Drake has partnered with Apple Music and music video director Anthony Mandler on a 23-minute film to accompany his album "Views." The album included Drake's no 1. hit "One Glance," but the track did not originally come with a music video.

The film, "Please Forgive Me," was co-written by Apple Music's head of content Larry Jackson, and will live exclusively on Apple Music. Mandler, whose career has notably included 16 videos for Drake's current on/off girlfriend Rihanna, was also a co-writer as well as director.

The storyline centers around Drake's girlfriend being offered a million dollars to sleep with someone (a plot that references 1993 Demi Moore movie "Indecent Proposal.") Cue lots of action and explosions as Drake takes revenge against the guy making the proposal, in a slick and violent denouement.
