In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, Drake recorded and released a brand new song called Toosie Slide.

The song was released Friday alongside a breathtaking music video that doubles as a tour of the Canadian rapper’s mansion in Toronto.

The five-minute short begins with shots of some of Toronto’s busiest areas, including the Gardiner Expressway, Queen Street West and University Avenue – all empty due to the threat surrounding COVID-19.

Director, editor and director of photography Theo Skudra spends most of the video after God’s plan hit-maker around his house while presenting many of his personal belongings, including an abundance of music prizes, a flashy grand piano and a gigantic indoor pool.

Judging by Drake’s attire, as well as by the subtle logos scattered throughout the video, it almost seems Toosie Slide was sponsored by Nike.

He also revealed that the 33-year-old is a big fan of Snoop Dogg when a framed photo of the rapper is shown, among others.
