Plenty of NBA players have been tweeting about Drake’s new album “Certified Lover Boy,” but only one was worthy of appearing in his new music video: Kawhi Leonard, of course.
The Clippers star made a cameo in the music video for “Way 2 Sexy,” which was released on Friday and features rappers Future and Young Thug. Leonard helped the trio recreate the visuals from Boyz II Men’s “Water Runs Dry” video, complete with all-white outfits and choreographed dancing. (If there are any Clippers fans concerned about Leonard jamming too hard after offseason knee surgery, don’t worry. The movements were pretty limited.)
Leonard also gave the NBA Twitterverse plenty of meme fuel with this Ricky Bobby-esque pose.
The Drake-Kawhi connection goes back to the 2018-19 season, when Leonard led the Raptors to the NBA title with one of the most impressive individual playoff runs in league history. Drake, a Toronto native and official brand ambassador for the Raptors, was routinely seen cheering on his hometown squad from the sidelines and hopped on the team bus for the championship parade two years ago.
Even with that bit of context, though, no one could have seen this coming. But surprise appearances are just the kind of thing that “fun guys” do.
