Justin Bieber makes cameo in Drake's new music video and people are losing it

Drake just dropped the music video for his new hit, Popstar, in collaboration with DJ Khaled, and the video features a familiar Canadian: Justin Bieber.

The eight-minute clip begins with DJ Khaled expressing his frustration to Drake over the phone that he can't get into Canada to shoot the video with the ongoing border closure.

"Drake, I know the border's closed," he says. "I know they won't let me in the country. What do you want me to do?"

Drake solution? Call in his Canadian pal Bieber.

The video then moves to a champagne-wielding Bieber rolling out of bed and swaggering through his mansion as an epic party rages in the background.

Other things to look out for: expensive blue cars, Scooter Braun, lobster on a silver platter, leather pants.

Anyway, in a plot-twist ending, it turns out that the whole party was just a dream; Bieber wakes up in bed beside his wife, Hailey Bieber, and tells her that he loves her.

Later, during a wholesome walk with their dog, Bieber gets a phone call (yes, his ringtone is Baby — his 2010 hit) from none other than Drake. Cue the dramatic zoom in.

Naturally, fans are loving Bieber's unexpected appearance in the Popstar music video.

"The Popstar video just made me a belieber all ova again," one person wrote.

"Popstar music video was fantastic and the best Justin Bieber has ever looked," another person wrote. "There I said it."

This isn't the first time that the pair have collaborated, either; Canada's favourite rapper made an appearance in Bieber's 2010 music video for his song "Baby."

Whether you're a Bieber fan or not, it's pretty exciting to see two of our country's most famous musicians collaborating.

Nothing like some Canadian talent, eh?
