WATCH: Rapper Drake marries under a chuppah… 23 times

You’ve gotta love Drake. Openly out about being Jewish unlike so many, the Canadian musician has really put his money where his mezuzah is and made a video in which he marries a Jewish girl. Well, 23 of them, actually, in his promo for the song Falling Back from his new album Honestly, Nevermind.

Drake (without a kippah) is the groom standing under a white floral chuppah with an Orthodox rabbi in a black hat officiating who asks the first bride: “Do you commit yourself to being a good wife, according to our values and traditions?” She answers: “I do,” which is then echoed by 22 other women in white behind her.

This is all done in the presence of his fake mother ,who looks like a blonde Barbra Streisand, though Drake’s own mother would no doubt be thrilled if one of the chosen girls was real as he is still single, but has a child, Adonis. No-one escapes from the video before dancing the Hora around Drake and one of the betrothed up on chairs.

This isn’t the first time the multi-platinum-selling artist has used his roots in his music as he posed with a Kiddush cup and Sabbath candles for the cover of his 2012 album Take Care, and staged his own re-bar mitzvah – in the music video for his single HYFR. Sounds like he is just looking for the one, even if it’s only in a song.
