Drake has released the video for 'Take Care' featuring his rumoured ex-girlfriend Rihanna, who appears on the track.

The video hit the web last night (April 6) and sees the couple embracing each other in the black and white shot footage, directed by Yoann Lemoine – who has Katy Perry's 'Teenage Dream' and Mystery Jet's 'Dreaming Of Another World' in his list of directing credits.

Speaking about the video, which you can see by scrolling down the page and clicking, Lemoine told MTV that the pair "fit together pretty well, so it was just easy".

He added: "There's a lot of space in the video and I wanted the visuals to pay tribute to that. It pays tribute to nature. When I listened to the track, I was seeing a landscape ... involving animals and massive landscapes."

The track, a cover of Gil Scott-Heron's 'I'll Take Care Of You', was produced by Jamie XX. It is the fourth single to be taken from Drake's second album 'Take Care'.

Last month, Drake admitted that he uses drugs to cope with the pressure of fame. In an interview with the Guardian , he revealed that he occasional turned to substances to loosen up.

"You get artists in this position who go crazy and don't know how to handle it," he said. "There are people who have killed themselves. There's the overwhelming stress, how tired you are, the weight on your shoulders of going out there and giving 18,000 people entertainment… it's a lot of pressure."

Meanwhile, Drake will be one of the headliner acts at this summer's Wireless Festival. The rapper will headline the festival's second night (July 7). He joins Rihanna as a headliner, with the 'Talk That Talk' singer set to close the festival on the following night (July 8). Deadmau5 will headline the event's opening day (July 6).
