Now that Back To The Future Day has passed, let’s talk about the Drake “Hotline Bling” video. With the song rising the charts since Drizzy dropped it as a ‘loosie’ in July, it was only time to get a visual. And it’s one helluva visual folks. Honestly, it’s like a dance tutorial, which we’ll get to in the second.
The visuals for the “Hotline Bling” video are simple and energetic. Director X basically let’s Drake show off his jimmy legs in simple sets with alternating colors of light. For a bouncy track like this, the concept is more than fitting. It’s just that some of the outfits and dance moves are too incredible for humans to handle.
If you like salsa dancing, there’s a segment for you, which might also be our favorite. Maybe you want to work on your mean mug while wearing a turtleneck, if so, there’s a section of the video for that. If you’re here for the feels, and you probably are since it’s a Drake vid, there’s even shots of him alone on stairs “relating so hard.” All of the dance mania concludes with ya boy thuggin’ in a puffy jacket in the same vein as “The Motto” video. Most of the dances described are captured in the slideshow below if you need a visual for comparison to your own moves.
And we’re not the first ones to catch in on this. Memes from the “Hotline Bling” video have popped up all over the place. And why not? When you’re climbing toward the #1 song in the country, have a little fun. Enjoy the video above. We’ll be working on our salsa moves.
