Big Freedia Had to Contact Drake to Be in the ‘In My Feelings’ Video

Some fans were upset that New Orleans bounce queen Big Freedia didn’t appear in Drake’s “Nice For What” music video, despite the fact that her vocals opened the song. Drake did make it up to Freedia by later including her in his “In My Feelings” video, but she has now revealed that she had to hit him up in order to get the ball rolling.

“I decided to hit him up myself and was like, ‘Why you didn’t let me know you were in New Orleans?'” Freedia told TMZ. “And he was like, ‘I just got here. Why don’t you come through? We’re shooting a video tonight. I want you to get a few cameos.’ So I did that.”

“I had to call my people at midnight to come make me up and do my hair,” Freedia continued. “I made it to the video shoot at about 2:00 a.m. and we hung out until about 6:00 a.m. He didn’t want me to get off the mic. He wanted me to rock the mic and the crowd all night.”

  1. Y'all better look big freedia up! Doing big Things! They using freedia vocals everywhere. He used her on nice for what and in my feelings. Beyoncé used freedia vocals on formation along with messy Mya. He shouted out city girls so shout out big freedia.

  2. He’s sampled Freedia’s music…..TWICE. And only had her in the video because she called HIM….this is why some of you niggas still think a skinny black chick was singing “Everybody Dance Now”.

  3. But Drake is well known for doing things like this. Other artists as well. But I would have told him from the beginning you cannot sample my song unless I am in the video. I guess he thought Drake was going to offer him a cameo after he agreed to clear the sample. O well. Glad Freedia got to shine.

  4. Freeda. That’s the job of your agent/team. They are not hustling hard enough for you, thus you’re missing out from opportunities. Time to level up, again and get your gd bag
