DRAKE BREAKS SILENCE ON ‘HOTLINE BLING’

Last week, Drake did an extensive interview with The FADER and this aforementioned topic came up, however The FADER hasn’t released Drizzy’s comments, until now. Comparing it to a Jamaican “riddim” where multiple artists use similar rhythms and flows for their respective songs, here’s what Aubrey told The FADER:

“You know, like in Jamaica, you’ll have a riddim and it’s like, everyone has to do a song on that,” Drake said. “Imagine that in rap, or imagine that in R&B. Imagine if we got one beat and every single person — me, this guy, this guy, all these guys—had to do a song on that one beat. So sometimes I’ll pick a beat that’s a bit, like, sunnier, I guess is the word you used, than usual, and I just try my hand at it. And that’s kind of what ‘Hotline Bling’ was. And I loved it. It’s cool. I’ve been excited by that sort of creative process.”

D.R.A.M. spoke on the situation as well, saying he felt like he got “jacked” for his record. Read the full story here.
