Drake is offering cinematic realness in his new short film, Please Forgive Me, an Apple Music exclusive based on his chart-topping album, Views.

The 23-minute Anthony Mandler-directed visual was shot over the course of one week in Soweto, a township in Johannesburg, South Africa, and stars Kyla Reid, Popcaan, Fanny Neguesha, and Soni Chidiebere.

If the action-packed film feels familiar it’s because it draws inspiration from classic films like Taken, The Bourne Identity, and Indecent Proposal.

Please Forgive Me also features several tracks from Views including “Controlla,” “One Dance,” and “Pop Style.”

Noah “40” Shebib also created some original music for the film.
