The infamous Cheesecake debacle sets the scene in Drake's new "Child's Play" video, starring Tyra Banks.
It's been a fairly mundane evening in the rap world. Drake just changed that with the release of the first music video off his latest album, VIEWS, aside from last year's video to "Hotline Bling," a bonus track on the LP. As "Childs Play" finds Drake painting a detailed scene of a messy relationship reaching its breaking point at The Cheesecake Factory, one would expect the music video to be a highly entertaining piece of cinema. Indeed, the 12-minute clip, directed by Spiff TV, is just as much a short film as a music video. It begins in a particularly upscale Cheesecake location. The woman dining with him? Tyra Banks.
While Drake visits the men's room, Banks gets her claws on his phone and discovers that he didn't spend any time in the studio last night, as she had been told. Predictably, a heated exchange ensues, and Banks eventually storms out, leaving Drake alone at the table with the restaurant's signature dish all over his face. The music begins as he drops the legendary opening line.
