Since its release, the clip has garnered more than three million views.

I had no idea Drake was going to be there, Pia told MTV News. Were in the middle of the meal and Kanye just, like, calls me out and says Drake, Pias a singer. It was really nerve-wracking because Kim and Khloe (Kardashian) were sitting across from me videotaping. I never thought Id be able to sing Drake his song, so that was something Ill remember forever.
