Watch Drake Become Kanye, Miley, Bieber & More in "Energy" Vid Here

The world is a-buzz with Drake this afternoon. The rapper dropped a pretty bizarre video for his jam, "Energy," from his last surprise album, If You're Reading This It's Too Late

Watch it via Apple Music right here.

The song directly deals with negativity, Drake claiming others (re: society) are trying to "take his energy." The video has him almost completely reversing the roles, parodying pop stars in some of their biggest moments. He becomes Oprah (here, Oddrake,) Justin Bieber in his now iconic Calvin Klein adKanye West and Kim Kardashian's intimate motorcycle embrace in "Bound 2," President Obama giving a speech and even Miley Cyrus in "Wrecking Ball." (He's not naked save for a pair of boots at a construction site, we're sad to report.)

These impersonations are spliced with images of Drake and his crew, as well as a kid (here, representing young Drizzy.) When the video ends, the kid is shown again...it zooms out, and there's another young Drake pointing a cap gun at the child. Powerful stuff.
