The coronavirus has people all over the world at home in quarantine. But while everyone else is doing puzzles and baking bread, Drake is out here releasing music videos.
While following all the safety rules — wearing a mask, gloves, and remaining 6 feet apart from the cameraperson — the 33-year-old rapper filmed his newest music video, "Toosie Slide," from his Toronto mansion.
And though the song is catchy as all get out, I'm a Nosy Nancy and focused my attention on the rare inside look into his home. Here are some of the things that I noticed:
First, the video opens with shots of an eerily* quiet night in Toronto...
...proving that at least ~some~ people can follow directions.
Anyway, we get to Drake's place and the first thing we see is a trophy room.
He's got Grammys, MTV Awards, and a ton of other awards that I couldn't count, 'cause ya know, he's Drake.
Then we see a desk with a few Kobe jerseys on display. I wonder if this is his version of "The Chair."
If that one art history class I took in college was any help, I'm pretty sure that's an Andy Warhol Mao painting on the back wall.
Then we come to the foyer, which is basically the size of my entire apartment.
It's got Thing 1 and Thing 2, which are actually Kaws sculptures, guarding the entryway.
There's a spiky chandelier that looks fun.
Then he comes into his living room (one of many, I'm sure) and there's a bar of some sort with a TV, and more fancy things on display.
There's this cool, funky piano and plenty of seating surrounding it for an impromptu at-home concert.
Next, we come into the kitchen, which is a marble heaven. There's tonssssss of seating, and I instantly want to know how many dinner parties Drake hosts.
A MARBLE HEAVEN.
He moves on to another room, and along the way we spot some more art on the walls, this time of some famous artists. I'm preeeeetty sure these two are Prince and Snoop.
Oh, and I'd be remiss if I didn't mention this hallway that is so long and so big, it just really shows the scale of this place.
Speaking of scale, we get a glimpse out his window and I was like, "Oh! Great view of the city there." Also, peep the Tupac portrait.
But, now I think he's able to just see the other wing of the house?!?!?!
Anyway, back to the Blue Room. There are a few of his past album covers framed on the walls, like the one for Nothing Was the Same.
And I spy with my little eye, some more artist appreciation...this time, I think it's Diddy?
Outside of that room, which I guess was a lounge(???), there's this fancy statue night light thing. I don't know what it is exactly, but that's what it looks like!!
We see the indoor pool (I'm sure there's an outdoor one too), bordered with purple lights. And, maybe there's a skylight? I don't know, it's dark!
Again, I'd like to talk about the lighting. I know this is a music video and he probably wants ~a VIBE~, but is this room always purple? And also, what is it??? It truly just looks like it's covered with mirrors and I didn't see any furniture. Is it even a room or just an alcove? Is it an Instagram trap? I will literally never know, so moving on!
At the end of the video/tour, Drake goes outside into his "yard," which is basically one of those massive landscapes from Pride and Prejudice, and sets off a bunch of fireworks.
So. many. fireworks. And yes, this is what the mansion looks like from the outside. It's massive and beautiful.
Anyway, I'm sure there are roughly 23 other rooms we didn't see, but a glimpse is a glimpse!
Did you spot something cool in the video? Tell us in the comments!
