Drake Recruits Tristan Thompson for Falling Back Music Video – Music News

Drake has recruited Tristan Thompson to play his best man in the music video for his new single Falling Back.

Rapper Hotline Bling surprised fans on Thursday by announcing his seventh studio album Honestly, Nevermind just hours before its release. To mark the release, he released the music video for the album’s first single, Falling Back, on Friday.

The nine-minute video opens with Drake in wedding attire getting ready for the ceremony and the basketball player, portraying his best man, asking, “Are you ready?”

When Drake confirms he is, Tristan says, “(If it) doesn’t fit, we scrap it, we go home, it’s over,” and the rapper replies, “No, I will. Alright bro. It’s a good time for me. I’m ready to settle down. I’m in love.”

The sportsman then helps adjust Drake’s bow tie and checks his beard, while telling him that he’ll “only get married once”.

Drake then marries 23 Instagram models in the polygamy-themed clip, which also features Sandi Graham, Drake’s mother, telling a guest, “I think he takes those really seriously.”

Tristan’s appearance in the video comes the day after his latest infidelity scandal was portrayed on The Kardashians reality show. The episode shows his then-girlfriend Khloé Kardashian finding out that he had fathered a child with Maralee Nichols while they were together. The scandal initially made headlines in December 2021.
