Drake dropped his highly-anticipated short film “Please Forgive Me” on Monday morning, just after 1 a.m. ET on Apple Music.
The Toronto rapper previously announced the film would drop on September 30, but surprised fans by releasing the video early. The short film features several cuts from his “Views” album and new music by Noah “40” Shebib.
Directed by Anthony Mandler, “Please Forgive Me” pays homage to the 1993 film “Indecent Proposal” with Drake starring as a suave gang member whose girlfriend is approached at a party by a man who offers her $1 million dollars to sleep with his boss. The plot thickens when Drake and his partner set a trap to steal the money with a plot that may or may not backfire.
The full short film features the music video for Drake’s single “One Dance” as well as action sequences set to “Views” tracks including “Hype”, “Controlla”, “Views”, “9” and “Summer’s Over Interlude”.
“Please Forgive Me” is only available on the subscription service Apple Music but you can check out a snippet of the film posted by Drake to Instagram below.
Aside from the release of “Please Forgive Me”, Drake has more cause for celebration.
“Views” has just become the first album to surpass one billion streams on Apple Music. The rapper posted photos of himself celebrating the milestone with Apple CEO Tim Cook on Instagram.
