The "Laugh Now Cry Later" beat is brassy and unhurried, a ideal setting for casual bluster: "Been waking up in the crib and sometimes I don't even know where I'm at", Drake raps.

On Aug. 14 at midnight, Drake released his newest collaboration with Lil Durk, "Laugh Now Cry Later".

Featured in the video are Kevin Durant, Odell Beckham Jr., and Marshawn Lynch, keeping with the sports-related theme of the video.

While riding out the coronavirus pandemic, Drake has stayed busy during quarantine, shooting the video for Toosie Slide in his newly built Toronto mansion, releasing his Dark Lane Demo Tapes collection in May and dropping a collection of singles with DJ Khaled, Greece and Pop Star. The Lover Boy title is also referenced on the back of Drake's Nike shirt in a scene where he plays basketball with Durant.

Kevin Durant can still win a game of 1-on-1.

In the video, we see Drake playing various sports with some incredible athletes. As Drake croons, he runs a long pattern downfield, with Beckham Jr. tossing the ball as far as he can.

The two walk around the store with shopping carts, tossing boxes of shoes and apparel into their carts before buying an enormous amount of product.

The opulent video doubles as a glorified Nike ad, as Drizzy visits Nike's headquarters in OR to shoot some hoops, throw around a football and show off a slightly stiff but mostly half-decent baseball swing.

Throughout the video, Drake takes a amusing, lighthearted approach to the scenes, matching the song's soft tone.

Tonight, Drake drops what seems to be the first single from his new album which is still untitled. We can expect to get a new album from him by the end of summer 2020, according to Complex.
