When you have a song titled "Popstar," it would only make sense to recruit one of the biggest ones in the world to star in the video.
In the video for DJ Khaled and Drake's newest collaboration "Popstar," Drake seems annoyed by DJ Khaled's incessant harassing over recording the video for their song. "It's like you give someone everything you have and they're just like 'another one, another one,'" he says, mocking Khaled's signature "another one" tagline. Seemingly fed up with Khaled's nagging, Drake turns to his last resort: Justin Bieber.
Shot by Director X, the next scene finds us in the messy (and very crowded, not socially-distant) bedroom in The Biebs' mansion. Biebs wakes up in a luxurious pajama set, grabs a bottle of liquor, and takes us on a tour of his humble abode, with signs of the usual trappings of wealth: a gigantic mural of the popstar himself, stacks of icy necklaces draped around his neck, party guests dancing throughout the house, and of course, manager to the world's biggest popstars, Scooter Braun.

Speaking of popstars, Biebs continues to lip-sync to Drake's lyrics, including the line that shouts out fellow stars Ariana Grande and JB's ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez. "Look, Ariana, Selena, my Visa/It can take as many charges as it needs to, my girl," Drake raps on the song. Drake also gives Bieber his own shout-out on the song, rapping, "Shit don't even usually get this big without a Bieber face."
After dancing in front of a line of foreign cars with friends, performing on the set of a music video shoot, and hosting a pool party while wearing a teal fur coat, Bieber is brought back to his real life, the one where he walks his dog with wife Hailey Bieber, who also makes a cameo in the video. But when Drake calls him at the end of the clip, Bieber is left to wonder if it was all a dream.
