DRAKE FOUND LOVE IN JAMAICA
Drake has already captured the heart of Roc Nation’s Rita Ora in his “Over” video. Now the hip-hop bachelor is falling for a new luscious lady in the video for “Find Your Love,” the second single from his debut album Thank Me Later.
Maliah Michel plays Drizzy’s on-screen love interest in the Anthony Mandler-directed clip, which was shot in Kingston, Jamaica, with dancehall artist Mavado. The video vixen’s previous work includes Busta Rhymes’ “Touch It (Remix),” Fabolous and Ne-Yo’s “Make Me Better,” and Lloyd’s “Get It Shawty.”
The video and its production was kept tightly under wraps from foreign and local media. However, a source close to the production revealed that the video was a three-day shoot being filmed throughout Kingston, which started on Monday.
A close source revealed information, “Mavado has a major role in the video. He and Drake are good friends and when Drake came here the last time he saw some scenes he wanted to have in his next video and thought that Mavado fit the role well.” According to the source, on Drake’s last visit here, he had also recorded some material and he and Mavado are expected to do work together in the future.
