When Canadian rapper Drake announced on Thursday night that he had a single dropping the next day, we were automatically prepared for some heat! In preparation for his new album (release date coming soon???!), Drake has dropped 3 singles - "God's Plan", "Diplomatic Unity", and his newest hit, "Nice For What". With all three singles, Drake has unsurprisingly kept his handle on the rap game. His unique ability to test the waters of rap, experiment with different sounds, and provide the best f***ing Instagram captions is unmatched.

'Nice For What' truly embodies the New Orleans rap game, with elements of bounce and an assist from NOLA OG Big Freedia, who opens the track saying, " I wanna know who motherf***ing representing in here tonight," and Drake goes on to add, "Louisiana shit!" As if the song couldn't get any funkier, Champagne Papi is sampling Lauryn Hill's "X Factor". The song is surely to be a summer anthem.

As he never fails to do, Drake enlists a new Instagram caption that will undoubtedly be used by everyone on the Gram, 

That’s a real one in your reflection
Without a follow, without a mention
You really pipin’ up on these niggas
You gotta, be nice for what, to these niggas?
I understand
— Drake, 'Nice For What'

 The song is also joined by a star-studded video that features some of your fave celebrity women, like Issa Rae, Tiffany Haddish, Tracee Ellis Ross, Yara Shahidi, and more! Watch the video blow.

Between this new track and Cardi B's debut album, women everywhere are somewhere with poppin' Instagram captions and an awareness that they don't need these men. Drake uplifts femininity with "Nice for What", celebrating the diversity of all women.

Once again, Drake easily dominates.
