Drake just dropped the “Hotline Bling” video. That could only mean one thing. He’s one step closer to his studio album release. Check out Champagne Papi’s 2-step and the brand new video inside…
Drizzy is giving us a Girl 6 vibe in the new visuals for his single “Hotline Bing.” Directed by Director X, the vid starts out with several curvaceous models giving their best lip service in a phone sex call center. Then Drake enters into a few abstract rooms dancing his 2-step. Some type of way, it’s all pretty sexy.
While his newest collabo mixtape with Future, What A Time To Be Alive, is still burning up the charts, we have a feeling Drake will be dropping his Views From The 6 studio album soon. No official word if “Hotline Bling” will appear on that project, but it surely seems possible.
We’ve got a quick teaser video below. Check out the full “Hotline Bling” video over at Apple Music HERE.
Drake found a way to make you forget his incredible lyrical skills (unless you’re Meek Mill) — by unleashing new dance moves that are burning up the Internet.
Drizzy summoned his inner Carlton Banks for his new “Hotline Bling” music video, and it’s freakin’ mesmerizing. Not necessarily because they’re great — he’s no Chris Brown — but it’s more like … it works for him?
It’s weird, but we’ve broken down his best steps … so you can study ’em. Y’know you will.

Tensions between Diddy and Drake are still sky high after their Miami fight — and now Drake’s longtime mentor is blasting Diddy, Suge Knight, Lil Wayne and Birdman in a blistering diss track.
Rap-A-Lot Records CEO James Prince recently recorded the cold-blooded warning — which we’re told he calls a “courtesy call” — and we got our hands on it.
Sources connected to J. Prince tell us this has been simmering since Diddy punched Drake outside LIV Nightclub back in December. On the track, Prince makes it clear Drizzy is “family,” and adds … “Puffy feeling like he can put his hands on my family, open the doors for his family to be touched. You reap what you sow.”
That’s just the start … he goes in on Weezy and Birdman — with whom he’s had a long-running legal war — and also rips “Sugar Bear” for a not-so-subtle jab at Drake he made to a TMZ camera guy.
You gotta hear the rant … it plays like a manifesto, but with a beat.
