Every Famous Face In Drake’s “Nice For What” Video: A Visual Guide

Drake threw a dance party for basically every famous woman in Hollywood.


Leave it to Drake to throw a dance party for all of our favorite women in Hollywood. In his latest blockbuster video following the $1 million giveaway in “God’s Plan,” “Nice For What,” directed by Karena Evans, the rapper features the actresses and models (oh, and a prima ballerina) of our slumber party dreams all dancing, studying, at one point levitating, and generally ruling the world.

Check out Insecure’s Issa Rae telling old white men exactly what’s up in a business meeting; Harvard-bound Yara Shahidi in her college sweatshirt hard at work; and suited up Tiffany Haddish smoking a cigar in a way that can only be described as boss. Meanwhile, Rashida Jones is glam in a car; Zoe Saldana is playing with adorable kids; Emma Roberts is taking an indoor dip; and Tracee Ellis Ross is truly living her best life just doing whatever she’s doing in a field. In Drake’s world, women are beautiful but not objectified, and empowered to be more than one-note. They’re having fun and enjoying their freedom in every kind of setting, and then, you know, occasionally Drake shows up. To jog in place. So, ideal video! Here’s a guide to every famous face (besides Drake’s) that you’ll see in “Nice For What,” which is, pardon the wordplay, very nice for us.
