#HotlineBling: Drake Dances His Way Into Hearts With These 6 Basement Party Moves

There are thousands and thousands of dancers in the world...

And in all of the music videos that I've seen Drake appear in, I've never considered him to be one of them.

But Drake proves our feelings about his dance moves are irrelevant in his latest (and probably his most anticipated) music video, Hotline Bling. We were already feeling the song when it dropped after his Meek Mill dis "Charged Up," but Drake takes his Carlton, Bachata flow from "fleek" to "unbothered" in the visuals for his latest music video.

Look at Papi swinging that arm like he just won a dice game! Get it daddy!

I'm pretty sure he remixed The Dougie right here. But he still manages to look good doing the Dougie 2.0 while rocking his OVO seater.

In case you had not guessed by now, this next gif is a great opportunity for you to join in the #DrakeALwaysOnBeat hashtag. Just saying that you can play a Ricky Martin song over the gif below, and Drake would still be getting it.

"Hotline Bling" has been a hit since it debuted on the OVO Sound Beats radio show back in July. Since then, it's slowly creeping on a come up to number one on the charts. Hopefully the visuals below of Drake doing his modified version of the Stanky Leg will give this song the push it needs to number one.

And of course, when your girlfriend is humping the floor, you take a nap on her booty. That's exactly what you do! YOLO.

There's also the signature move you do at a basement party when the DJ hits that Dancehall mix!

According to #DrakeAlwaysOnBeat, these moves are suitable to a variety of music like the theme song to The Cosby Show, Living Single, and also Santana's Maria (Westside Story):

Oh Drake!

Obviously fans are excited about this new single, as it's currently sitting at #2 on Billboard's Hot 100, and from the looks of things, Drake is going to cha-cha all the way to #1. "Hotline Bling" is such a big deal that other artists have offered up their remix versions, including Erykah Badu, Iman Shumpert, Keyshia Cole, Mila J., Trina, and Kehlani & Charli Puth (I liked this version a lot).

Watch the full video below, and tell us what you think.

P.S. If you love Drake's "Hotline Bling," then you may also love D.R.A.M's "Cha Cha!" Last night, D.R.A.M tweeted that he felt "Hotline Bling" was heavily influenced by his song:



These Newlyweds Found Love Thanks To A Friend Playing Matchmaker

How We Met is a series where xoNecole talks love and relationships with real-life couples. We learn how they met, how like turned into love, and how they make their love work.

Jason and Elise Robinson’s union is a reminder that kind people still get their happily ever after. The pair had their first date in October of 2021 and tied the knot on June 15, 2024. Both of them have dedicated their lives to celebrating and supporting Black culture so it was only fitting they get married in what's considered the Black Hollywood of America during the Juneteenth celebration weekend. From the florists to Elise and Jason's gown and suit designers to the table signage and so much more, everything was Black-owned. It's no wonder their love for Black culture was the jumping-off point for their love story.


While in a session with a client a few months back, she found herself going on a bit of a tangent about how no woman she knows has ever experienced a vaginal orgasm before, so she didn’t get why it was such a big deal. All I did was sit quietly and let her vent until she said, “Right Shellie? Do you know anyone who’s had one before?”

Yep. Me. And yes, I am well aware of the fact that it’s kind of like being a unicorn out here. Trust me.
