Drake Premiere: Best I Ever Had Music Video

Drake’s new video for “Best I Ever Had,” directed by Kanye West, premiered Wednesday night. In it, Drizzy coaches a basketball team of well-endowed female lovelies, clad in revealing pink uniforms, who face a more focused and skillful squad of women. Coach Drake doesn’t seem heartbroken that his hoopers won’t exactly draw comparisons to the Dream Team.

“Some of us younger men, we refer to our affiliation with women like a roster,” Drake said, explaining the clip’s concept to MTV News. “You have key women in your life when you’re single and doing your thing.”

“Best I Ever Had” is the first video from his debut LP, Thank Me Later, which he aims to release later this year, now that he’s signed to Lil Wayne’s Young Money label. Of course he does. He’s red-hot right now, thanks to the mixtape So Far Gone.

“I just gotta get this tour knocked out,” he said earlier this week, smiling about going on the road as part of the America’s Most Wanted Music Festival, which will feature Lil Wayne, Soulja Boy Tell’em and Young Jeezy. “I am working on [the album] right now. I’ve actually started. I was in the studio with Pharrell, and it’s basically a pretty lax process for us.

“Basically, So Far Gone worked,” he continued, talking about his strategy for the highly anticipated LP. “So, let’s just try to do it again. You know, let’s try and act as if we were making a second disc to So Far Gone.”
