Music Video: Drake - Best I Ever Had
Drake told MTV News before his show at Manhattan's S.O.B.'s that he was in the process of putting together a music video for the song. He explained: "I been working with a couple people on some ideas," he explained. "I don't wanna say who yet, because everything isn't confirmed yet. It should be pretty solid in the next few days. The biggest thing about that song is that a lot of women come up to me and say, 'That's my song, because it really makes me feel special.' The song was written about the loves for Drake's girl friend Camille. They had been dating for some time. So I told the directors that were interested that I just want the visuals to coincide with that feeling. I want women to feel special when they watch the visual and say, 'I wish that was me,' or 'I know that feeling.' That's the goal with the video -- to be genuine and not sappy. Be sexy and keep it together, but still make women smile."
The video was shot in Brooklyn, New York at Bishop Ford Central Catholic High School. Kanye West was the director of the video. Trey Songz, Fabolous, Consequence, and the song's producer Boi-1da made cameos in the video, as well as artists signed to Young Money Entertainment, such as Lil Twist, Shanell, and Lil Chuckee.
A clip of the video was shown June 30, 2009 on It's On with Alexa Chung, and the full version of the video premiered on the internet on July 1, 2009. The full version of the video made its television debut on AMTV on July 2, 2009.
