When you’re Drake, the typical album rollout and release just won’t do, so as he continues on his headline-making Summer Sixteen tour, the Views maestro announced via Instagram on Sunday (Aug. 14) that he will be dropping a film titled Please Forgive Me relatively soon. Back in February of 2015, Drizzy released the short film Jungle which previewed some of the music included on If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late. Similarly, his new film will feature music from Views.
Other than that, there’s not a lot to go off, Drake posting two still images from the film onto Instagram, each showing a woman or women, though there is no context beyond that. The Views digital booklet did feature a set of twins and the above image appears to show another, however as best we can tell they are not the same set.
For all of the high-marks Views has received – its songs streamed over a billion times, sitting atop the Billboard Album 200 chart for nine straight weeks – Drake has still only produced one video for it, which was “Hotline Bling,” released in October of 2015, well before Views was out. While Drake was spotted at a Cheesecake Factory in July, images shared from his “Child’s Play” video shoot, a full month has passed without any further indication of what’s to come or when to expect it. With Please Forgive Me however, Drake may be presenting the visual accompaniments all at once. Check up top and below for the Instagram previews of the film.
