Drake dropped new music Thursday night, a single titled "Toosie Slide." The hip-hop superstar used the song's video to acknowledge the late Kobe Bryant.

In the official video's opening sequence, the camera follows Drake as he dances across the floor of his home and then quickly pans back to two white Bryant Lakers jerseys — one No. 8, one No. 24 — draped over a desk. A halo rises above the 24 jersey.

Bryant, 41, was killed in a helicopter crash in Southern California on Jan. 26. Bryant's 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, and seven other people also died when the aircraft slammed into a hillside in Calabasas, Calif. 

If you want to learn the song's now-viral dance, here's the full video, courtesy of Drake's YouTube channel. (Also, peep Rogers Centre, home of the Blue Jays, in the opening shot):
