AceShowbiz - Drake stages a "Degrassi: The Next Generation" reunion in a newly-released music video for his latest single "I'm Upset". The Toronto rapper reunites with his former co-stars, including Nina Dobrev, Ephraim Ellis, Lauren Collins, Shane Kippel and Stefan Brogren, in the clip.
They return to the Degrassi Community School for a reunion party. While others are having fun in the Toronto Raptors home court, Jay and Silent Bob (portrayed by Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith) seem to have a shady deal with principal Archibald "Archie" Simpson (Stefan Brogren).
The group dances in the halls and chases Ephraim, whose character Rick Murray shot Drake's Jimmy Brooks in season 4 and made him paralyzed. As things get wilder with some couples having a romp, the party abruptly ends when a fire breaks out, prompting everyone to run in panic.
The closing credits feature old footage from the TV series alongside new shots of the same actors from the music video. The video was directed by Karena Evans, who previously helmed the visuals for Drake's other songs "Nice for What" and "God's Plan".
Fans clearly get nostalgic upon seeing the music video. "The fact that Drake gathered his old Degrassi castmates and put them in this music video is freaking iconic! Literally screamed. They all look so good," one fan tweeted. Another gushed, "I don't care what anyone says Drake is the goat he just brought out a f***ing Degrassi reunion in the 'I'm Upset' video I'm nostalgic AF!!!!!!!"
In addition to releasing the clip, Drake has announced a release date for his new album. He posted on Instagram the album artwork and simply captioned it with "JUNE 29 2018."
Titled "Scorpion", the album will be a follow-up to his EP "Scary Hours" and his first full-length project since his 2016's effort "Views".
