Just after releasing “Toosie Slide” last week, Drake appears to have more records loaded up in the tank. On Tuesday (April 7), Drizzy previewed unreleased music on OVO Mark’s Instagram Live, including a potential scorcher with New York upstart Fivio Foreign.
“Sosa, Fivi looking like KD and Kyrie / My TD bank is on what? My TD bank is on Kylie,” spews Drake over the drill-trap soundscape. For weeks, Foreign has tantalized fans with talks of his upcoming Drake collaboration. He has already become a contender for rap’s top rookie honors, boasting high-caliber collaborations with Tory Lanez and Rich the Kid. Last month, Foreign dropped his “Big Drip (Remix)” featuring Lil Baby and Quavo.
As for Drake, he continued feeding fans bite-sized previews of more unreleased music, including a new version of the previously leaked “Not Around.” “People keep asking me to play ‘Not Around.’ New version coming on the album… proper version,” he said during the live. Drake also played a snippet of him and Playboi Carti’s collaboration tentatively titled “Pain 1993,” which will likely live on Carti’s sophomore endeavor Whole Lotta Red.
Before signing off, Drizzy briefly spoke about how “Toosie Slide” and how the song was inspired my Michael Jackson’s signature dance move. “I gotta go to work. Shout-out to Toosie because when I first made that song, I was only talking about the moonwalk,” Drake said. “That’s why I was like, ‘left foot up, right foot slide’ but Toosie made the dance to that shit, and it’s poppin’ now. I didn’t know it was going to be a dance song like that but it is what it is. We’re just having fun, getting warmed up. Album’s on the way about to slap head tops off.”
