Drake’s slow grooves in new video for track “Hotline Bling”, which had been jeered few days back has been receiving rave reviews lately. The video starts with some stunning women working in a call center and after that follows Drake dancing in a box. The singer looks suave sporting an orange jacket and teaming it up with blue jeans and Timberland boots.
According to the famous choreographer, Tre Armstrong, the rapper “has got some groove in his system.” She also said that she loves the grooves and vibes in the video as reported by CTV News.
Youth Program Coordinator of City Dance Corps, Toronto, Melissa Nascimento-So also has something good to say about Drake. After watching the video she felt that Drake enjoyed doing the video a lot and she thinks this is the true definition of dancing.
Drake in the video starts by crooning “You used to call me on my cellphone,” and then he shows some two-step/salsa/shimmy fusion. The animated tai-chi-esque arm movements also make his dance more interesting at this time. Drake is seen in a bevy of outfits in the video and does a myriad of body rolls, arm gestures, and deep-knee bends.
Co-founder of the Underground Dance Centre, Toronto, Aaron Libfeld is also all praises for the singer. He said that he appreciates “Drake for just having fun with it”. He finds it very impressive that a rapper is doing this; channeling out how he feels when the song starts buzzing from behind. He added that it’s a bold act.
Drake’s video is gaining immense popularity online. Fans and critics are making all sorts of comparisons. Drake in the video is mainly compared to Carlton and many also cannot stop themselves from making comparisons with the character played by Afonso Ribeiro in the famous ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’. Initially, the video was received with a lot of mockery but soon all the criticism subsided as more people came to show their appreciation for the video. The video is a hit for sure.
