Drake has confirmed his new single ‘Toosie Slide’ is dropping this week. The track was announced on the rapper’s Instagram page last night, 30 March, and is due to drop on Thursday, 2 April, at midnight.
‘Toosie Slide’ has already inspired a viral dance on TikTok after a video clip of Atlanta dancer Toosie pulling some moves to the song appeared on social media. Drake later confirmed the track in the video was his next single.
The track was produced by Zurich producer OZ, who also shared the artwork for the release on his Instagram page. “Another anthem brought to you by Drake, produced by Me,” he captioned the post.
‘Toosie Slide’ is expected to feature on Drake’s upcoming album, of which few details are known. Last year, the star said he was finishing the record “so we can turn up in 2020”.
“I’m a gonna go back to the crib and try to finish this album up so we can turn up in 2020,” he added when appearing alongside DaBaby for a surprise appearance at a recent Toronto show.
The superstar rapper has already released two songs this month – ‘When To Say When’ and ‘Chicago Freestyle’ – as well as appearing on Lil Yachty’s ‘Oprah’s Bank Account’. The latter song arrived with an epic, comical video that stars all three artists.
The Grammy-nominated rapper, who teamed up with Director X (‘Hotline Bling’), not only plays the legendary talk-show host (known as “Boprah” in the nine-minute video) but also conceptualised and wrote the video’s sketches. The new track was produced by long-time collaborator EarlOnTheBeat, and precedes Lil Yachty’s anticipated fourth studio album, Lil Boat 3, due out later this spring.
This collaboration isn’t the first between Lil Yachty and Drake. At the start of the year, Yachty appeared in the music video for Future’s hit song, ‘Life Is Good’, which featured Drake. The sought-after young rapper has also joined forces with the likes of Cardi B and Offset, Calvin Harris, Kehlani and Chance the Rapper.
