[artist id="2545682"]Drake[/artist]'s "Miss Me" video, featuring [artist id="510062"]Lil Wayne[/artist], is set to premiere Thursday on MTV at 8 p.m. ET.
The clip was recorded in two sessions: one featuring Lil Wayne before the rapper turned himself in to start his yearlong prison sentence and another more recently in July as Drake put the finishing touches on the visual. The video is Drake's third overall from his debut album, Thank Me Later, following "Over" and "Find Your Love," both of which were directed by Anthony Mandler (Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige, Rihanna).
Earlier this year, Drake spoke with Sway prior to the kickoff of his Away From Home Tour and talked about his collaboration with Weezy.
"It's a pretty straightforward [song]," he told MTV News. "It's a song about being away from what you love and hoping that when you're gone, doing you, somebody out there misses you. It goes for Wayne in his situation and it goes for me in my situation, 'cause I'm on the road for I don't how long right now."
Originally, the song was slated as a collaboration between Bun B and Drake. But Wayne, perhaps with his then-impending jail term in mind, heard the record and wanted to join his protégé on the number.
After "Miss Me" debuts on MTV, the video will be featured on all of the MTV 360 channels, including MTV2, MTV Jams and MTV Hits.
