Drake’s “Toosie Slide” is one of the greatest songs in the world right now. However, many people probably did not connect the dots to notice that in the song, the rapper does not teach listeners to do a new dance, she tells them how to do Michael Jackson’s moonwalk!
The rapper explicitly said it was about dancing
The video for Drake’s latest single, named for sensation and social media dancer, Toosie, was to include it as well as dancers Ayo and Teo, but they couldn’t be there due to the social remoteness at coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic environment. Toosie, along with other dancers like SheLovesMeechie, toured with Drake on the Summer Sixteen tour.
Several fans have posted on social media how the “Toosie Slide” choir teaches a dance that can actually be interpreted as the moonwalk, Michael Jackson’s iconic dance. It makes perfect sense because the song also has the phrase “I can dance like Michael Jack-sound”.
While people on social media just realized that the song was about the Moonwalk, Drake actually revealed the details of the song’s design recently on Instagram Live. He appeared on a live stream from OVO Mark.
Drake said, “When I did this song for the first time, I was only talking about the Moonwalk. But Toosie did a dance for that, I didn’t know it was going to be a dance song like that. “
He continued, “We are just having fun warming up. The album is on its way. “
Fans react to revelation
Some fans were totally shocked and surprised that the “Toosie Slide” was about to make the moonwalk. Others, however, acknowledged that the clues were still there.
“I know he has a dance, but he really describes how to walk on the moon on a toosie slide. Do you all know how to walk on the moon? Right foot (heel) up, sliding of the left foot… left foot (heel) up, sliding of the right foot. Plus MJ references. Smart if you ask me, ” tweeted someone.
Someone else tweeted, ” GUYS!!! THE TOOSIE SLIDE INSTRUCTIONS ARE CONCERNING THE MOONWALK. I just f ***** G REALIZED.
It looks like Drake just proved he could make a song specifically for the TikTok challenges and pay tribute to Michael Jackson at the same time.
