Drake has another one on his hands with his new single “Toosie Slide” after a snippet of the song became a viral hit on TikTok. Earlier this week, he announced the full version of the song would arrive at midnight EST on Friday (April 3). He shared a photo of the single art and a caption that read simply, “THURSDAY @ MIDNIGHT @toosie @ozmusique.”
This past Saturday, dancers named Toosie, Hiii Key, Ayo and Teo shared a snippet of the track along with their dance moves to accompany it. In an interview, Toosie revealed that Drake had sent them the song snippet and asked for their help in creating a dance that would garner TikTok fame.
“Drake hit me up and was like, ‘Yo, I need your help,’” Toosie said. “So he sends the record. It was just an idea at the time. It was just the hook and a verse. I came up with this dance. [Drake said,] ‘What you think? You think you can come up with a dance for this song that I made?’… Luckily, I’m at Ayo and Teo’s house with Hii Key and all of us. We all chilling. We came up with it pretty fast. We just all pieced it together. We all contributed.”
