D.R.A.M. Says Drake ‘Jacked’ ‘Cha Cha’ for ‘Hotline Bling’

D.R.A.M. Says Drake ‘Jacked’ ‘Cha Cha’ for ‘Hotline Bling’

Fresh off performing in Drake’s hometown of Toronto, D.R.A.M. took to Twitter to air our his grievances after the “Hotline Bling” video premiered. “Just performed in Toronto for the 1st time tonight and it was bittersweet,” said the Virginia singer-rapper, adding, “Bitter though, cus after my performance all I’m seeing is Cha Cha/Hotline Bling comparisons on my timeline.”

While the songs may sound alike, “Hotline Bling,” produced by Nineteen85, credits a sample of Timmy Thomas’ 1972 song “Why Can’t We Live Together” and not “Cha Cha.” But the similarities are not sitting well with D.R.A.M.

“Ni**as want to know how I feel about that…” he said before calling out Drake. “Yeah, I feel I got jacked for my record…But I’m GOOD.”

“Hotline Bling” is currently No. 2, while D.R.A.M.’s “Cha Cha” has yet to chart on the Billboard Hot 100.
