TTC to potholes: All the spots Drake hit up in Toronto in his new video ‘What’s Next’

Toronto legend Drizzy a.k.a. Drake just dropped his latest EP “Scary Hours II,” Friday midnight, and with that, a new video that shining a bright light on the city for the track “What’s Next.”

From overlooking on the edge of the CN Tower to riding the TTC, here are the popular spots in Toronto the ‘6ix God’ visited on a blistery winter night.

Yonge-Dundas Square

The iconic intersection in the heart of downtown Toronto, dubbed by many as the Times Square of the city, is the first recognizable location in the video. Viewers also get a short glimpse of Eaton Centre in the background in one of the shots.

TTC Subway

A significant portion of the video is shot on public transit, with Drake walking through an empty TTC subway car with his friend Travis Savoury, more commonly know by his stage name Baka Not Nice.

Drake raps the lines “I sit in a box where the owners do, a boss is role that I’ve grown into,” as he walks through the iconic of the signature red-and-white subway car.

Under the Gardiner

In the next sequence, Champagne Papi is seen rapping from a car under the Gardiner Expressway. This stretch, located under the highway, hosts the Bentway, which is a community public space featuring an ice skating trail, patios and street murals.

Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada

Drake, like many others hoping to snap an Instagrammable photo, can be spotted in the underwater glass tunnel as sharks and jellyfish swim by at the well known aquarium next to the Rogers Centre.

Bonus: Pot holes

Though there are no noticeable potholes in the video, Drake’s song features the lines “How many nights I been, woah / Swervin’ them potholes / Not tryna f — k up the wheels on the road” — an issue which has long been plaguing Torontonians and debated in city council. Here’s the latest on Toronto’s pothole watch from The Fixer: mild weather and COVID-19 equals fewer potholes.
