Drake’s new album, Nothing Was the Same, dropped today and a new music video also made its way online (via Complex), for the single Hold On We’re Going Home.
The video was directed by Bill Pope, who has previously worked on a number of feature films as director of photography, including The Matrix, Spider-Man 2 and 3, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World and The World’s End.
The video opens with text which places the action in Miami in 1985, before moving into a club scene that hammers home the place and time with some very Scarface-esque decor and costumes.
The strongest influence here appears to be the Miami Vice TV series but interestingly a shootout late in the video is shot very similarly to the way in which a shootout in the 2006 Miami Vice film was shot. And the damsel in distress set-up bears more than a passing resemblance to the Naomi Harris kidnapping that takes place in that movie too.
