Canadian rap artist Drake has just released his latest song, Nice For What, featuring none other than Battersea Power Station.

Check out glimpses of London-wide views from Circus West throughout the video and then watch beyond the end credits for full-on shots of a red bomber jacketed extra standing on scaffolding currently at the base of the towers.

The video was shot just before Easter weekend and although filming was discreet, residents in the new development at Circus West spotted film crews and security.

Aubrey Drake Graham, who is quite simply known as Drake, is one of the world's top rap artists. He has an Instagram following of 41.2 million and although Nice For What was only released two days ago it's already been viewed nearly 9 million times.

Born in Toronto, Canada 31 years ago, Drake started out as an actor on the teen drama Degrassi: The Next Generation but soon realised he was a musician at heart. He released his debut studio album Thank Me Later in 2010 and it debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200. He holds several Billboard chart records and is quoted as amassing a net worth of US$100 million with titles such as God's Plan, Hotline Bling, One Dance and Take Care, which features Rihanna who he has been rumoured to have dated.

Nice For What features cameos from uber cool actresses Olivia Wilde, Issa Rae, Tiffany Haddish, Rashida Jones and Zoe Saldana. Shot by director Karena Evans and featuring plenty of spicy language, Drake's latest offering has been cited as an homage to women and continuing Drake's determination to use his platform for good.
