Pack it up, because Yara Shahidi says that her career can't get any better than her appearance in Drake's music video for "Nice for What."

"Forget my entire resume. That's all I’m putting on there from now on," Shahidi joked to ET's Courtney Tezeno on Saturday at the black-ish For Your Consideration event.

"Forget that I’ve been on like an Emmy/Golden Globe-nominated show," she continued. "'Nice for What!' I mean, don’t forget that. Please remember that. But, 'Nice for What!'"

Shahidi, who will be attending Harvard in the fall, talked about getting to wear her Harvard hoodie in the video.

"It was very exciting," Shahidi shared. "It was really a collaborative process. The director, Karena Evans, is incredible. So young and so talented. So it was like, she wanted to find me in my element, so she was like, 'What if you have your hoodie on?' I was like, 'great!' Then, I was studying and I was jamming out to the music. It was a great day."

ET also spoke to Shahidi's black-ish co-star Tracee Ellis Ross, who also made a glamorous appearance in the star-studded video. Ross joked that it was great to get to officially get down to Drake since she's done it so much on her own time.

"He called!" she revealed about how her cameo came about. "He called, yeah. It was very fun and very exciting. You know, I’ve made so many of my own Drake videos on Instagram that it was only appropriate that we finally do it with a real director."

Black-ish airs Tuesdays 9/8 Central on ABC.
