After the threesome previously linked up on “D4L” from Drake’s Dark Lane Demo Tapes, they come back hotter than ever to flip Right Said Fred’s 1991 Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit “I’m Too Sexy.” Directed by Dave Meyers, the video shows Drake transforming into multiple characters, from an ’80s workout instructor to an older beach bum who clearly let himself and his form go. But like his paperback romance novel cover-worthy scene as Pirate Papi, Drake’s just getting started with the theatrics.
While the song itself is a play on the English band Right Said Fred’s classic, Drake joins Future, Thugger and former Toronto Raptors player Kawhi Leonard in all-white ensembles and languid yet dramatic hand gestures à la Backstreet Boys’ 1999 “I Want It That Way” music video — before Leonard snaps out of it. Drizzy also channels Michael Jackson’s 1991 “Black or White” dance moves as well as Sylvester Stallone’s violent antics from his Rambo franchise (cleverly titled Drambo, in this instance), while Future wears a nearly identical outfit as Prince from his and The New Power Generation’s 1992 “Sexy M.F.” video. Thug later shows off how his attractiveness matches each season in a calendar photo shoot.
“Way 2 Sexy” is one of 21 songs featured on 6 God’s sixth studio album Certified Lover Boy, which he released on Friday.
