Do Magic initiate need spell slots? [duplicate]


I’m having a hard time understanding how the magic initiate talent interacts, considering drow magic is’t require spell slots:

Can you cast a racial spell if you do not have access to the spell slot required?

Drow Magic.

You know the dancing lights cantrip. When you reach 3rd level, you can cast the faerie fire spell once per day. W hen you reach 5th level, you can also cast the darkness spell once per day. Charisma is your spellcasting ability for these spells.

the same is applied for Magic Initiate?

Magic Initiate.

Choose a class: bard, cleric, druid, sorcerer, warlock, or wizard. You learn two cantrips of your choice from that class’s spell list. In addition, choose one 1st-level spell from that same list. You learn that spell and can cast it at its lowest level. Once you cast it, you must finish a long rest before you can cast it again. Your spellcasting ability for these spells depends on the class you chose: Charisma for bard, sorcerer, or warlock; W isdom for cleric or druid: or Intelligence for wizard.
