While the visual clip for “Recognize” — a taste of his recent studio debut, PARTYNEXTDOOR TWO — has those celebrity cameos, to its credit, it doesn’t play them up.
Instead we get a grainy, home-recorded video à la Lana Del Rey that flickers between dark shots of the lead singer in an arcade, behind shutters in a house, Rodeo Drive at nighttime, a game of hoops, and a yacht.
Drake only appears to spit his verse toward the end in the smoky arcade and behind him, a blink-and-you-might-miss-it Kylie Jenner nonchalantly bops along to the music.
Even though this is the first time Kylie Jenner and Drake naturally appear in a sentence together, it’s not surprising that the youngest Kardashian is venturing into hip-hop. After all her brother-in-law is Kanye West, and, just yesterday, her sister Khloe appeared in boyfriend French Montana‘s new video for “Don’t Panic.”
PARTYNEXTDOOR TWO is out now on Drake’s label OVO.
