"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.
