The-Dream made a video for his absolutely bananas track “IV Play” — one of the best songs of the year, for my money — and it could not be any more boring. You have Director X as craftsman here! He got Onyx and 50 Cent rapping in a hockey rink! Drake to reenact his bar mitzvah! Essentially wrote the Ciara-Future fan fiction we’ve all been adorably writing in our minds! I understand this is not the song to go literal on, but with that director credit, I expected a little bit more than scenes of slow twerking and a helicopter. Cool fur coat, though. Watch it below because the song still knocks.
IV Play is out 5/28 via Def Jam.
