Since Aubrey hopped off that wheelchair and started rapping with Wayne, it’s been continuously great music rolling in from OVO Sounds to the speakers of everyone we come in contact with. Drake went from Take Care, to dropping a hit diss song, to showing his Caribbean side, dating Rihanna, and not getting a text back from J Lo. In the mist of all this, he has created club banger, after anthem, after pregame sounds. This time, Drake has stolen the hearts of all women with making a song specifically for us. Nice For What pays homage to all the hard working women. In this song he drizzles self love, hard work, and post break up vibes with a dab of Lauryn Hill. He did all of that while providing us with a New Orleans bounce. Hashtag: Talent. Here are the lyrics that make us go “YAAAAAS, DRAKE KNOWS!”
Had a man last year,
life goes on.
Haven’t let that thing loose,
girl, in so long
Break ups have us hurt, child. Drake told us to get over and get it poppin’
I’ve been peepin’ what you bringin’ to the table
Workin’ hard, girl, everything paid for
First, last phone bill, car note, cable
This is not the first time Drake has told us that our hustle has gone unnoticed.
With your phone out, gotta hit them angles
With your phone out, snappin’ like you Fabo
The flex does not come easy and he knows that. From the selfie to the pointed toe move we do.
That’s a real one in your reflection
Without a follow, without a mention
No matter what, he’s showing us that the genuine women are winning. The ones that do not need the internet to make them feel good.
You really pipin’ up on these niggas
You gotta, be nice for what, to these niggas?
When you’re moving towards your highest potential, the man is the last thing you need, especially one that brings you down. Drake says we don’t have to be nice. But we already knew that.
