Drake “Hotline Bling” Video

Drake’s sure-fire approach of sporadic releases—which routinely streak up the Billboard charts with little-to-no radio promotion, even if they were meant for someone else—has earned him quite the reputation. But, all that ends today with the seemingly polished presentation of his official music video for “Hotline Bling.”

A sleeper hit of summer 2015, the Timmy Thomas-sampling single has the self-proclaimed 6 god doing an awful lot of pandering as it inches toward the top of the Billboard chart. If Drizzy is able to eclipse his fellow Canadian crooner The Weeknd, “Hotline Bling” would—surprisingly—earn Drake his first number one single as the lead artist.

Does Drake need a number one single to certify his prominence and cement his legacy? No. But, Charles Barkley never won a championship, and now look what the NBA is stuck with. We can’t let Drake become the Charles Barkley of rap!

Watch Drake’s official music video for “Hotline Bling” above, and listen to Timmy’s original below.
