Drake 'Nice For What' video

Drake is back with a brand new video that features a lot of familiar faces.

The rapper dropped his 'Nice for What' video on Friday, and it continues to trend at number one on YouTube three days later. 

The video features several stars. Emma Roberts, Tiffany Haddish, Rashida Jones, Issa Rae, Michelle Rodriguez, Tracee Ellis Ross, Olivia Wilde, Yara Shahidi, and Misty Copeland all make an appearance. 

Zoe Saladana, her husband Marco Perego, and their three children also feature. 

Social media users praised the rapper for honouring women in the video. 

"Throughout the song, Drake speaks about female empowerment in the digital age. women always looking to gain a following and live in the light, but that also comes with some resistance and hate — despite what they go through, Drake understands it and appreciates the hustle." one Twitter user wrote.

That's a real one in your reflection
Without a follow, without a mention
You really pipin' up on these ni**as
You gotta, be nice for what, to these ni**as?

The song also features a sample from Lauryn Hill's 1998 single, 'Ex-Factor'.

Here's how social media users reacted to the 31-year-old's "empowering" video:
