Shot in New Orleans, the Karena Evans-directed clip stars La La Anthony as Drake’s love interest Keke and Phylicia Rashad as her mother. Instagram comedian Shiggy, who helped propel the bounce-inspired song to No. 1 with the “In My Feelings” Challenge, also makes a cameo, as well as Yung Miami of the City Girls and Big Freedia.
The visual opens with Drake pulling up to Keke’s house after she ignores his texts. “I’m trying to tell you, I love you, girl, for real,” he says before her mom hilariously tries to get him to go away.
Rocking a grill, Drake makes his way around Nola as girls perform the viral dance craze on the streets. The 6 God performs in front of a mural of his mentor Lil Wayne and Shiggy shows of his moves on a bus.
But it turns out to be a dream and Drake eventually wakes up. “This kid from New York that spits when he talks all the time did some dance to it and then the world did the dance and Will Smith was there,” he tells his friend CJ.
Soon Shiggy appears in his trailer as a production assistant for another comedic bit. The video ends with viral videos of celebrities doing the “In My Feelings” Challenge, including DJ Khaled, Odell Beckham Jr., the cast of “Queer Eye,” Will Smith, Millie Bobby Brown, and Shiggy himself.
“In My Feelings” is the third No. 1 single off Scorpion following “God’s Plan” and “Nice for What.”
