Drake White is bringing the heat in his new video for “Makin’ Me Look Good Again,” the third single from his current album, Spark. In the new video, which stars his real-life wife, Alex, Drake draws back the curtain on their life to reveal some intimate moments.
The video, directed by Shaun Silva, intersperses shots of Drake’s rough-and-tumble life on the road with shots of Drake and his wife at home, enjoying romantic moments together.
“Worn and haggard, weathered and torn / Drug through the keyhole of that back door / Blood shot red behind these shades / I look like hell, yes, I’ve seen better days / And then those loving arms they pull me back in / And there you go, baby, yeah, making me look good again,” Drake kicks off the song.
“‘Makin’ Me Look Good Again’ is special to me just because it was one of those songs that I wrote out of a very vulnerable state of when I got married and when my wife was standing beside me—that she makes me look a lot better than I do when she’s not beside me,” Drake tells Nash Country Daily. It was kind of a humorous type of idea, but it turned out to be that representation of soul. Being from Alabama and being influenced heavily by the Muscle Shoals movement, I wanted this album to represent my soulful roots. That song stands out to me as one that is extra special on the album.”
Drake is currently crossing the country on his Spark Tour 2017, with two upcoming shows at Nashville’s Exit/In on April 12 and 13. Drake will also appear at the Tortuga Music Festival in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., on April 9 and at CMA Music Fest in Nashville on June 10.
