Here come the brides!

Hours after the Drake surprised fans with the news he would be dropping his seventh studio album Honestly, Nevermind at midnight Friday, he also released an elaborate music video related to the new record.

The video for "Falling Back", the second song on the 14-track album, shows the 35-year-old rapper getting ready for his wedding day with pal Tristan Thompson, who appears to act as his best man.

The video begins with both men clad in tuxes, the 31-year-old NBA player giving Drake a pep talk before he walks down the aisle.

"You only get married once," Thompson tells his friend as he straightens out his bowtie.

The camera then pans to the glamorous ceremony, which includes a rabbi officiating the ritual between Drake and his 23 brides.

"Do you commit yourself to being a good wife, according to our values and traditions?" the rabbi asks, as the women, in sync, said "I do."

Drake then continues to marry each woman as "Falling Back" begins to play, completing a secret handshake with each of his brides.

"I think he's really taking these ones seriously," Drake's mom Sandi Graham leans over and tells a guest with a smile.

The video also includes the words "Free YSL," likely referencing rappers Gunna and Young Thug, who are currently being jailed over racketeering charges allegedly connected to the YSL group.

The nine and a half minute video takes viewers through the epic celebration, including a wedding singer performing a slower rendition of Drake's hit song "Best I Ever Had."
