La LA Anthony and Drake

La La Anthony steams up the screen in Drake's new music video for his #1 hit "In My Feelings" off his Scorpion album. La La plays "Keke" in the dream sequence video shot in New Orleans.

The Karen Evans directed video shows Drake pursuing a reluctant Keke, who orders Drake to delete the women in his phone. Phylicia Rashad plays Keke's no-nonsense mom.

The song spawned a viral Internet challenge that spawned copycat videos all over the world. The challenge was created by Instagram comedian Shiggy, who also appears in the video.

  • TOO REAL

    Lala was not right for that part.

  • Nicole Green

    I agree

  • PhillyFacts

    This why Keisha’s been fronting on Tommy; Tommy finna kill Drake. lol

  • BingBangBoom

    He couldn't have casted a black "Ke Ke" smh.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    1. I love Phylicia Rashad.

    2. I wonder if he had to pay to use that .78 second clip of Will Smith and if so, how many hundreds of thousands of dollars it costs.

    3. LaLa's starting to get that Build-A-Thot weird crotch area.

  • quenelle

    Can we just agree that she's lame already. She must be nice to the bloggers.

  • justlooking

    Acting skills weak, Hopefully she didn't screw up the music vid. How hard can that me..
    Keisha should be a little more edgy.

  • Rayne

    I’m over drake.?

  • Solstice

    Karena Evans directed the video. I enjoyed it. I liked how he included Shiggy. Ms. Rashad was funny and classy! Loved how videos from the fans were included at the end.

  • free

    all the chicks in new orleans and they bring in la la. then she living in a fugging garden district house when the sh*t should have been a shotgun. he look and sound like a doofus. she look and sound like a doofus. sigh. it's a no for me dawg.

  • free

    i didn't like mama rashad either. nola people got hella personality and i think he would have knocked it out the park if he would have used nola natives.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Lala was a weird choice to me. I think somebody like Keyshia Cole would have been a better fit. Maybe even Teyana Taylor.

  • Django the God

    Everybody winning.

    Even Shiggy.

  • PhillyFacts

    Karena has it going on; I enjoyed the video as well it looked like everyone had fun making it. Shiggy stinky face had me dying when he was on the bus.. Love FR to the moon, her and her sister Debbie has always been so classy.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    I'm gonna watch it on mute

  • Applebum

    Lala as the lead girl sucks. Stop trying to make this chick a hit. We remember those TRL days and Flavor of Love reunion hosting days.

    Has drake done an all black (dark skinned, brown skinned) video before? If not, could this be because of the black-faced controversy he went through and his ugly white pornstar baby mama drama?I was shocked seeing so many black girls in one video in 2018? Even the video artworks are of dark skinned girls.

  • BOSS

    LUV ?? IT! Drake looks good with the grill!

  • Dr. P

    I love my hometown, ain't nothing like New Orleans.

  • TawnyDelux

    i liked it, Big Freeda was a surprise

  • Applebum

    The ending skit was super weak and too long. ?

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Happy he included New Orleans and the culture...I mean it's only right if you gonna be using bounce samples in your music.

    Side note: We could've done without Shiggy's lil boy body and the skit at the end. I like how he included the IG vids of folks doing the dance...that was cute.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    You know what-- I noticed the amount of dark skin/brown skin women as well. I thought it was odd. Overcompensating for the black face definitely makes sense.

    ...and he received criticism for the lack of dark skin women in that other video he did that had Issa Rae in it.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Lol at #3

  • Guest

    Cute video.

  • Coy little wink

    La la is black...are you saying she is not black enough ?

  • FukkFolks2018

    Don't forget to go when you leave....if this wasn't my grandma?

  • Coy little wink

    Lolololool

  • ThisIsWhat43LooksLike

    It was cute for what it was, just a fun dance song with a fun little vid to go with it?????

  • TheyDontHearMeTho

    If la la looked like the la la from years ago. She was shaped like a door.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Lol and I still haven't listened to the whole song. That damn challenge messed it up for me...I'm tired of KeKe, she don't love nobody

  • Coy little wink

    You saying they needed someone to put some real stank on it ?

  • Indies beauty

    5 roses for me. The video is dope

  • SummerBaby

    I think it’s a cute video.

  • puppylove

    That's cuz she is one

  • Look@m3

    So we just going to accept this level of acting as ke ke? This era has accepted screwed up acting, screwed up music, screwed up priorities, screwed up standards, screwed up parenting, screwed up politics, ...did I miss anything?
    -10 years of BS

  • dontgetblocked

    loved it

  • Carla

    Maybe he used Lala because her personality in the video is a close match to the real Keisha Chante.. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/23b7723152a9fc774cd4e6a8ff8d8ad0b48e0bd22b48932eac366d07e10ca580.gif

  • Quitedeliteful

    Sandy-Mae, Ima have to override you on this one. This deserves a 5 star salute. I love love love this song and the video is really cute!!!

  • Indies beauty

    Lol right.... I loved the vibe and the dancers.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Watched whole thing. DOPE! Love how he also included his NOLA boss in this video in front of the Wayne mural.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Loved this!! From beginning to end. The little boy twirling the drumstick through his fingers got me, too.

  • Mz_Opinionated

    What does this mean? I have never heard of it and don't want to use it and sound like an idiot. LOL!

  • Solstice

    This!!!!!

  • FukkFolks2018

    Leave AND go. It's an old bayou saying lol. Ms. Rashad showed her Houston with that one?.

  • FukkFolks2018

    YES! We MUST do better. All of our priorities are messed up and this video doesnt make it ANY better. In fact, it makes it worse. LOOK at the stuff we accept! Do better DRAKE.

  • Miss Thang

    I love Phylicia Rashad.

  • Kanyade

    ugh that house. love love love old houses. love the NOLA-everything-culture :) hilarious at the end. dude sittin' in the door lol

  • FukkFolks2018

    She is a WHOLE GEM

  • TheThrowbackBeauty

    So much??????

  • KcoolMuziq

    LaLa(whom I worked with as an ensemble in the flop"Soul Plane") I miss her when she use to DJ at 92.3 The Beat radio station. She has come a LONG way.

  • KLo

    The boy on the drums had me. I thought that was the best

  • Solstice

    Yes Karena is sooo talented. I checked out her Instagram page and sis is the truth! ?? I agree, Debbie Allen and Phylicia Rashad are Legends!! I’m glad Shiggy got his shine ? I love ?? visiting NOLA and Karena was definitely able to capture the vibe and culture. From the bands playing in the street to the boys with the buckets!!! They did that! ?

  • therealkym

    Yaaaaasssssssssss!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!

  • Miss Thang

    Classy, beautiful, dignified, graceful, ugh I wanna be like her when I grow up lol

  • Carrington

    Hasn't La La reached the point where she's above playing video girls?

  • Solstice

    I agree but I like Shiggy!! So happy he got his shine ?with his spitting while talking self. ?

  • Solstice

    Yess!! Much love to NOLA! ??

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    La La and Ludacris (Chris Lova Lova) were DJs on Atlanta's Hot 97.5 (now Hot 107.9) in 2001. I wonder whatever happened to Chris Lova Lova's sidekick, Poon Daddy?

  • TMW

    I loved when she said, “when you leave, make sure you go.” LOL!

  • TamG

    I liked the end with the compilation of the different people doing the dance. A catchy song.

    What I could have done without and what I really wish had never become a thing and would go away already is all the stank twerking. When exactly did dancing like a stripper become en vogue and why did it? I like the little “Kiki” dance; it’s something you don’t mind seeing your kids do. But I do NOT want to see my or anyone’s little girl sticking her azz out and shaking it like that. The video would have been great and PG without that part. Jmo

  • SoChlo

    I like the video!

  • TMW

    I just said that up top LOL!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I agree. The video was average. It could have been better. Phylicia Rashad's acting talent was wasted in this video.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Yes she has an extensive DJ career under her belt.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Drake is every women's fantasy. I guess she couldn't resist his offer.

  • Solstice

    Lol chile, he doesn’t do it for me at all. Never has. But you are right ????? a lot of women do like him.

  • HeyGirlHey

    No! Lol!

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    (whom I worked with in the flop"Soul Plane") - Really now? Which department?
    This is buried on my resume too...IIRC, her "work" was really just a half-day cameo...

  • Around the world
  • CocoBabe88

    I like it. There are some elements I could do without or would change but it was cute. The end was funny

  • Solstice

    Ooh ? girl!! Lmao!! Girl, he NEEDS that beard ??!!! For real ??

  • Judi Jupiter

    I didn't know they even still made music videos...lol

  • garrisonville

    Doooope!

  • Renee26

    Throwin dis ass in a circle lol

    I liked the video...real people

  • NorthDeKalb

    Twerking (the universally adopted term) has been ingrained in New Orleans culture for eons. They don’t think of it as vulgar or suggestive. I lived in South Louisiana in the early 00’s, and they were pounchin (their term for twerking) and swiggling LONG before everyone else hopped onboard and coined a term for it. I can always identify an authentic New Orleans pounch versus a random twerk as the Louisiana version is more of a circular booty roll that incorporates shoulders, head stands, pounchin in a circle etc. My first time going to a club there in 2001, I’m standing at the entrance ?... literally everyone there was poppin dey a$$e$. When the hottest song would come on (Choppa Style at the time) they would run and line up along the wall and pounch while holding it as a prop; they call that ‘catching the wall.’LOL Since this is a New Orleans bounce track, Drake humbly paid homage to the originators and home of bounce music while incorporating the associated dance. Had he not done so, it would seem as though he was just biting their home grown music style and culture. He instead made it all about New Orleans, and I’m sure they appreciate that.

  • Renee26

    Who started the twerking umm Dj Jimmy ... Luke and nem idk. But freaky dancing has been a thing since the 60's...grinding on the dance floor is nothing new

  • Renee26

    ? you're so right

  • Around the world

    LOL Yes girl, he needs that beard!

  • Renee26

    Giggles

  • pecancandy

    You kno we would have turnt it. My mamma would have been like if you don’t get from off my poch( not porch) ima whip yo go go.

  • ?? ?ee?? ???

    She got that Ciara rhinoplasty. Good work!

  • pecancandy

    I actually think Toya Carter Wright would have killed LaLa part, she has that hard New Orleans accent.

  • ?? ?ee?? ???

    Hated it! ?

  • Logan Roberts

    Speak for yourself.

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    Poon was from LA too! I know he worked w/ Luda & Chaka on the management side for a while...

  • Logan Roberts

    Lala wants to be like Kim Kardashian so bad, why I don't know. I remember when I used to watch Melo & her reality show he was so not into her, it was sad.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Cute. Fun.
    We need something fun to help us relax.
    Glad Shiggy is in it. Good look, Drake.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Actually, it is Jamaican dance hall.

  • Karen Brady

    Again, he was sooo not into her. Production & film crew probably stayed shaking their heads.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I agree...I think the old Melo was interested but as LaLa got Hollywood he pulled away...we all know that Melo likes his girls natural and as plain as possible...

  • Queen B

    Lol looks so much fun!! Love the ratchet New Orleans natives

  • Queen B

    True but I don't think Wayne wud approve

  • Queen B

    Chris lova lova and Poon Daddy ? Lol i still remember that little giggle

  • PhillyFacts

    Yesssss!! I loved it!!

  • Logan Roberts

    It was way too embarrassing. Especially when he used to be out of town and she would call him. I used to tell my boyfriend that nig layed up in bed with somebody.

  • free

    [facepalm]

  • free

    i used to LOVE that show. that was on my ride home from work.

  • free

    chris lova lova and poon daddeeeee eeeeeeeee!

  • KcoolMuziq

    Who knew she would become a household name?! On the way of marrying a millionaire baller.

  • Coy little wink

    Who? Let me Google ?

  • Coy little wink

    Damn...did he get his eyes done ?

  • Thanos of Titans

    I do not get everyone's fascination with Lala. lol I just don't see it.

  • cusp_23

    Neither do I ?

  • cusp_23

    Is this the same person that directed Nice for What? If so, I’m not watching it... just the summary of the video is enough to tell me that it probably doesn’t match the song. Just like the video Nice For What didn’t match the song or the energy of the song. I really do not like Lala. I’m sure she’s a sweet person, but there’s something about her presence/personality that screams pathetic/clingy/attention-seeking-wh0re that I just do not care for. ?????

  • cusp_23

    I don’t care for him either

  • Miss Thang

    HELL NAW. I'm Jamaican and we don't claim twerking. We claim wining, though.

  • Miss Thang

    I don't find him even remotely attractive.

  • Shay Bay

    I liked the video. It was cute and funny. I think it was filmed in New Orleans. It's mostly just a bunch of chicks twerking tbh though.

  • Miss3rdWard

    Yaaaassss... you got it ALL the way right! Everyone in Houston has a cousin from the NO (not really, but it feels like it) and I thought I would have to hop on mah soapbox, but you took the words right out mah mouth!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Twerking is a vulgar imitation of winding.

  • blue skies

    I like it!

  • blue skies

    lol

  • blue skies

    yea

  • ann

    We were busy laughing our butts off at him trying to pick up the accent??

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Me, too!

  • abby500

    I don’t think many are fascinated with her.

  • free

    gurrrrllll, i hollered. i have never seen degrassi or whatever but this n*ggas acting is awful lol. then lala come out there looking like she in a spike lee movie.

  • Guess Who

    For some reason, everyone in the video looks 100% completely, wholeheartedly, utterly, totally musty asf.

  • supastar

    Drake make the best videos.

  • pecancandy

    We used to call pu$$y popping in my college days.

  • pecancandy

    Just watched the entire video, On my way to Genes for hot sausage with cheese, no tomatoes, extra pickles and mayo.

  • Bdot

    YAWWWWWWWWWN

  • Malcom Flex

    The Beyonce video influence I see. But too damn long I keep fast forwarding.

  • Malcom Flex

    Maybe she paid to be in the video?

  • Latisaj

    I like it!

  • Around the world

    It's kind of looks like he did.

  • Reenaface

    Lala gets on my nerves with her non acting ass, so desperate to prove something. I heard she messed around with Drake to get the lead role in this video.???????

  • T3

    I'm jealous! I didn't have a poboy when I was home a few weeks ago ?. I brought my coworkers to Jazz Fest this year and took them to Gene's.

  • T3

    I like!!!!! I could be biased since NOLA is home ?????.

  • ann

    As soon as he said "Wozam" we were done??

  • Dahl

    Cute!

  • GrapeCrush

    That was toooo cute!!! ?

  • Coco_Butter

    Shiggy was so funny at the end with that headset like he gone just stare at Drake for the whole 10 minutes. He wouldn’t leave for nothing
    That tickled me

  • KcoolMuziq

    I’m sure he’s not losing any sleep over it.

  • Carla

    Keisha Chante, in the pitcure, is who Drake is referring to in the song.

  • nicfury420

    Ok Drake! Good job. That was cute. The little boy twirling the drum stick was cool & the dog doing the “challenge” was hilariously unexpected & then of course closing out big willy style! Oh & we can’t forget about the Queen Phelicia Rashad ?

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Lol.
    Ok. It "seems" the same. But, yeah, there is a difference. Sorry.

  • gail jones

    That Nawlins heat

  • gail jones

    Me neither

  • Ms. Cree

    I love it! Makes me want to go to New Orleans!!

  • Doink_Ahanahue
