Stream Drake’s Short Film ‘Please Forgive Me’ Four Days Early

Drake is returning to the small screen with Please Forgive Me, a short film project released exclusively on Apple Music.

Around 1 a.m. EST on Monday morning, Apple Music released Please Forgive Me, a short film inspired by Drake’s latest album Views. The film was previously scheduled for a September 30 release date, but the 6 God revealed on Sunday that he would be dropping the visual a few days early.

The 21-minute film is directed by Anthony Mandler, who is most known for his music videos for Rihanna, Jay Z, Drake, Usher, and dozens of other pop stars. Drake and producer Noah “40” Sheib handle the score for the film.


Please Forgive Me continues a successful year for Drizzy. Views received mixed reviews but it has been a powerhouse on the charts, enjoying 12 weeks at the top of the Billboard 200 and selling 1.4 million copies since its release on April 29, 2016. “One Dance” was also Drake’s first Billboard Hot 100 number one single as the lead artist, lasting ten weeks at the top of the charts. He hit the road with What A Time To Be Alive collaborator Future for the Summer Sixteen Tour, which began in July and is slated to continue through October.

In recent weeks, “Child’s Play” received the visual treatment, co-starring Tyra Banks as a girlfriend who caught him slipping during a date at Cheesecake Factory.
