Drake’s Hotline Isn’t The Only Thing Blingin’ [Music Video]

The kid Drake has been killing in 2015. Everywhere from the Meek Mill beef to the mad support of Serena Williams in her quest for The Grand Slam. Drizzy stealthily dropped another Top 5 hit in “Hotline Bling” amongst all the other internet crashing occurrences involving Aubrey this year. This is a laid back track infused with another hit by Dram called “Cha-Cha.” Director X gives you a visual that exudes the musical feeling of Philips Hue Lights to display every mood possible when you receive that hotline bling. The opening with what most believe is the opposite of the 976 hotlines made this call center the official Eye Candy employed office with a beautiful water cooler for even the sexiest of gossip.

I have to say that Drake kept it thick throughout the video no less. But another attention getter was the hit making Canadian’s array of dance moves. What I took from it was Drake really doesn’t give a f**k what anybody thinks because he was the epitome of that dude that be gettin’ it in the club and don’t care who’s around. The kid even gave you a little bit of the Whop (If you don’t know what the Whop is look up Hip-Hop late 80’s) and to close out the video he politely lays his head on some *coughs* pillows. It’s going to be mad jokes about his twinkle toe moves but I like the fact that Drake is comfortable where he is right now and it shows. Anybody seen my celly?

Ian Eastwood’s Choreo “The Calm” by Drake is Anything But Calm

Nicely directed by Commonless and of course stellar choreo from Ian Eastwood put together on a classic Drake track “The Calm” from the his infamous Mixtape “So Far Gone.” If you ever wanted or needed a visual of Drake’s version of “The Calm” this was great pictorial. “Location, Location, Location” was so on point for this track and choreography illustrated by the all to talented Ian Eastwood. It’s no denying that Mr. Eastwood is feeling this track because along with his movement he’s reciting lyrics to drive intricate movement home to the masses partaking in viewing this piece. I can’t front this piece got me wanting to pop in the classic mixtape and lace up some Vans and get my step on.

Back in the Vault: Drake’s & Lykke Li’s “Little Bit” Choreo By: Joseph Ling

Felt like going back a lil bit (yea pun intended lol) with one of my fav choreographers Joseph Ling of Nameless Dance Crew. And of course from the Drake’s ridunkulous mixtape “So Far Gone,” Joseph does another smooth and seamless dance routine on a smooth and seamless track “Little Bit” featuring Drake and Lykke Li. Joseph Ling was one of the dancers that introduced me to this style of dancing in which we see a lot of all over YouTube these days and I must give him props on that alone. I don’t see Mr. Ling on the YouTube circuit as much anymore but it’s always great to go back to the classics and the kid always keeps it fluid.

Dance Vault: “Something” by Drake Choreo by Joseph Ling Feat. Nameless Dance Crew

This came off as a perfect mesh the intricate motion and flow of Mr. Joseph Ling and another banger lifted from that “set a new presedent” in mixtape the history of “mixtape-adom” lol. A perfect marriage of music and movement, what else can you ask for? It totally looks like this relationship from what I’ve seen is built to last and is well worth going back into the Dance Vault. In this set Joseph includes two other dancers I believe from the Nameless Dance Crew on Drizzy’s “Something” demonstrating the fluid steps and snaps making even the slowest groove a slow groove manifestation of point on point with a little domino effect flow on the dance surface. Comes across totally effortless.

Kendrick Lamar’s “Poetic Justice” Feat. Drake [Music Video]

Along with getting heavy radio rotation Kendrick Lamar drops the visual of “Poetic Justice” featuring Drake. Of course it opens on Crenshaw in hang out mode on the strip giving you that Boyz ‘N Da Hood/Poetic Justice feel. The video actually tells a vivid story over 5 minutes and 28 seconds of a new boy meets girl, girl has a semi former lover, new boy has an enemy from the streets bent on revenge in one scenario. The Drake verse was cleverly inserted and shot as he phoned in(Not too much different from how collabos are done these days) a missed call leaving a voice mail after the love fatality.

This is a very movie-like music video. Looks like the video started shooting in LA which almost had me until I saw a Hunter Ambulance pull up to pick up the casualties that let me know it finished in NYC lol (And the exclamation point was the (718) phone number on the side of ambulance lol). The end result is a great piece of work.
