Last week, Drake told his fans he was dropping the video for his hit single “Hotline Bling,” and he just lived up to that promise.
The song’s been burning up the charts all summer, landing at number two on the Billboard Hot 200. Despite his success in the music biz, Drake has yet to have a number one single, and he hopes the video for “Hotline Bling” will take him over the top.
“If I get my first number one during the month of October,” he wrote on Instagram last week, “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.”
Well, tonight Drake may be passed out in the pool for a different reason: Twitter is having a collective ha-ha at his dance moves.
During the video, Drake grooves his way through several colorful backdrops, and well…folks didn’t hold back their opinions.
