Let me try to make some sense of this: at the beginning of the year, we saw a trailer for the above Take Care-era clip, which is directed by Frenchman Mikael Colombu. Then, Universal reportedly had the video taken down. Now, we have the video (thanks to the director), but the audio has been replaced by classical music (Verdi’s ‘Don Carlo’ to be exact)….

I can only assume that Universal (and maybe Drake) hated the video and cancelled the move, only to have the director put out the visual sans-single anyway.
