Watch: Drake Celebrates Women, Samples Lauryn Hill in “Nice For What” Video

By

Drake keeps winning!

The OVO boss shut the internet down once again on Friday night with the release of his infectious new single “Nice For What,” which samples Lauryn Hill’s classic song “Ex Factor.” The bounce heavy track is a collaborative production by Murda Beatz, Blaqnmild, Corey Litwin, and Noah “40” Shebib. It stands out on its own as another soon-to-be massive hit for the 6 God, but it’s the track’s official music video which really deserves all your attention.

The star-studded video, directed by Karena Evans, features cinematic shots and portraits of beautiful women in Hollywood and entertainment including Misty Copeland, Issa Rae, Rashida Jones, Tracee Ellis Ross, Yara Shahidi, Zoe Saldana, Tiffany Haddish, Syd and more.

The Canadian superstar spits rapid fire verses filled with affirmations of empowerment. “That’s a real one in your reflection,” he raps. “Without a follow, without a mention / You rarely pipin’ up on these n***as / You gotta be nice for what to these n***as?”

“Nice For What” is the latest single off Drake’s forthcoming album, his follow-up to 2017’s More Life. His last release, “God’s Plan” is still dominating the charts, remaining at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 10 consecutive weeks.
