Drake Shoots Video for ‘5AM in Toronto’ [Photos]
Thanks to Word on Road, behind-the-scenes images — caught by what seems to be a grainy cell phone camera — reveal activity on the set, though very little. However, from what we gather, it looks like the clip is being shot in the dark with a black light illuminating the scene around the OVO leader.
This, we surmise, is to give the impression that he’s rapping at 5 a.m. as the song title suggests. According to the blog, the video was filmed at Beach Blast, which is an indoor gym in Toronto.
What really stands out in the photos is Drake’s sweatshirt. The Young Money superstar’s crewneck showcases a picture of the original Cash Money Millionaires — Mannie Fresh, Juvenile, Birdman, Lil Wayne and Young Turk — and the typographic lettering that reads, “Welcome to the Family.”
So it will be interesting to see what kind of visuals Drizzy is bringing with his ‘5AM’ video, which is being helmed by legendary videographer X (aka Little X).
Drake is currently working on his third album, ‘Nothing Was the Same,’ due this summer.
