MUST HEAR: Drake – “Hotline Bling” (OVO Sound Mix)

hotline-bling-ovo-sound-mix

Ahead of What A Time To Be Alive hitting the net, Drake stopped by his label’s OVO SOUND radio show at Beats One to premiere his long anticipated collaborative release with Future. It was a moment that will go down as a highlight of hip-hop in 2015, but before the record even dropped something equally great debuted that we could not wait to play again.

In the midst of a collection of tracks, Drizzy spun a chopped and slowed version of his recent hit “Hotline Bling” that gives the popular song an entirely new vibe. The chill feel of the original mix has been pushed to the extreme, and a creative twist on the flow of the lyrics gives the whole affair a new edge that hooks you right from the start. You can stream the remix below.

What A Time To Be Alive hit iTunes at 8PM EST and is available now on Apple Music as well. We will have more coverage of that record in the days ahead. Stay tuned.
