Drake on if “Hotline Bling” Reaches No. 1: “It Will be the Biggest Moment of My Career”
Drake's "Hotline Bling" is the No. 2 record on Billboard Hot 100 chart. The success of the song has been incredible and it's only going to get bigger if Drizzy, as promised, drops the music video for the track this week. The 6 God took to Instagram last night (Oct. 14) to say that if "Hotline Bling" reaches No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart next week, it would be the biggest moment of his career. If that happens, it would be Drake's first solo song to ever reach that feat. He wrote in the Instagram caption, "I always love the moment right before it happens more than when it actually happens. So thank you...even if it doesn't." Read his full post above.
"Hotline Bling" has been remixed by superstars like Sam Smith and Erykah Badu. Now a Tumblr user creatively meshed "Hotline Bling" with the original beats for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Super Mario 64, and Mario Kart 64. You must listen to that here. A new critic of the Toronto MC spoke to Rolling Stone in a recent interview. Gorillaz/Blur frontman Damon Albarn was in a discussion about what pop star he listened to. When asked about what he thinks of Drake, he said: "He's not as consistent as he could be." We wonder if Albam knows that Drizzy is one of four artists to score 100 Hot 100 entries. Drake, on the other hand, took his love for Grime to another level. Skepta posted on Instagram a picture of Drake sporting a new tattoo that reads "BBK"—a reference to Boy Better Know, the crew Skepta helped found. The Grime MC captioned his photo, "More than music. OVO BBK family for life." See that photo below.
