If there is one thing you can say about Drake, It’s the fact that he knows how to change the narrative to his own liking. Last night (June 13) Drake released the video to his latest track, “I’m Upset” that doubles up as a reunion between himself and his former Degrassi co-stars.
Drake has once again tagged director Karena Evans, who directed the videos for “God’s Plan” and “Nice for What,” to direct the 6-minute video. The video shows Drake as his Degrassi character Jimmy Brooks meeting up with his on-camera bestie Spinner, played by Shane Kippel. The two eventually makes it to Degrassi Community School where the reunion is held, the duo is greeted by several stars from the 90’s- 2000’s show. The visual shows the now-grown stars dancing through the halls, drinking in the stands, and taking selfies before the things end in a huge fire. The closing credits show a mixture of original footage from the series alongside new clips from the video.
