WTF Happened In Hip-Pop This Week? Drake Drops ‘Hotline Bling’ Video, The Weeknd Covers Rolling Stone, & More



Let’s start by saying, Drake knew what he was doing when he started everyone’s week off with the Hotline Bling video. It’s literally taken over every social media platform, and rightfully so. It’s safe to say he might win Dancer of the Year because of it. But the bling in the hotline might have ultimately overshadowed the other things going on in the world of Hip-Hop and Hip-Pop alike. So what’d you miss? I’m glad you asked.

Get your “wtf’s” ready.
