“You used to call me on my cellphone…”
Drake dropped the official music video for his summer banger, “Hotline Bling,” five days before he celebrates his 29th birthday.
The simplistic-yet-colorful visual directed by X features Drizzy busting his best senior citizen shimmy (aka “The Savage Bop”) with intermittent sprinkles of brick houses.
In a recent post on his Instagram page, Drake expressed his desire to obtain his first Billboard no. 1 with “Hotline Bling,” which currently sits at no. 2.
I spend my life trying to make waves for the city I am from. No accolades really matter to me other than the fact that I have never had a billboard number one. 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. I love you and thank you for these memories. I always love the moment right before it happens more than when it actually happens. So thank you…even if it doesn’t.
I’m sure this visual will push “Hotline Bling” to that no. 1 spot giving Drake the ultimate birthday present.
