Watch Lil Wayne’s ‘How to Love’ Video

Lil Wayne's "How to Love" video is part music video, part really sad short movie (with redeeming twist ending!), part Blue Valentine–style post-non-abortion story, and part social commentary about cycles of sexual abuse and drug addiction. It's like Random Family got turned into a slightly cheesy music video. Back in May, Lil Wayne's producer for this song, Detail, said that the video would land Weezy a variety of awards. "After he showed me the video concept, it's like, 'Yo, dude, we're gonna be at the Country Awards with this record,'" Detail told MTV. "We gonna be sitting next to Taylor Swift." We'll see!
