Drake, Rihanna Get Intimate In 'Take Care' Video Stills

Black-and-white photos show the two artists reigniting their on-screen chemistry in a 'minimal' way.

Drake and Rihanna get close in the long-awaited clip for the MC's single, "Take Care," as shown in video stills that surfaced Monday (March 12).

Reigniting their on-screen chemistry, the two chart-toppers are seen holding each other before a blank backdrop. Simplicity seems to be the focus, as the duo sport plain wardrobes in the black-and-white images.

ThisIsRNB.com, which first leaked the images, revealed that the clip also features a "group of muscular male performers acting out tribal dance scenes" as well as shots of various animals moving in beat to the Jamie xx-produced tune.

News of such a minimalistic and artsy clip isn't all that surprising, as [article id="1679226"]director Yoann Lemoine[/article] revealed to MTV News, "They seemed to be super close and that's what I wanted for the video. Visually, it's a very humble video. ... It's not crazy. It's actually the most indie video I've done my whole life. It's probably the most famous artists, and they were so open to a project that was so minimal."

Lemoine isn't the only one who had high expectations for the visual, but also Drake himself. Back in December, [article id="1676366"]Drizzy Drake admitted[/article] that he wanted the clip to be the best of his video catalog. "I want to make it perfect — the best video I've done to date — so I'm just taking my time," he said.

"Take Care" serves as the duo's first video collaboration since Rihanna's "What's My Name?" where the pop darling takes a stroll through New York City and embarks on a flirty venture with Drake.
