Since its release on October 19, Drake’s much-parodied ‘Hotline Bling’ video has helped the track to scale the charts on both sides of the Atlantic. The single currently sits at Number Two in the US and Number Three in the UK.
However, Drake was recently accused of “jacking” fellow artist DRAM’s song ‘Cha Cha’ with ‘Hotline Bling’.
‘Cha Cha’ was originally released in March, with Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’ following in July. The similarities between the two songs has been noted previously, with Beats 1 describing Drake’s song as a ‘Cha Cha remix’ when it first premiered on the artist’s own Ovosound radio show. Drake has since described it as a “quasi cover”, according to Billboard.
DRAM himself took to Twitter recently to accuse Drake of “jacking” his song. He wrote: “Just performed in Toronto for the 1st time tonight and it was bittersweet… cus after my performance all I’m seeing is Cha Cha/Hotline Bling comparisons on my timeline.”
Continuing: “I feel I got jacked for my record… But I’m GOOD.”
