Shot by Director X, the comedic new clip for the Epic Records-released single opens with Khaled hassling Drake to appear in his new music video. “This guy is off his rocker,” says a frustrated Drizzy. “Every 5 seconds on my phone (he’s) asking me for something.” Calling Bieber, the fellow Canadians discuss a compromise – agreeing that the 26-year-old will fill in and lip-sync for the “Hotline Bling” lyricist.
The final video sees Bieber rapping about his lavish life and what it means to be a pop star all the while wearing gaudy chains and expensive clothing, or none at all – putting his numerous tattoos on display as he cruises through a mansion.
The artists / friends continue the banter on social media as if the video was real life, with the 6 God shouting out his savior (below) as fans flocked to this post.
