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 director Yoann Lemoine 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, Drizzy Drake admitted 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.
