The scantily clad women in the Kanye West-directed video for Drake's "Best I Ever Had" has drawn mixed reactions from celebrities across cyberspace.
Drake recently defended the deeper meaning behind his "Best I Ever Had" video.
"The concept of the video is, I'm a coach at a high school and the girls of my life are all on my high school basketball team," he explained. "Throughout the video you see us prepping for this big championship game, and my team ends up losing. You see the looks on their faces at the end of the video, but the moral of the story, I guess, is win or lose, you can still be the best to somebody. When women see the video and see all the breast and ass, hopefully they don't take offense. Hopefully they see the real meaning." (Complex)

Miami-based producers Cool and Dre think all of the attention, negative or positive, is good for Drake.
"any str8 dude should be satisfied with the video..lets be honest..the opening scene is massive...the moral of the story is t&a can get u on the court but true talent wins the game everytime... if u are a female easily offended by "half nekked video chics" it's easy to miss the point...but its understandable... at the end of the day, the point is to create dialouge and as u can see, the video is a trending topic. so mission accomplished!"
