AceShowbiz - Drake is a man of his word. After announcing at his Toronto show that he would be releasing a new single, he really keeps his promise by debuting a new single entitled "Nice for What" on April 6, just a day after the announcement. The release of the song was accompanied with a star-studded music video.
Directed by Karena Evans, the visuals stars Rashida Jones, Tiffany Haddish, Tracee Ellis Ross, Olivia Wilde, Misty Copeland, Issa Rae, Emma Roberts and Zoe Saldana. The beautiful women are seen jamming to the song while doing their own things.
Drake himself barely appears in the clip. He can only be seen roaming around an empty basement while spitting his lines. "That's a real one, in your reflection/ Without a follow, without a mention/ You rarely pipin' up on these n****s," he raps. "You gotta be nice for what these n****s/ I understand, you gotta hunnid bands."
Following the release of the music video, Drake was showered with praises because he tapped many "strong, powerful, beautiful" women to star in the visuals. "Nice for what by Drake is my new faaave, I love it! For all them independent women out there," one fan wrote. Another commented, "drake's video was basically just women. I can't lose this man more than I already do, it's not possible."
One other called the rapper "legendary s**t," adding, "he has to be the luckiest man on earth to be able to get all of those powerful women to be apart of his video." Another fan called him a "genius" as he "celebrated the beauty of black women in a beautiful way in 'nice for what'."
"Nice for What" samples "Ex Factor", one of the most popular tracks from the 1999 classic "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill". The song will likely be included in his next album, which is rumored to be released this year.
