Drake Previews Unreleased Playboi Carti and Fivio Foreign Collaborations
Hot off the release of “Toosie Slide,” Drake is breaking fans off with more music.
The 6 God took over OVO Mark’s Instagram Live in the early hours of Tuesday morning to preview unreleased music ahead of his upcoming album, including collaborations with Playboi Carti and Fivio Foreign.
On his JB Made It-produced track with Fivio, Drake shouts out Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and Kylie Jenner over a drill-inspired instrumental. “Sosa, Fivi looking like KD and Kyrie / My TD Bank is on what? My TD Bank is on Kylie,” he boasts.
He kept the heat coming with another track potentially titled “Rollin’.” “Yeah we rollin’, yeah we rollin’ / Deep pockets on a ni**a I can’t find my phone in,” raps Drake.
He also addressed the previously leaked “Not Around” and confirmed that the song will appear on his upcoming album. “People keep asking me to play ‘Not Around.’ Don’t worry, a new version is coming on the album…proper version,” he said.
The comments lit up when Champagne Papi teased his Playboi Carti collaboration “Pain 1993,” which is expected to appear on Carti’s long-awaited album Whole Lotta Red. “Used to be an anti-social ni**a, now I’m making friends,” raps Drizzy. “Tell Carti drop this,” he told fans.
During the surprise livestream, he also revealed the inspiration behind his viral hit “Toosie Slide.” “Shout out to Toosie ’cause when I first made that song, I was only talking about a moonwalk,” explained Drake. “That’s why I was like, ‘left foot up, right foot slide,’ but Toosie made the dance to that shit, so it’s poppin’ now. I didn’t know it was gonna be a dance song like that but it is what it is. We’re just having fun, getting warmed up.”
Before heading back to the studio, he assured fans that the follow-up to Scorpion is coming soon. “Album’s on the way, ’bout to slap head tops off,” he said.
