Drake short film

Drake releases short film in time for Valentine's Day

Drake is feeling the harsh chills of the winter too, and not just when he jumps from his chauffeured car into the studio. He and OVO pals are trudging through the snow and wearing matching parkas just like you and your friends, and Drake shares this slice of life with you in a new short film Jungle, directed by Karim Huu Do and scored by 40.

If you were planning a lonely Valentine's, forget it: you now have 14 minutes of hi-def Drake at his cheesy, immobile-women-dreaming crisp-est, not to mention the reassurance that no one is more lonely than our Aubrey.

While the brooding and Drakian introduction to the film is not Toronto-porn - that first skyline isn't ours, baby - later footage pays tribute to the city's cabs, Castle Frank subway station, the Don Valley, St. James Town, and more, plus retro Toronto footage and shots of the G20 riots. Plus, new footage of kiddie Drake singing his heart out and trying to get past the doorman as a nobody.

The video and its short, teasing seconds of actual rapping has rumours, like red dust in the club, spiraling that Drake's now overdue new mixtape may drop today. Regardless, may your boots be relatively salt free and your sexy dreams be forever ambiguous and swirling, swirling, swirling.
