Drake flaunts a $2.2 million diamond chain that appears to have belonged to Pharrell in his new music video
Drake appears to be the new owner of a $2.2 million diamond chain once owned by Pharrell judging by his latest music video.
The Canadian rapper surprised fans on Monday by releasing the visuals for “Jumbotron Shit Poppin'” from his collaborative album with 21 Savage, “Her Loss.”
The video, featuring cameos from Mike Tyson, Lil Baby, and British rapper Central Cee, shows Drake enjoying the high life, partying with women, and flexing his fast cars and expensive jewelry.
Among the pieces of jewelry he showcases is a 14-karat, three-tone pendant chain that features diamond-encrusted icons of Pharrell and his two former N.E.R.D. bandmates, Chad Hugo and Shay Haley.
The item appears to be the exact same one sold by Pharrell to an unknown buyer for $2.2 million on his auction site Joopiter in November, alongside a number of other items from his Jacob & Co. collection.
In the video for “Jumbotron Shit Poppin’,” Drake is also spotted wearing a few other items that appear to have come from Joopiter: a brain pendant chain that sold for $150,000 at the auction, and a dual skateboard pendant that fetched $103,000.
Drake was also spotted wearing the skateboard pendant in the Caribbean last week.
Drake’s representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Despite being two of the biggest names in the music industry, Drake and Pharrell have worked together only once, collaborating on Brent Faiyaz’s Neptunes-produced “Wasting Time” in 2022.
Drake was signed to Birdman’s Cash Money Records until 2019. According to High Snobiety, Pharrell refused to work with Cash Money Records after N.E.R.D. weren’t paid for their work on a song with Birdman in 2002.
