Drake and DJ Khaled made history together with "Popstar" and "Greece" in late July: The pair of tracks gave the former his 39th and 40th placements in the top 10 of the Hot 100, more than any other artist.

Becoming the top "Popstar" on the charts calls for a celebration, but Drizzy is busy putting the finishing touches on his next album, Certified Lover Boy. So, he called in a favor from a fellow Canadian who knows a thing or two about the limelight: Justin Bieber.

Drake knows that you can't talk about pop stardom without mentioning the Biebs, as he shouts him out during the second verse. "Crown in my hand and I'm really playin' keep-away / S*** don't even usually get this big without a Bieber face," he raps.

He also let JB know, "I owe u you one," via Instagram. (Speaking of flexing for the 'Gram, The Boy celebrated 1 billion Spotify streams on "In My Feelings" by eating spaghetti off his plaque.)

Bieber brings a couple of friendly faces along for the ride as well. First, his manager Scooter Braun hits a slight dance move as Drake claims some people might think Braun is his manager considering his success.

Later, Biebs' wife Hailey Bieber hangs with her hubby in bed before taking their dog for a walk. Won't spoil the surprise ending, though. 

All of this star power and a funny cameo from Drake stressing over Khaled's neediness helped the video trend at #1 on YouTube for most of the weekend while tallying over 21 million views.
