Drake just took a casual trip to Barbados and fans are so excited

Drake is in Barbados after spending multiple months self-isolating in Canada, and in the famous words of the rapper himself, "Started from the bottom now we're here."

And by "here," we mean drinking frozen beverages on the beach on a tropical island.

The Toronto rapper's unexpected appearance has delighted many fans, some of whom have taken to social media to share pictures of themselves with the Canadian icon.

"Drake is a real one for real," one person wrote. "Got some celebrities that would come here and be stuck up."

"I hope Drake carry some farmers choice nuggets back home with him," another person said, referring to a beloved Barbados brand. "I feel like he deserves that blessing man."

Drake arrived in Barbados on Sunday, the same day the Caribbean island reopened to international visitors following a long lockdown due to the pandemic, per CBC News.

An eagle-eyed fan spotted the rapper's "Air Drake" Boeing 767 at the airport, and the photo blew up on online, with dozens of Canadians sharing the photo of Drake's $200 million jet.

Although some fans expressed concern that the Canadian rapper wasn't socially distancing properly, COVID-19 Czar Richard Carter told Barbados Today that Drake and his nine-person entourage were all tested for COVID-19 before they landed.

All of their tests came back negative.

Drake is expected to stay on the island until at least next Sunday while shooting a music video, per Barbados Today.

Considering that the rapper's last music video showed off his multi-million dollar Toronto mansion, it's hard to imagine how on earth he plans to top that.

Drake is also expected to drop two new songs in collaboration with DJ Khaled while he's in Barbados, with "Popstar" and "Greece" slated to be released tomorrow at midnight.
