The music video depicts Drake rapping in several different scenes and doesn’t follow a narrative. He raps centre field in Toronto’s Rogers Centre as the stadium’s scoreboard is lit up with the title of his November 15 album, Take Care, while being surrounded by his fellow crew members in front of Toronto’s historic Guild Park, in front of a rundown building with the letters “OVOXO” sprayed in graffiti by ‘Mer’ on the wall and at the head of a dining table, puffing on a cigar with an assortment of wine bottles scattered about.
