For all the Drake fans, stands and even the proud and secret haters, the new release of “Nice for What” by Drake has caused an uproar. However you may feel about Drake, you can not deny that this track is an automatic hit. Sampling the famous Lauryn Hill’s “X Factor”, you’ll instantly feel nostalgic. The video is flawlessly executed with the help of Karena Evans and features prestigious stars. You'll see Tiffany Haddish, Yara Shahidi, Issa Rae, Tracee Ellis Ross and Letitia Wright, Syd, Zoe Saldana, Victoria and Elizabeth Lejonhjarta, Rashida Jones, Jourdan Dunn, Bria Vinaite, Emma Roberts and Misty Copeland. Ladies, this one's for you!
The visual brings a brand new dynamic to the song and super-charges the narrative of women empowerment by highlighting the multidimensional aspects of women. That went over your head? Let me explain. With frames of Issa Rae sitting at the head of a board table, Yara Shahidi studying in a library, Misty Copeland sensually hitting a ballet number and Zoe Saldana playing with her kids, the notion that women can literally do and be anything is prevalent. Yes, women are complex but our complexity makes us that much more powerful and mystic. I’d like to think Drake made this work of art to have women across the world become unapologetic in their strength, confidence, brilliance, grace, style, and resilience if they aren’t already.
