VIDEO: Drake – Hotline Bling
Directed by Director X, Drake releases an official music video for his summer hit, ‘Hotline Bling’. The track was produced by Nineteen85 and is a remix of D.R.A.M.‘s breakout single, ‘Cha Cha’, who recently vocalized his frustrations with the success of ‘Hotline Bling’. Feeling robbed of his first single, the emerging Virginia artist vented his thoughts via his twitter account in which the Toronto native replied to the accusations:
“You know, like in Jamaica, you’ll have a riddim and it’s like, everyone has to do a song on that. Imagine that in rap, or imagine that in R&B. Imagine if we got one beat and every single person—me, this guy, this guy, all these guys—had to do a song on that one beat. So sometimes I’ll pick a beat that’s a bit, like, sunnier, I guess is the word you used, than usual, and I just try my hand at it. And that’s kind of what ‘Hotline Bling’ was. And I loved it. It’s cool. I’ve been excited by that sort of creative process.”
