DJ Khaled’s POPSTAR feat. Drake music video also features Canadian popstar Justin Bieber, who lip-synced his ex Selena’s name, and there is a whole lot going in it. The video starts with DJ Khaled annoying Drake about how the pandemic isn’t allowing him to meet hotline bling himself due to closed borders and sends him a ton of ideas for the music video of their new song POPSTAR which released in July.
‘We have to shoot the Popstar video,’ spouts Khaled. ‘I know the borders closed, they won’t let me in the country, what do you want me to do? The song is too big. We have to shoot the video. We have to figure something out.’
Irritated Drake spills out his artist predicament to his Canadian head of security, Nessel “Chubbs” Beezer, who also makes a cameo in POPSTAR.
“Khaled man, this guy’s off his rocker,” rants Drake on the ideas. “I don’t know what to say…It’s like you someone everything that you have and they’re just like ‘anothaoneanotha one another one.’ ”
Drake who has run out of options decides to use his trump card- Justin Bieber.
‘I can’t do a video,’ Drake says. ‘I can’t even leave the country and this guy wants me to do a video for him. There’s one thing I can do for sure but I’m gonna have to call in a favor though.”
The hyped song starts playing, then the video of what can only be the morning after a heavy party is seen and finally, we see Justin Bieber waking up in his flashy room along with women who are clearly not his wife (Hailey Beiber) passed out all over the bedroom. Bieber than walks around an expensive L.A house with champagne in one hand and Diamond bling around his neck, mouthing and vibing to Drake’s rap bars.
Then Justin sits in between two lovely ladies with two drinks in his hands and in comes Scott Samuel “Scooter” Braun, the popstar’s manager who is named in the lyrics.
The most controversial line in the song comes when Justin Beiber lip-syncs his popular ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez’s first name. Ariana Grande is named as well.
“Aye, look, Arianna, Selena my Visa, It can take as many charges as it needs to my girl”
The music video ends with Justin waking up from this fantasy next to his wife, but turns out it was a nightmare for him. The couple goes about their normal day and then Bieber gets a call from Drake. How Ironic.
