No one expected “Hotline Bling” to get so popular, and no one expected it to become the next music phenomenon. Now you can’t go anywhere without hearing the iconic beats along with someone saying “you used to call me on my cellphone”. On Oct. 19, 2015 Drake released the highly anticipated music video for “Hotline Bling”, which was the first music video since If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late‘s “Energy”. Created by Director X with inspiration from American lights artist James Turrell, the video is clean and simple. The use of different colored lights and sharp shapes created an aesthetically pleasing world for Drake to freestyle some dances moves in. Heads up: the dancing is goofy and absolutely perfect.
