Drake proved on Friday that he’s still in his bag.
On Thursday, the OVO label head dropped in on Majid Jordan’s Toronto show, where he took a moment to announce that he was releasing a new record the following night, likely off his forthcoming project.
“The reason I’m here tonight is because I’m back in the city finishing my album,” Drake told the crowd. “I’ve got a new single dropping tomorrow night, too, just in case you got some free time.”
Drake made good on his promise, not only releasing the Murda Beatz-produced “Nice For What” on Friday night, but also surprising fans with a gorgeous, cinematic visual, directed by Karena Evans—the woman behind the “God’s Plan” video—and featuring a star-studded cast of strong women. From Evans to Issa Rae to Tiffany Haddish, here's a rundown on who's involved.
