You’ve heard POTUS Barack Obama spit “One Dance,” now it looks like you’ll soon be able to see Drake himself perform the song for its official music video. As FADER reports, Drake is reportedly in South Africa filming the visual for “One Dance.” Drake, Popcaan, Soweto dance crew Material Culture, Kyla, Apple’s director of original music content Larry Jackson and Drake himself have all been in or are currently in South Africa, with pictures of the aforementioned high-profile figures strewn across social media. Drake was also at Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory earlier this week. No official word regarding the video shoot has emerged, but thanks to FADER’s reporting, it looks like we have some solid information to go by. Check out some clips and pictures pieced together by FADER below.

SOWETO. ?⚠️? The most spirited yet dangerous community that I have ever come across. Every bit of cool that every other place pretends to possess, you exude here with genuine ease. Forty years almost to the day of the Soweto youth uprising, which was the catalyst for the eventual dismantling of apartheid, I am so proud that @amandler and I chose to come to this amazing township to film what easily is the most powerful piece of visual art that I have ever captured — but now with the youth of Soweto today. Thank you for restoring my spirit, faith and inspiration today. WOW. ✊???✊?
