Mr. 10 Million keeps the TML train going with visuals for “Miss Me”. Maybe it’s Drake’s actor side, but there isn’t really a need for this guy to be making so many dramatic videos. The cinematography and post-production work is crazy on this, but it just feels too much for a track like “Miss Me” (that’s not a knock at the track though). The video in itself is great, but I keep feeling that it doesn’t gel with the song that well. Shit, I would’ve been satisfied with a run-of-the-mill Hype Williams treatment as long as it had a 2-second Bun cameo at the “Drake you got’em right?” line, so you can’t say I’m picky.
In terms of the tracks off TML that the public has been given a taste of, this one seems to be getting the most people excited. As stated above in the header, although we finally get to hear the song in its entirety, there’s still radio DJ banter on top of the track, but not so much that it makes “Miss Me” impossible to listen to. It’s going to be interesting to see how this album sells. On one hand, there’s the ridiculous hype for Drake, which we all by now know about. On the other, although that hype has translated into critical acclaim and buzz within the hip-hop realm, he still hasn’t found that smash single yet to give him a chance at breaking platinum with Thank Me Later. We’ll see what happens when this finally drops June 15.
I have a feeling this might not actually be the “Miss Me” Drake was talking about in interviews a few days ago, but that’s what it’s being sold as. This will be off of TML, in full and free of tags. There’s no Carter verse on this version, but Drake does hold his own regardless. It’s hard not to see the hate being directed at Drake from seemingly everyone, but it’s dumb not to have expected any different with a personality like Drake’s and such a quick rise up the ranks. All that matters to me is that I as a fan enjoy it and that Toronto will wake the fuck up and support it. Boi-1da continues to work his magic behind the boards and delivers yet another dope beat. In terms of TML tracks that have been heard in whole or partially, I’d rank this second, between “Fireworks” above and “Shut It Down” in third.
