Morgan Wallen extends a supportive hand to Drake in navigating heartbreak.
On Wednesday, the 37-year-old rap superstar released the music video for his track “You Broke My Heart” from Scary Hours 3, featuring the 30-year-old country music star. In the visually captivating piece directed by Theo Skudra, Drake, also known as Champagne Papi, seeks solace from Wallen after a recent breakup. The two are depicted sharing moments of advice and camaraderie while enjoying a meal in what appears to be a luxurious setting.
As Drake grapples with his emotions, Wallen reassures him, saying, “I think she might have been the wrong girl anyway.” The video captures the essence of friendship and support during challenging times.
“Well, what now?” the rapper questions, before eventually expressing in a melodic tone, “I’m kind of glad she’s gone.”
Following a cheers to the rapper’s ex and a celebration of newfound singlehood, the duo decides to hit the town. Drake suggests, “Let’s see what else is out there. That’s what we need to do,” while Wallen playfully mimes scanning the street for potential new love interests. They proceed to act as wingmen for each other.
However, their cameos are short-lived. The power of a broken heart takes center stage, and when a vengeful ex disrupts their night out, the video transforms into a moody dance sequence featuring performers Grace Matthews and Taylor Morris, offering a different perspective on dealing with a breakup.
“You Broke My Heart” is among several music videos released by the Grammy winner since the launch of his eighth studio album, “For All the Dogs,” in October. The extended Scary Hours Edition, featuring six additional tracks, followed in November. Wallen has been consistently sharing visuals for his songs, including the recent release of the video for “Polar Opposites.” He has also collaborated with guests in other videos, such as J. Cole in “First Person Shooter” and Lil Yachty in “Another Late Night.” The string of music videos adds visual storytelling to complement his musical offerings.
The music video marks Morgan Wallen’s latest venture into hip-hop. While he has been an avid rap fan, the “Thought You Should Know” singer is no stranger to the genre. He achieved No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart in 2021 for his collaboration with Lil Durk titled “Broadway Girls.”
Wallen was also involved in a notable crossover moment at the 2023 CMA Awards when Post Malone joined him and HARDY on stage for a performance honoring John Diffy. This showcases Wallen’s versatility and his ability to transcend musical boundaries.
Morgan Wallen’s appearance in Drake’s new video follows a period of reflection for the “Whiskey Glasses” performer. Several weeks prior, Wallen admitted in a Billboard interview that he believed he had “no excuse” for using a racial slur to describe one of his drunk friends in a video obtained by TMZ in 2021.
Wallen stated, “There’s no excuse. I’ve never made an excuse. I never will make an excuse. I’ve talked to a lot of people, heard stories [about] things that I would have never thought about because I wasn’t the one going through it.”
He continued, “And I think, for me, in my heart I was never that guy that people were portraying me to be, so there was a little bit of like, ‘Damn, I’m kind of actually mad about this a little bit because I know I shouldn’t have said this, but I’m really not that guy,’” referring to being branded as a “full-blown racist.”
Wallen emphasized that if “he was that guy, then [he] wouldn’t have cared” or “apologized,” and he acknowledged that the incident put into perspective “just how much that people listen” to him.
