Ever since it hit the airwaves we’ve… been waiting on a video for so long. Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’ has been the track of the summer and has been climbing the Billboard Hot 100 charts since July. Right behind The Weeknd’s ‘The Hills’, ‘Hotline Bling’ has claimed the number two spot and now there’s finally a video to go with it. On Instagram, Drake wrote “If I get my first number one during the month of October it will be the biggest moment of my career to date (in my mind) and if you are looking for me on that particular evening I will be passed out in the water slide that connects to our pool.”

The rapper took a very minimalistic approach to this one; The majority of the video was focused solely on him, his cha-cha skills, his 600 wardrobe changes, and a few curvy female co-star silhouettes. We can’t help but get a Kanye West-SNL-Wolves-performance vibe from this video though, the slightly awkward dancing included.

The video dropped around 6pm EST via Apple Music (who are apparently till squabbling with Tidal over the 6 God). If anyone is looking for the number to the most sought after call centre ever, it’s 1-800-HOTLINE-BLING.
