Drake Shoots “Child’s Play” Video, Shows Up at Cheesecake Factory
Drake is definitely up to something as fan account Word on Road posted a series of tweets on Thursday (July 14) showing the rapper shooting a video to his Views cut "Child's Play" with the notion being that portions of it were filmed in a Houston Cheesecake Factory. The below clips show Drizzy with stacks of money at VLive, either filming some borderline explicit scenes for the video or simply enjoying himself. One in particular though captures Drake exiting the aforementioned chain restaurant, a staff member wishing him a great night as he leaves.
When Views first dropped in April, many latched onto the "Child's Play" line "Why you gotta fight with me in Cheesecake? / You know I love to go there," with curiosity, wondering which Cheesecake Drake frequented, and amusement, that a rapper so famous would still dine and hold sacred a restaurant accessible to most everybody.
Also included below is a trophy gifted to Drake by VLive which is labeled an "MVP Award" and reads, “They don’t make awards for loyalty but you deserve it, 6 God," referencing Drake's 2014 song "Trophies." If, or rather when, the "Child's Play" video is released, it will be the first visuals from Views, not counting "Hotline Bling."
While Views was recently dethroned from its top spot on the Billboard Album 200 chart after a nine week run, it did make history, registering the third longest run at No. 1 for any hip-hop album, behind Vanilla Ice’s To the Extreme and M.C. Hammer’s Please Hammer Don’t Hurt ‘Em, which logged 16 and 21 weeks atop the album charts respectively. Check out all the various media assembled from the "Child's Play" shoot below.
