Drake let the world know that having “Hotline Bling” approaching No.1 status was huge for him. According to Drizzy, having a record finally top Billboard’s Hot 100 chart would be “the biggest moment of my career to date,” and now he looks to give the track an extra boost with a new video, keeping with his promise made on Sunday.
If only all success was so effortless as Drizzy makes it appear. The 6 God is maybe the only artist alive with the uncanny ability to release a loose song and watch it not only go viral immediately, but have it climb to the top of the Billboard charts. What began as a random cut he dropped on OVO Sound Radio with three other tracks during the Meek Mill feud will now probably end up being the first No. 1 record of his career. And, the song’s only grown bigger with artists from all genres, from Sam Smith to Erykah Badu, and walks of life, like NBA baller Iman Shumpert, adding their twist.
Still, no one’s topping the original and that notion should be cemented with the new video. Drake keeps it simple for the visual with some colorful backdrops, a couple of hilarious #DrakeFaces and plenty of eye candy. And the dancing. Do not forget the dancing.
