Once again, Drake has got us in our feelings. As we have our heads buried in our phones at all hours trying to learn TikTok's new dance crazes, Drake's new song "Toosie Slide" just gave us our task of the day. The rapper released the smooth song on Friday, blessing our playlists and our footwork with some much-needed tunes, and we have no doubt that this is about to be a popular dance craze based on the lyrics alone.
In the chorus, Drake sings, "It go right foot up, left foot, slide. Left foot up, right foot, slide. Basically I'm saying either way we 'bout to slide," as he instructs our choreography like a high-school cheer coach. Aside from the dance, the best thing to come out of this video is undoubtedly the visuals of Drake's mind-blowing new Toronto mansion, which could easily pass for a 5-star hotel.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Toosie, the dancer who helped Drake come up with the moves, said that he was initially supposed to be in the music video for the song, but of course that changed with social distancing. Drake tapped Toosie and his fellow dancers to come up with the choreography, which they sent to him (seen below). "Drake hit me up and was like, 'Yo, I need your help,'" he told the publication, adding that the rapper sent him a few verses. "So I sit down, listen to it. Luckily, I'm at Ayo and Teo's house with Hiii Key and all of us. We all chilling. We came up with it pretty fast. We just all pieced it together. We all contributed."
And just like that, the "Toosie Slide" was born! Check out Drake's music video above and start practicing the moves yourself . . . It go right foot up, left foot, slide. Left foot up, right foot, slide.
