Drake released his highly anticipated single today which is titled “Laugh Now Cry Later” featuring Chicago rapper, Lil Durk. The music video for the record was released at the same time as the single and that caught the attention of all of social media.
The visuals displayed Drake and Durk at the huge Nike campus in Beaverton, Oregon. Nike is one of the most impactful brands in sports so there were some huge cameos included in the Laugh Now Cry Later video as well.
These cameos included Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant, Cleveland Browns star Odell Beckham Jr, and current NFL free agent and former Super Bowl champion, Marshawn Lynch. Drake was seen in one of the basketball gyms with Durant playing one on one and Beckham and Lynch were both on a football field with him. One of the most exciting scenes was when Lynch tackled Drake and told him to get off the block. Social media instantly viewed this as one of the best music videos of 2020.
“The laugh now cry later video literally shows you how legendary Drake is,” said @VLEXXXGalindo on Twitter. “He is the biggest star of our time and its so insane to see the kind of access he has in this world. Truly inspiring if you ask me
Other users have said that they have continued to watch the music video for Laugh Now Cry Later and that Drake came through with another hit record. He also added that his upcoming sixth studio album would be titled ‘Certified Lover Boy.’
Yoooo that Laugh Now Cry Later is the one. I see you Drake.

Drake initially announced prior to the release of his ‘Dark Lane Demo Tapes’ mixtape in May that the album would be released this summer. That hasn’t happened yet but fans at least have the title of it. No official date has been set as of now for Certified Lover Boy. Last month, he collaborated with DJ Khaled to release the singles “Greece” and “Popstar” which have done very well as well. Those will appear on Khaled’s upcoming ‘Khaled Khaled’ album.
Drake has been winning big with other records in 2020, too. In January, he appeared on Future’s “Life Is Good” single which has since been certified 6x platinum. Drake also released his “Chicago Freestyle” featuring Giveon and “When To Say When” singles shortly after that. In April, he received another No. 1 single with his dance song, “Toosie Slide.” That record became a very popular hit on the TikTok app as well as users tried their best Drake dance imitation from the music video.
