Drake is looking to become the next TikTok viral sensation with the release of his latest single and music video for “Toosie Slide.” The visual, which reflects the social impact of the COVID-19 pandemic (coronavirus), kicks off by showing a shot of Toronto’s empty streets. The clip then transitions to Drake in an empty house, rocking a mask and gloves as he practices social distancing.
Drake originally teased his new single with a clip of Atlanta dancer Toosie performing the song’s instructed moves (“It go right foot up, left foot slide/Left foot up, right foot slide”).
‘Toosie Slide’ follows a host of recent releases from Drake including “When to Say When,” “Chicago Freestyle,” and the Future collaboration “Life Is Good.”
Drake’s last studio album was 2018’s Scorpion. In 2019, he dropped Care Package, a compilation of tracks originally released between 2010 and 2016.
