"#PleaseForgiveMe — A Film Inspired by The Album Views. Available now only on @AppleMusic," Drake wrote on Twitter alongside a trailer for the film that features plenty of sex, money and guns.

According to The New York Daily News, Please Forgive Me was filmed in Johannesburg, South Africa, and finds Drake taking part in a get-rich scheme alongside a girlfriend played by model Fanny Neguesha. At one point during the flick, she is offered $1 million in exchange for sex with a mysterious man.
