Drake responds to claim with Instagram post
Adele has expressed interest in recording an official remix of Drake song ‘Hotline Bling’.
‘Hotline Bling’ has become one of the year’s biggest, and most memed, hits. It has been covered by everyone from Disclosure to Justin Bieber and spoofed by Donald Trump among others.
Speaking to etalk’s Danielle Graham, Adele revealed that she is a big fan of the song and sings it when she is drunk. “I really want us to do an official remix,” Adele said. “I love Drake. I love Drake so much. I even got the coat that’s in the video – I got it delivered the other day, I ordered it. The red one.”
“I had a drink like three weeks ago [with] my best friends – in fact, it was to celebrate ‘Hello’. And I was off my face because I don’t really drink anymore, and they’ve got a video of me dancing to it on a coffee table as well,” Adele added.
Adele is celebrating a huge first day of sales for new album ’25’. The album is on course to rival the biggest one-week album sales in UK chart history after selling 300,000 copies in its first 24 hours on sale.
The album was released on Friday (November 20) via independent label XL Recordings. Official Charts Company data shows that as of midnight last night, the album has registered 300,000 sales. These figures do not include streaming data as Adele has withheld the album from all streaming services.
Just two albums have sold more than half a million copies in the space of a week – Take That’s ‘Progress’ in 2010, and Oasis’s ‘Be Here Now’ which sold 695,761 after going on sale in August 1997. Adele’s second album ’21’ sold 208,000 copies in its first week in January 2011.
Drake has yet to comment on the offer of an Adele remix but did post the following image of an animated version of himself and the singer on Instagram yesterday:
