Drake recruited country superstar Morgan Wallen to co-star in his new music video for “You Broke My Heart.” On Wednesday (Dec. 20), the 37-year-old Canadian rapper shared the music video for “You Broke My Heart,” which is the latest single from his eighth studio album, For All The Dogs Scary Hours Edition, and it featured a surprise cameo from the “Last Night” singer.

“You Broke My Heart” Music Video Co-Starring Drake And Morgan Wallen

Directed by Theo Skudra, the “You Broke My Heart” music video begins with a scene that features Drake and Wallen having a conversation about their recent breakups over a cocktail in an undisclosed fancy restaurant.

“Got to tell you,” Wallen says, to which Drake says, “Tell me… [I] know you wanna say it.”

“I didn’t like her,” Wallen reveals. “Yeah, I know,” Drake replies. Morgan Wallen then admits that, “I think she might have been the wrong girl anyway.” Drake then questions “well, what now?” before the pair of hitmakers laughed together as they cheersed their drinks together and collectively began to sing “I’m kinda glad she gone.”

After taking a final sip of their drinks, the pair of newly single bachelors exit the restaurant and head out for a night on the town in search of their next love interest. Upon exiting the fancy establishment, where they had drinks, Drake and Wallen hopped into Drake’s car and drove off.

As they drove down the street, a pair of women, acting as their exes (Grace Matthews and Taylor Morris), set the car ablaze, killing the two artists. Matthews and Morris then lip sync the song as they danced around the streets with the car burning in the background and pedestrians are seen running from the explosion.

New Album, For All The Dogs Scary Hours Edition

Co-written by Drake, whose real name is Aubrey Graham, alongside Anderson Hernandez, Michael Mulé, Isaac De Boni, Alexander Morand, Frank Wilson and Kenny Thomas, “You Broke My Heart” appears on the Scary Hours edition of Drake’s eighth studio album, For All The Dogs.

For All The Dogs Scary Hours Edition, which serves as a reissue of his eighth studio album, For All The Dogs, features the project’s original 23 songs as well as 6 new tracks, including “Red Button,” “Stories About My Brother,” “The Shoe Fits,” “Wick Man,” “Evil Ways (feat. J. Cole)” as well as the aforementioned track, “You Broke My Heart.” In addition to serving as a reissue of For All The Dogs, For All The Dogs Scary Hours Edition is also a continuation of Drake’s second and fourth extended plays, Scary Hours (2018) and Scary Hours 2 (2021).

Wallen’s Appearance Unexpected, Drake’s A Fan Of Morgan Wallen’s Music

Wallen’s cameo in the music video was unexpected, as he doesn’t sing on the track. Drake likely included Wallen in the clip as he is a big fan of his music. Earlier this month, Drake requested and jammed to Morgan Wallen’s chart-topping hit, “Last Night,” during the OVO Sound owner’s Drake Vs. Stake livestream on Kicks.

“You know what I’m going to play? I’m gonna play Morgs… I’m gonna play some of that Morgan,” Drake told viewers before pushing play on the track.

Neither Drake nor Wallen have commented about this unexpected collaboration. The hitmakers, who are two of the most-streamed artists in the world, have never released or recorded a duet to the public’s knowledge.

Wallen Recently Compared to Drake

During a recent interview with Billboard, Seth England, who is the CEO of Wallen’s record label, Big Loud, compared Wallen to Drake. “Drake can do a hardcore R&B song, a trap rap song or a Caribbean-tinged beat global pop song. I think Morgan is that in our genre,” England shared at the time. “His voice is always going to be country even if he’s singing pop melodies, and the verses are likely to have some country imagery.”

This isn’t Wallen’s first time collaborating with a Hip-Hop artist. In fact, on this day in 2021, Wallen appeared on Lil Durk’s hit, “Broadway Girls,” which went on to become a fan-favorite song as well as dominated the charts and amassed tens of millions of streams worldwide.
