Drake may still be riding the success of his fifth studio album, Scorpion, but he just flipped the switch to his next project by dropping his latest single, “Toosie Slide.”

The Canadian rapper announced he was releasing the song after a teaser went around on TikTok, the social media app that has launched hip-hop songs like Drake’s “Nonstop” and Roddy Rich’s “The Box” into the stratosphere. Drake recently commented on an Instagram post with kids dancing to a snippet of the song, saying, “I’mma drop soon since ya’ll got it going insane.” He then confirmed the drop with his own post, writing “THURSDAY @ MIDNIGHT.”

The rapper also released a quarantine-themed music video for the song Thursday. It opens on shots of deserted streets and finds a responsibly masked Drake doing the aforementioned TikTok dance alone, with only his various trophies, Kobe jerseys, giant pieces of art, crazy light fixtures, fireworks shows, and a mysterious, lone social-distancing partner to keep him company.

Drake, who has been leaving breadcrumbs for his fans like linking up with Future again for the track “Life Is Good,” also made headlines when he posted an Instagram photo with his son Adonis for the first time. “What is most important for you right now is to connect to your own inner light,” he wrote.

Trust that you have all of the power within to make this happen, and in order to do that connect to the people and things that bring you a lot of joy. When the mind starts to move into overthinking or fear, shift your attention right away to something bright.

We are powerful manifestors , so once you make the choice in the moment to shift your awareness to something good, it will show you in your reality. Be conscious, especially right now of fears coming in from others, and recognize that not everything should be held by you. Laughter is your best medicine, but tears can also be a powerful release. Let go of any judgment you may have around that. Remember that you are never alone, and if you need to be reminded of that ask for support and it will show up.

I love and miss my beautiful family and friends and I can’t wait for the joyful day when we are all able to reunite. Until then please keep your lights on. 🤍

Drake was also recently featured on Lil Yachty’s new song “Oprah’s Bank Account,” in addition to pushing out two more songs of his own, “When To Say When” and “Chicago Freestyle” — although none compare at the bop level of “Toosie Slide.”
