Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’ Video Is So Emo, So Drake

Yes, Apple Music finally gifted us the music video for Drizzy’s hit single “Hotline Bling” on Monday night. And, with its sweaters and Carlton-dancing, it was worth the wait. 

Drake’s melancholic booty call elegy “Hotline Bling” finally got a visual accompaniment Monday when the 6 God and Director X dropped a music video filled with phone sex operators and emotionally vivid solo Drizzy dance moves.

It's one of his most languorous recordings yet, with regards to the mid year hit Drake discharged back in July. In those days, the Meek Mill one-two punch of "Energized" and "Consecutive" became the dominant focal point (alongside his PowerPoint-supported obliteration of Nicki's bf).

Be that as it may, the meditative "Hotline Bling," delivered by Nineteen85 with a blustery day test of Timmy Thomas' percussive 1972 single "Why Can't We Live Together?" has subsequent to rose so high, it's as of now No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and is tied with 2009's "Best I Ever Had" as his best performing single to date.

The video makes fun loving gestures to Spike Lee's Girl 6, opening with a line about suggestive foot play in a call focus brimming with young ladies working the telephones, a reference to the melody's 1-900-motivated title. The fluctuating palette additionally notices to that film's utilization of shading to mirror its courageous woman's inward enthusiastic turmoil. That keeps things moving as the moderately straightforward video slices to four or more minutes of Drake moving as pastel lighting washes over him, revolving in melancholic distress (was that The Carlton?!) and for the most part without anyone else in a tweaking scene, against white spaces with calculated dividers.

I get a kick out of the chance to envision Drake walking around visual craftsman James Turrell's emo-toned light establishments at LACMA (as he did a year ago, recognized as all high workmanship is best remembered, in Instagram selfie structure) as he discloses to Director X how he feels when that hotline bling. Since that must mean one thing: JUST… GOTTA… CHA.

Turrell's review of shading and light works isn't the main gesture to highbrow expression in "Hotline Bling." Its essential set, revolved around an all-white staircase that is enriched first with posturing women and after that with a pondering Drake in his third easygoing ensemble of the video, hopes to be motivated by the excellent staircase situated inside of Frankfurt's Staedel Museum or Big Sean's "Endowments" video. Then again perhaps it's only a smooth cutting edge engineering allegory a set architect concocted, enticing Drake to ascend into an intriguing pink-toned joy hollow of no arrival symbolizing his ex? The pop graphs? His craft world future?
