WATCH: Drake's new music video 'Nice For What' features A LOT of famous ladies

The song itself is a bit of a love letter to all of the strong, independent women around the world.

Drake surprised everyone by doing a mini-Beyonce and dropping new single 'Nice For What' on Friday, as well as an accompanying, all-star music video.


The song is built on a looping, sped-up lyric from Lauryn Hill's 1998 hit ballad 'Ex-Factor', and here Drake has re-purposed it to deliver a few verses on the women that he loves.

As far as we can tell, it is the first single from Drake's as-yet-untitled follow up to 2016's release Views, or 2017's mixtape More Life, or 2018's EP Scary Hours, depending on how strictly you define the word "album".

Along with the song is a very eye-catching video directed by Karena Evans (who also directed the video for Drake's 'God's Plan'), it features the singer in what appears to be roller-skates, zipping around an empty room with lots of fancy lights. Either that or the camera is doing some kind of whip-pan trick that only makes it look like Drake is rollerskating.

Either way, we constantly cut back to a series of very famous faces, all doing random things and looking incredibly cool.


Keep an eye out for the likes of Olivia Wilde, Michelle Rodriguez, Tiffany Haddish, Zoe Saldana, Rashida Jones, Letitia Wright, Emma Roberts and whole lot more.

Check out the fantastic visual below:
