As one of the lead singles on his latest effort, “Nice For What” samples iconic R&B singer Lauryn Hill’s 1998 track “Ex-Factor.” The video of the song goes one step further, celebrating influential women and friends like Issa Rae, Misty Copeland, Zoe Saldana, Tiffany Haddish, Yara Shahidi, Syd, Rashida Jones, Jourdan Dunn, Tracee Ellis Ross, Olivia Wilde, Elizabeth Lejonhjarta, Victoria Lejonhjarta, Letitia Wright, Bria Vinaite, Michelle Rodriguez, and Emma Roberts. But despite being a “celebratory song” for women, it still oozes undertones of misogyny as Drake manages to degrade women by calling them “hoes” multiple times in the song while trying to praise them. Instead, Drake once again comes off as a fake feminist.
