Jack Harlow drops 'Churchill Downs' video. Here's all the Louisville references we spotted
Louisville native and Grammy Award-nominated rapper Jack Harlow dropped his "Churchill Downs" music video Wednesday afternoon, and it's full of Louisville references.
Harlow was on site at the 2022 Kentucky Derby at the iconic racetrack earlier this year shooting the music video for the new song. Rap superstar Drake, who is featured on the track, joined Harlow in the infield for part of the shoot, the Courier Journal previously reported.
The song is on Harlow's second studio album, "Come Home The Kids Miss You," which was released May 7 and boasts several big-name features, including Lil Wayne, Pharrell and Justin Timberlake.
"It's a beautiful moment," Harlow told reporters on the Kentucky Derby red carpet. "Kentucky will never be the same."
Churchill Downs isn't the only Louisville site shown in Harlow's new song. Louisville Slugger Museum also get shoutouts, along with various scenes for the Kentucky Derby Festival's Thunder Over Louisville held in mid-April.
