WATCH: Drake Drowns His Sorrows in New Video
Toronto rapper drinks away his heartbreak in the clip for "Marvin's Room," off his fall LP 'Take Care.'
In Drake’s new video for “Marvin’s Room,” off his second album Take Care (out October 24), the Toronto hip-hop smoothie, who perpetually builds songs around his tender heart, finds a destructive alternative to dealing with the pain of unrequited love: He hits the bottle. Hard.
Posted to his October’s Very Own blog, the cinematic clip flashes footage of blurry city lights with Drizzy hunched over the bar all alone in a crowded club, drowning his sorrows in booze, as he emotes about the girl he loves, who has shacked up with another man.
“I’ve been in this club too long / I’ve been drinking soo much,” he croons over minimal beats and subtle atmospheric washes. “I’m gonna call her anyway.” Judging by Drake’s wasted state in the video, that’s a bad idea. Maybe sober up and sing for her instead?
