’15 Best Singles #7: Drake “Hotline Bling”

Written By: @Elliottwilson January 7, 2016 @ 12:00 PM EDT

Drake Line One.

Fuck a rap battle, the top MC in the game drew inspiration from D.R.A.M.’s “Cha Cha” and lowkey created one of the biggest smashes in his legendary career. This catchy tale about an old flame really heated up when the goofy dance-filled video went viral. Just another genius move from The Boy.—EW

    This song is too Overrated. Trap queen was clearly the best single of 2015.

    I love Drake but I love hip hop more and it’s crazy that people use Drakes rnb/pop dominance to put him over real MC’s who got to the top by just rapping

    • Reggie

      But he can also rap better than ya “real emcees”

      • Iamstillmusic

        Stop it bro, Kendrick and Cole would eat him alive

  • Jumpman

    All these people hating are just close-minded and think that a “rapper” or “hip hop” artist can only have one type of sound. I love that this is different. And no one can deny how catchy it is, and the video is genius.

      Shut up, Sonic! You’re a mentally unstable psychopath who changes her profile once a week and up-votes your own posts? Kill yourself #PillsAreGood

    This song is garbage!

    • Room 222

      You and I can agree on that one; and that doesn’t happen often.

      It’s Deeper than Rap.

      Couldn’t have said it better myself. Plus, Drake looses additional points for Jacking D.R.A.M.’s “Cha Cha” wave. SMH

        Damn right

    Legendary career huh lol. And I like Drake’s music. But no classic albums, ducked Kendrick, slapped up by Diddy. Yea, legendary indeed.
