Lockdown isn’t stopping Drake from getting his swim on. In an Instagram post on Saturday, the rapper flaunted his new backyard pool as he tested the waters for the very first time. While it’s hardly surprising that Drake’s swimming pool is the size of a lake, it’s hard not to be a little bowled over.

While most of the country is practicing social distancing and staying at home, Drake has just proved that some people’s lockdown experiences are a little more extra than others.

In an Instagram story on Saturday, the Toronto local shared a video of his colossal outdoor swimming pool, while explaining that it was the first time he’d ever used it.

Streaming from the water, Drake explained, "Yes sir, first swim of the summer, first time ever in the pool actually to be honest. It's my first time ever out here."

Showing fans the gigantic mansion, and the lake-sized pool, he continued, "Hope everybody in the city is just enjoying the beautiful day." 

We would be if we had that in our back yard, Drake.

Prior to posting the envy-inspiring clip, the 6ix rapper also shared an image of his garden and poolside, with the message "Finally." superimposed on it.

According to BlogTO, the mini-ocean is the same pool that can be spotted in the music video for “Toosie Slide.”

This isn’t the first time that Drake has given his Instagram followers a sneak-peak inside his lavish AF Bridle Path mansion.

Earlier this year, he shared a video showing the living room inside his $6.7 million home, and it was just as extravagant as you might expect.

While he’s yet to share too much about his private indoor basketball court, and his special toilet that plays music, this first look at his pool is likely to be an exciting update for fans of the “God’s Plan” singer.

According to Complex, Drake once said that he wanted to own the world's biggest pool.

In 2014, he reportedly stated, "I'm obsessed with, like, residential pools. One of my goals in life is to have the biggest residential pool on the planet."

Looking at his latest video, his opinion probably hasn't changed.

The rapper wasn't the only person in the GTA who was outside enjoying the warm weather this weekend.

Up to 10,000 locals reportedly gathered at Toronto's Trinity Bellwoods Park on Saturday, many of whom were socializing in groups of more than five, not practicing social distancing and not wearing masks.

If only we all had our own backyard swimming pool, eh?!
