Drake's New Music Video Has Already Launched An Iconic Meme
Despite the overwhelming popularity of his song and accompanying dance challenge for "In My Feelings," Drake opted to drop a visual for a completely different track from his Scorpion album on Friday, July 27. Though the video's release may have come as a bit of a surprise to fans, "Nonstop" quickly turned memes of Drake in a durag, sipping tea into the internet's new favorite thing and with one look at the project it's easy to see why. In the video for "Nonstop," Drake takes things completely next level during what appears to be a moment of "me time" for the rapper as he sits poshly at the table for one, drinking from a teacup. The moment is hilarious, to say the least, and has gone on to become the most talked about snippet from the new release.
The 5 minute visual, which was filmed when Drake was in London to perform at the Wireless Festival earlier this month, features cameos from rappers French Montana, Quavo, and U.K. artist Giggs. While the shots of Drake's high-octane stage performance and his trip on a double-decker bus tour of the England locale invigorate much of the black-and-white spectacle, fans just can't seem to get enough of Drake's tea-sipping session during his visit to the European city.
