Drake released a brand new album on September 3rd, 2021 – Certified Lover Boy. The much-anticipated album finally dropped on Friday and as per ESPN, athletes are “here for it“.
Of course, along with new music comes new music videos and one of Drake’s new videos has got Twitter going wild. Let’s take a look at fans’ reactions to Kawhi Leonard’s cameo on Drake’s music video for ‘Way 2 Sexy’ featuring Young Thug and Future.
Who is Kawhi Leonard?
Kawhi Leonard is an NBA player for the Los Angeles Clippers.
Born on June 29th, 1991, in LA, Kawhi has the nickname of the “Claw” for his ability of taking the ball away from the opponent.
He was drafted into the NBA in 2001 and has played for the San Antonio Spurs and the Toronto Raptors. The latter is likely where his connection to Drake comes from given that Drake is Canadian.
Kawhi Leonard’s cameo
Drake is no ordinary basketball fan, he has often been seen courtside at many a game, but the rapper takes things a step further as he’s a superfan of the Toronto Raptors. He’s even the global ambassador for the NBA club.
His love for basketball goes quite far back, too. In 2009, he collaborated with Lil Wayne, Kanye West and Eminem on “Forever” for LeBron James documentary – More than a Game.
Given his huge love for the Toronto Raptors, it makes sense to feature Kawhi Leonard in his Way 2 Sexy video.
Fans react to the Way 2 Sexy video
In what looks like some kind of Boyz 2 Men parody, Drake has enlisted Future and Kawhi to dance in his new Way 2 Sexy video and fans are loving it.
One person Tweeted: “Kawhi, Thugger, Drake and Future just out there like Jagged Edge hshshsh“.
Another said: “This mf Drake got Kawhi to make an appearance outside of an NBA game“.
Someone else took to Twitter and wrote: “YA’LL DRAKE GOT FUN GUY KAWHI TO DANCE LIKE HES IN A BACKSTREET BOYS VIDEO“.
