Why We Love Drake's 'Nice For What' Music Video

I'm no professional at interpreting art, but I think it's safe to say Drake's music video to "Nice for What" is a f****n' masterpiece.

Why We Love Drake's 'Nice For What' Music Video

When I first heard "Nice for What" on the radio, I thought it had a pretty good beat to it. I love hip hop music already, but every once and a while, a hit comes out that I appreciate a little more than the rest. Once I saw the music video directed by the talented Karena Evans (who also directed his music video for "God's Plan") coupled with Drake's heart-felt lyrics, "Nice for What" became that for me.

1. It heavily represents women of all ages.

Ageism is a major issue in the music industry, but Drake includes women young and old throughout his music video.

2. It celebrates the college woman.

Hey, our hard work deserves recognition, and Drake finally gave it to us.

3. It recognizes women's hard work overcoming the patriarchy.

And we love Issa Rae's portrayal of the hard-working, cut-throat executive.

4. It celebrates the single mom.

We gotta love and recognize the women pulling double duty.

5. It's representative of the LGBTQ+ community.

Doesn't everyone want this kinda date anyway? Yeah? I thought so.

6. Of course, we love it for all of its black girl magic.

Enough said.

7. It celebrates women doing whatever the hell it is that makes them happy and successful.

We love you, Drake.

8. Finally, we love it for Michelle Rodriguez's meditation in an empty room.

Again, full disclosure- I am by no means a professional interpreter for art and or/music. But something about this scene in particular struck me as very powerful, as if Drake and Karena Evans also wanted to celebrate and recognize the internal accomplishments of all women- not just the external.

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.

America's biggest party schools

These are known for their lively party scenes

America's biggest party schools
Determining which schools are the biggest party schools is often subjective, but a some statistical factors you could use to make a judgement include (1) consumption, (2) drug usage, (3) strong greek life presence, (4) campus police records etc.

When a student at Auburn was recently asked, she explained: "These schools usually have, like, a super vibrant social scene, lots of Greek life (like my amazing sorority, duh!), and tons of exciting events happening all the time. I mean, we're talking about tailgates, themed parties, mixers with fraternities, and just, like, so much fun. But don't get me wrong, we still, like, study and go to class and all that. It's just that at a party school, the social life and having a good time are, like, major priorities for students."
