After revealing plans to drop a new single during a recent appearance at Majid Jordan‘s latest show in Toronto, Drake recently abruptly dropped “Nice for What” with an accompanying music video.

Shorty after dropping the track on Apple Music, the 6 God unveiled a cinematic visual for the Murda Beatz-produced track which was teased last month. The new bouncy track samples Lauryn Hill‘s “Ex-Factor” off of her 1998 album, The Miseducaton of Lauryn Hill and serves as an homage to strong women around the world.

For the music video, Drizzy recruited a list of female stars that embody the strong feminine attitude he raps about on the track. The beautiful cast includes the likes of Olivia Wilde, Misty Copeland, Issa Rae, Rashida Jones, Jourdan Dunn, Tracee Ellis Ross, Tiffany Haddish, Yara Shahidi, Zoe Saldana, Elizabeth Lejonhjarta, Victoria Lejonhjarta, Letitia Wright, Bria Vinaite, Emma Roberts, Syd and Michelle Rodriguez. Scenes of the above mention ladies dominate the visual with cuts brief cuts of Drake vibing out to his track laced in for creative interjection effect.

Check out the music video for Drake’s new “Nice for What” track above and let us know what you think.
