♥ Drake’s “Best I Ever Had”: Very Disappointing

Writter Ivory Sherman explains… Drake’s new music video was not very good and for such a talented artist, he needed a better video.

Rapper Drake’s video for his first single, “Best I Ever Had,” was released on July 1 and it’s his first single from his third mix tape, “So Far Gone.” I admit that I have recently become a Drake music fan. I have supported Drake since he was on “Degrassi” so I decided to support him with his music. But his new music video may have changed my mind. The music video is not good. It is not because it was poorly produced but rather the theme of the music video does not correlate with the message of the song.

In the music video, Drake is coaching a woman’s basketball team. Their uniforms are pink and skintight and they lose to the opposite team (who are not wearing skintight uniforms). My problem with the video is not that the camera is using its slow motion feature to highlight that these women are well endowed. My problem with the video is that it does not match with the song but most importantly, Grammy-winning artist Kanye West produced it. Kanye West is a talented music artist and producer, but he did not do a good job on Drake’s video (everyone has their bad days, right?).

I would like to know what Kanye was thinking about when he believed that a women’s basketball team would go great with a song called “Best I Ever Had.” I expected to see Drake on a college campus talking to a girl on his cell phone saying, “Sweat pants, hair tied, chillin’ with no makeup on/that’s when you’re the prettiest, I hope that you don’t take it wrong.” Instead, I saw women with huge breasts wearing skintight uniforms asking Drake, “But I thought I was the best you ever had?”

Final Thought: Drake is a new and upcoming artist but his music video should have been better. Best I Ever Had? More like the worst I’ve ever seen. I hope that the next music video will be better and it would also help if it would make some kind of sense.

  1. I’m sorry, do you want to see sex in a music video??? I dont think so. I have to say that, I really dont get the video but I get the song, and I dont think if they matched the video with the song, its gonna be vulgar and I think parents would bitch about it! Forealz back off of Drake, he’s an amazing artist and he is bring new music for us older teens!
