Earlier this week, Drake surprised the world by releasing his 7th studio album Honestly Nevermind. Immediately following the release, fans began to go deep on analysing and understanding the meaning of his songs. One of the most analysed song was Falling Back, but now, it's time to look at another song that explains a lot about Drake and his life: Sticky.

The lyrics of "Nice for What" are an ode to women around the world who are working hard to make it big and get their dreams come true. The song is directed by Karena Evans and features a plethora of bold black women.

“Nice for What” is the third single released by Drake this year. It debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in April, beating out his own "God's Plan" that had spent 11 weeks at the top.

In the song, Drake raps about the hustles women have to go through in order to become successful. He says that these women don't steal, kill or cheat and he has utmost respect for them.

Drake's lyrical prowess is clear to see in this track and the video is a celebration of women in all walks of life. The music video is packed with some of the best female celebrities in the industry including Olivia Wilde, Misty Copeland and Issa Rae, among others.

The track also has a very interesting theme and it's definitely an upbeat number that could stay on the top of the charts for a while. It's not as heavy as some of the other tracks on Honestly Nevermind but it's still a great anthem that deserves a place in the playlist.
