On August 2nd, Drake dropped his highly-anticipated “In My Feelings” music video featuring none other than New Orleans as his location of choice. From the Garden District to downtown, Drake and his comrades have a good time getting down all around the city. The video even features special appearances from the Queen Diva herself Big Freedia and Saints running back Alvin Kamara. See where Drake went to in his “In My Feelings” video then be sure to add them to your list for the next time you’re in New Orleans.
In the beginning of the video you can see the Mercedes-Benz lit up blue and gold, which YOU ALREADYY KNOWWW means it’s going to be an epic New Orleans video (Did you get my Big Freedia reference?).
You see Drake waiting outside of this Garden District mansion, (the New Orleans Opera Guild home), talking to the infamous Keke, which makes me really miss his acting days. The mansion featured in the video can be found on Prytania Street on the corner of Second Street.
The French Quarter
You can see throughout the video that there are many dance scenes around various parts of the French Quarter.
Dat Dog on Frenchmen Street
Another scene takes place at Dat Dog on Frenchmen Street. Be sure to order the alligator hot dog when you’re there.
New Orleans Streetcar
Throughout the video, the streetcar sets the scene for two dancers and all I have to say is wow.
Blue Nile is a music venue on Frenchmen Street that has some of the best live music in New Orleans. They also serve amazing drinks.
You can find the Lil’ Wayne mural created by Courtney ‘CeAux’ Buckley at 8401 Olive St., right off Carrollton. CeAux shared a photo with Drake on his Instagram page.
This pretty-in-pink, 24-hour establishment is featured with Drake and his friends enjoying some late-night po-boys – a must-stop shop for your po-boy fill.
A hot spot for live music and dancing, it makes perfect sense why Drake would feature Jackson Square in his video as its the ultimate place for visiting in New Orleans.
In the video, you can see lots of folks with go-cups in hand, dancing and performing all along Bourbon Street, which perfectly captures the essence of New Orleans.
Electric Ladyland Tattoo
You can see this Frenchmen Street tattoo shop for a spilt-second in the video.
