The uncanny metamorphosis of Drake in the 'Energy' video


Dear fans of Drake,

Nothing seems to stall the OVO head honcho's momentumDrizzy can't stop himself from venturing outside the body and converting into other forms of human life. As he puts it he's "got a lot of enemies," so..., (symbolically) morphing into another person should keep the haters off his back for now.

Although known to be a versatile guy, dropping everything from emotional R&B melodies to hard-hitting Hip-Hop anthems, it was definitely unexpected to see the physical transformations Drake goes through in the visuals to his recent video for 'Energy' from the If You're Reading This It's Too Late mixtape/album.

In the video, released two days ago on VEVO, the former Degrassi star transforms into his own proper version of Oprah Winfrey, OJ Simpson, Miley Cyrus, President Obama, Floyd Mayweather, Justin Bieber, Kanye West, and has a nostalgic moment of himself as a young boy.

As unexpecting as certain moments of the video may seem, Drake usually derives his content from deeper thought and hidden meanings in the music, which means that watching the video more than 1x will help to achieve a better understanding. 

Meanwhile, be prepared for the "energy" to come as the release of Drake's highly anticipated Views From The 6 album approaches, expected to drop sometime later this year.

It always seems like rapper RiFF RaFF and producer Diplo are no strangers when it comes to orchestrating unorthodox music collaborations with equally unique song titles, which is the case for this latest synthesis of hit makers on the song 'Dr. Pepper' featuring OG Maco and CL of 2NE1.
