Drake, "Toosie Slide"

Drake returned Friday (April 3) with his latest single in the dance-heavy "Toosie Slide." The Oz-produced record is sure to dominate apps like TikTok, with everyone quarantined inside, and should easily land Drizzy his 209th Billboard Hot 100 entry, after breaking the record in March.

The 6 God also dropped off a visual to go alongside "Toosie Slide," which saw a bundled-up Drake take viewers on a tour of his jaw-dropping $100 million Toronto estate while hitting the viral jig himself.

From his marble kitchen to the state-of-the-art indoor pool and his five-star hotel lobby-like hallways, some probably came away with a few design ideas to incorporate into their own homes.

In case you missed a few of the intricacies, here are seven things we peeped inside Drake's lavish crib below.

Kobe Bryant jerseys 

Like all basketball fans, Drake was heartbroken at the tragic loss of Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gigi after a fatal January helicopter crash. Drizzy honors the Black Mamba by laying out both his No. 24 and No. 8 Lakers jerseys on the table in the clip. We even get to see a little bit of Drake's jersey collection, which includes Darius Miles from his Clipper days.

Andy Warhol Mao Zedong painting 

In the same room where the Kobe jerseys are laid out, Drake shows off one of the many paintings decorating his estate's interior. Here, we find Andy Warhol's Mao 94 painting. The original portrait is a caricature of the 20th-century communist general made following 1972's landmark visit to China by President Richard Nixon.

2001 Raf Simons "Riot Riot Riot Camo Bomber"

Another subliminal shot at Yeezy's head? Drake is ready for Toronto's frigid winter while rocking gloves, a face mask, a hoodie and the super rare F/W 2001 Raf Simons Riot Riot Riot Camo Bomber. For context, the jacket sold on Grailed for $47,000 in 2018. The bomber was a staple in West's closet during 2014-15.

Kaws Companions

Drake's foyer is unlike any other. Guests are greeted on both sides by a pair of 4-foot KAWS Dissected Companion figures cornering the room, which could cost interested buyers about $100,000. Theo Skudra's editing even gives the dolls a blinking effect. Look a bit closer and you'll find a stencil courtesy of Banksy, who Drake has purchased art pieces from in the past.

Nike contract

Checks over stripes. Shortly after the two-minute mark, the camera pans to a Nike box and what looks to be a contract ready to be signed on Drake's dining-room table. Could the 6 God be hinting at another collaboration coming in the near future?

Snoop Dogg, Nas & Tupac portraits

Drake's blue-lit room is sure to get the creative juices flowing when you look around and see all the faces of greatness filling it. Drizzy pays homage to a few legends with framed photos of a young Snoop Dogg, Nas and Tupac from his days starring in Juice.

Murakami piano cover

Can't you see Drake kicking back and playing his luxurious piano with a glass of wine and some fine company as snow falls in the 6? The video finds Drizzy walking by his Bösendorfer piano, which has a violet cover inscribed with skulls designed by the Kanye West-adjacent Murakami. Complex points out that similar prints "run in the thousands" of dollars.
