Drake‘s thirst for a TikTok hit has paid off. The rapper’s “Toosie Slide” is blowing up and has set a new record on the video-sharing platform.

TMZ reports that the “#ToosieSlide” hashtag hit a billion views in just two days, making it the fastest music trend to reach the ten-figure milestone on the popular app.

According to the outlet, “#ToosieSlide related content” has since received a total of three billion views, breaking the record previously held by Kylie Jenner, whose “#RiseandShine” content was the first hashtag to get one billion views on the app back in October.

“Toosie Slide” hit streaming services in early April, inspiring a dance craze. The single was specifically aimed at creating a viral dance, complete with dance instructions in the lyrics — “It go right foot up, left foot, slide/Left foot up, right foot, slide” — and a leaked preview video by ATL choreographer Toosie.
