  • DJ Khaled and Drake released the music video for their track, Popstar.
  • The video stars Justin Bieber, who pretends to be Drake.
  • In the hilarious intro, DJ Khaled is seen hounding Drake to make a music video, but the rapper is not able to so he calls in a favour from Justin.


Someone give DJ Khaled and Drake an Oscar, please.

The stars deliver a hilarious performance at the start of their Popstar music video, and we just cannot stop watching.

The video, released on Friday, starts with multiple clips of DJ Khaled hounding Drake to film a music video for Popstar, but due to lockdown restrictions and his busy schedule, Drake just can't do it. But that's okay, he has a solution: Justin Bieber.

Drake calls in a favour from the Biebs, and there you have it – three and a half minutes of Justin pretending to be Drake in a music video. It's brilliant!

"Thanks JB… I owe you one," Drake wrote on Instagram when he shared a snippet of the video.
