A short clip from Drake's music video for his single "Successful" has been put out in a bid to provide fans with a sneak peek. The snippet sees Drake and his collaborator Trey Songz performing the song in a balcony with city view at night being featured on the background.

"It was so eerie. Like it was haunting, almost," Drake told MTV about the scenes he filmed. "I was like, 'Yo, that's it. You need to use that.' He started playing this patch, and just every note that he played fell into place."

Trey agrees with Drake's opinion saying, "It was simplistic, but it knocks. It's eerie, it's dark. The first thing I laid down was the gothic, reverb-driven harmony: 'arrrgh, arrrgh, arrrgh.' I couldn't think of what I wanted to hear on it, so I did a whole bunch of harmonies [until I found the right one]."

The video was directed by Jake Davis and shot in Toronto, Canada earlier this month. "Successful" actually has Lil Wayne's vocal on the hook in addition to Trey Songz's. But, its music video has been filmed without Weezy's verses. There is no word on when the video will come out.

"Successful" comes off Drake's mixtape "So Far Gone" which has been confirmed to get a re-release treatment across U.S. on September 15. The song so far peaked at number 3 on Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
