Drake’s newly released song, “Laugh Now, Cry Later,” came out at midnight on Friday (August 14) and the video is a five minute Nike ad, well sorta. The video was shot at Nike’s headquarters in Oregon and as Drake arrives in a Maybach, he steps out wearing an unknown pair of shoes, but quickly changes into a pair of Nike’s to hoop with Kevin Durant. He then hits the football field for a one-on-one game with Odell Beckham Jr. but the game ends with a fierce tackle from Marshawn Lynch. Drake and his girl then are seen going through the Nike store buying tons of Nike gear, oddly enough the girl is seen pushing a baby stroller through the store, although they didn’t arrive at the compound with a baby. Drake and Nike became aligned in 2013, he briefly entertained an ADIDAS deal in 2018, however, nothing transpired. Sources have told Complex that a Nike/OVO sneaker could surface in 2021.
