Drake Addresses “Hotline Bling” Comparisons To “Cha Cha”

Since before the full version of Drake’s “Hotline Bling” even dropped, it was getting comparisons to D.R.A.M.’s breakout hit, “Cha Cha.” So much so, sites even assumed it was a remix of the song when a short clip of Drake performing it at a friend’s wedding went viral. When it was released in full, however, Drake made no reference to D.R.A.M., and the two were quickly differentiated – despite the fact they have a VERY similar beat. D.R.A.M. has remained quiet about it since its release in July, but following a performance in Drake’s hometown of Toronto earlier this week – the same night that Drake dropped the highly-discussed “Hotline Bling” video – he had to let something off his chest. Taking to Twitter that night, the Virginia artist said he feels he got “jacked,” and now Drizzy is addressing the claims. In an unreleased excerpt from his FADER interview from last month, Drake compared the situation to a riddim in Dancehall.

Last month, Beyoncé took to Instagram with a super cute video of her doing her little dance to newcomer D.R.A.M.’s breakout single “Cha Cha,” saying that the song makes her happy. The song was already doing well on its own, but of course with a co-sign from Queen Bey, it blew up even more after that! Apparently Beyoncé loved it so much, she decided she wanted to make some of her own happy tunes with the Virginia native, and yesterday the pair were spotted together in the studio. “It’s lit forever, Queen,” D.R.A.M. said on Instagram with the above photo and a prayer hands emoji. I’m excited to hear what they cook up!
