Drake has dropped the highly-anticipated video for his track Hotline Bling. Keeping with the song’s booty call theme, the Director X-helmed video opens up with an office full of phone sex operators before the action shifts to Drake, who delivers his surprise smash single in a sleek, futuristic room where monochromatic colors bounce off the walls. Like the song itself, the Hotline Bling video debuted on Apple Music.
According to Rolling Stone, Since Drake debuted the song on OVO Sound’s Beats 1 radio show in late July, the track has proved to be a smash hit, almost pushing Drake towards his first-ever Number One hit. The track has often been called a remix of the rapper D.R.A.M.’s tropical “Cha Cha.” While Drake has never confirmed that Hotline Bling is a remix of Cha Cha, the song does contain a sped-up sample of Timmy Thomas’ “Why Can’t We Live Together.
The rapper has showed off a variety of moves that we just can’t ignore in the newly dropped video by Director X, and he made it very clear that he is all of us listening to the catchy track
Whether he’s just bopping around in circles, or really getting into it with some thrusting and salsa moves, Drizzy’s dancing is everything we never knew we needed, reported E Online.
Some of his fans even took on to Twitter to talk about the song. Here are some of them:

According to The Daily Beast, Turrell?s retrospective of color and light works isn?t the only nod to highbrow expression in ?Hotline Bling.? Its primary set, centered around an all-white staircase that?s decorated first with posing ladies and then with a contemplative Drake in his third casual costume of the video, looks to be inspired by the grand staircase located within Frankfurt?s Staedel Museum. Or maybe it?s just a slick modern architectural metaphor a set designer dreamed up, tempting Drake to climb up into an inviting pink-hued pleasure cave of no return symbolizing his ex?
