In case you haven’t noticed, Drake is pretty amazing. From stopping a dude from groping girls at one of his concerts to donating the entire budget for his “God’s Plan” music video, he sets the bar pretty damn high.

Over the weekend, the Canadian rapper released his latest single, “Nice For What.” The track, which represents for the ladies, features a sample from Lauryn Hill’s “Ex-Factor” and was accompanied by a short-film directed by Karena Evans.

Evans, who’s only 22-years-old also directed Drizzy’s “God’s Plan” visual and recently became the first woman to ever to receive Canada’s Lipsett Award for her “innovative and unique approach to music video art.”

However, the women empowerment doesn’t stop there. “Nice For What” celebrates hardworking women as Drake shows his appreciation for their hustle with lyrics like:

“You’ve been inside, know you like to lay low
I’ve been peepin’ what you bringin’ to the table
Workin’ hard, girl, everything paid for
First, last phone bill, car note, cable.”

To top it off, “Nice For What” also features an entire entourage of powerful women. From American Ballet Theater principal dancer Misty Copeland to Issa Rae, star and co-creator of HBO’s Insecure, comedian, Tiffany Haddish and Grown-ish actress, Yara Shahiri, plus many, many more.

Honestly, we’re so here for “Nice For What” because at the end of the day, anything with so many kickass women is bound to be phenomenal.

Am I right or am I right?

Thank you, Drake, for always celebrating women in the most unique way!
