Posted on

So you may have heard of a song called "Hotline Bling" by the 6 God himself, Drake. / Via Instagram: @champagnepapi

The popular stand-alone single quickly became the summer anthem when it was released by Drake on his OVO Sound Radio via Apple Music in July. Fast forward three months and Hotline Bling is still climbing the Billboard Top 100 Chart currently peaking at # 2. The song also contributed to Drake becoming one of very few artists to have 100 or more Billboard Hot 100 Hits.

The "Hotline Bling" whirlwind is hardly over because other celebrities appear to be loving the song too. So much so that they are creating their own covers of the popular hit and killing it.

i want to experience this so bad

Here is Drake performing the original version of Hotline Bling that still has us all singing along every time we hear it.

And here are four covers of "Hotline Bling" that are a must hear by other artists:

Alessia Cara

This acoustic cover is the perfect because of Alessia's unique and soulful voice. Alessia is well known for her popular Youtube covers which eventually lead to her discovery. So in true Alessia Cara fashion, she did not disappoint when tackling this song.
