want the visuals to coincide with that feeling. I want women to feel special when they watch the visual and say, ‘I wish that was me,’ or ‘I know that feeling.’ That’s the goal with the video — to be genuine and not sappy. Be sexy and keep it together, but still make women smile.”

The Toronto-based MC said he hopes to finish the clip by next month’s BET Awards. In June, the currently unsigned artist will also begin working on his debut album. Drake is rumored to be working with Jay-Z, Kanye West and Lil Wayne, among others.

Check out Drake talking about his mentor Lil Wayne and becoming accepted as a peer in Mixtape Daily, coming up on Monday.

Shouts to Jayson Rodriguez.

    Personally, I don’t see why cats get emotional about Drake (y/h). So far this year there’s been so much rap music from different styles of MC’s that’s been making waves – and a bunch more to come – that you wouldn’t have to try that hard to avoid him if you really wanted to…

    larry bird is the GOAT

  62. silas aka simon Says:

    jordan is the best clutch player in the history of the game but if kobe can carry this lakers team to the trophy, 4 rings = kobe > jordan or at least kobe is the jordan of this era. But damn if lebron had somebody on that team who could hit a consistent outside shot.

    but if the cavaliers cant make it past orlando = mvp fail

    i know you wont tell dmx he is wack because he is an actor
    and i know for a fucking fact 2pac is not wack because he was an actor

    this is why black people are where they are now hating on everybody
    whole time the main dudes who hate on drake watch degrassi and beat their dick to him
