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.”
