Drake promised that he would deliver a video for the title track from his Take Care album, and the Young Money rapper has come through on his word. Rihanna joined him on set this week where the two filmed the anticipated music video for their collaboration track. The two stars posed for a photo with video director Yoann Lemoin.
“We’re working on definitely the “Take Care” video, which we’re trying to get shot soon and a couple of other ones, too, off the album,” Drake told MTV News back in December. “I want to make it perfect — the best video I’ve done to date — so I’m just taking my time.”

The Jamie xx-produced “Take Care,” with its pounding bass drum and sparse piano melody, tells the story of two lovers ready to leave behind their sketchy pasts in favor of a fruitful relationship together. Drake and Rih’s real-life fling (one the rapper addressed on 2010’s “Fireworks”) only helps to enhance the song’s appeal. Standing as both an endearing duet and a club banger, it’s the danceable, Gil-Scott Heron-sampling house build toward the end of the song that truly makes it a standout.
When the first photo from the video set surfaced, fans to took Twitter with their reactions.
