On Monday, Drake released a video for his hit song “Hotline Bling.” The four-and-a-half-minute clip, which sees Drake slow grooving against James Turrell–like Technicolor backgrounds, quickly became an Internet phenomenon. Fashion fans lusted after his collection of fall sweaters and jackets. (Online sales for that red Moncler puffer even doubled after its debut.) Others, however, noticed the rapper’s dance moves paired up quite nicely with a number of catchy songs. (Even Drake couldn’t help but give one a shoutout on his Instagram account.) As so many Vine creators and Instagram users went wild with mash-up possibilities, here, we spotlight the very best memes inspired by “Hotline Bling.”

Nice guys finish first. With his record-breaking Certified Lover Boy (OVO/Republic), Drake once again gifts us all with a comfortable, dare I say easy-listening experience that’s pretty much exactly what we’d expect it to be. From his point of view, Drake’s continual stranglehold on hip-hop’s zeitgeist puts him on the same GOAT tier as a Jay-Z. But the safety zone sweet spot of his whole discography threatens to make him far more of a post-millennial Will Smith: smiley, commercial, non-threatening. (Source: hitsdailydouble.com)

Drake wins (Certified Lover Boy broke Donda’s record for the most-streamed album in 24 hours on Apple Music) because he, as the saying goes, “understands the assignment.” His album cover, full of a dozen emojis of pregnant women, became an instant meme because Drake has an unerring eye for instant memes—something of extreme importance these days, given social media’s omnipotence. His “Way 2 Sexy” video—including 1980s nods to John Travolta in Perfect, Rambo, Prince and Michael Jackson—is one big, self-deprecating, knowing wink to his image as a pop-star babe magnet. He plays to his strengths, makes fun of himself before his rivals can, and throws in enough pathos to create the illusion of some depth.
