Noted Fortnite-streamer Drake has taken a break from gaming for a hot second to release "Nice For What," a new Lauryn Hill-sampling single. The song, and its accompanying video, was released tonight after being announced at a Majid Jordan show in Toronto earlier this week. It's unknown as to whether "Nice For What" is from an album, but Drake did note that he was back in Toronto to finish his new record. The track is built around a sample from Lauryn Hill's "Ex Factor," which was also recently sampled by Cardi B for her Invasion of Privacy cut "Be Careful." All three songs are excellent. Check out the video for "Nice For What," starring Tiffany Haddish, Syd, Rashida Jones, Olivia Wilde and more below:

Earlier this year, Drake released his Scary Hours EP, which featured two new songs, "God's Plan" and "Diplomatic Immunity." "God's Plan" in particular has seen a level of success that goes beyond Drake-tier and into Mariah territory: it's currently in its tenth week at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Maybe "Nice For What" will be the track to dethrone it!
