Drake Is Full of Emotions in the "Laugh Now Cry Later" Music Video Featuring Athletes

Aug 15 2020 - 10:30am

What's that? Do you hear that? That's the sound of Drake giving us a five-minute banger that might also double as a Nike commercial. On Aug. 14, the Toronto rapper [1] dropped his latest single, "Laugh Now Cry Later" featuring Lil Durk, and an accompanying music video filled with a bunch of athletes and sports references. The video opens with a midnight stop by the Nike World Headquarters in Oregon and unfolds with what looks like an epic few hours.

Drake plays basketball with Kevin Durant, tosses a football with Odell Beckham Jr., rides jet skis with Lil Durk, and takes Aggy Abby for the shopping spree of a lifetime in the Nike company store. It's all fun and games until he gets rocked by a classic Marshawn Lynch tackle. It's a hilarious realization that the rapper is not quite the star athlete [2] of his peers, but he sure looks good while replicating LeBron James's 2003 NBA Draft outfit.

The single is featured on his upcoming sixth studio album [3], which is aptly titled Certified Lover Boy. The entire music video was shot at the Nike headquarters and in true Drake fashion is filled with meme-worthy moments. Watch "Laugh Now Cry Later" and see if you caught all the athlete-studded appearances ahead . . . baby.
