Drake released “Hotline Bling” single on July 31, 2015 and it has not left music top charts since. The wacky music video released along with it ensured that the single stayed on the charts for an extended period of time. “Hotline Bling” never got to the first place on Billboard Hot 100 Chart due to heavy competition from Justin Bieber and Adele. Still, it was a pretty big sensation and still is. If you want to download the original track, it’s on iTunes and Amazon.
As with many hit single, covers boomed up on YouTube for “Hotline Bling” and we have filtered some of the best and most creative covers for you. Take a look at them below.
05) Cover by Daniela Andrade
This is so good. I’m not sure if it deserves a higher spot on this list, but here it goes. Daniela has super slowmoed this track and the only music being the guitar adds a nice touch over her accented voice.
04) Cover by Ceresia
Wow, 1000 points for creativity. Ceresia completely re-did the Drake’s original track and flipped it into a female’s perspective. So essentially it is a remix cover, and we are in love. Her voice and music works perfectly in sync for this cover. You can even download this remix on iTunes and support her amazing music.
03) Cover by Megan Davies
If you have been following JustRandomThings you know that I’m a sucker for acoustic music. Same goes to acoustic covers, because they are quite difficult to do successfully. And Megan Davies has done a very impressive creation with this acoustic cover of “Hotline Bling” along with a little help from Luke Preston.
02) Cover by Conor Maynard
I did not know that Conor Mayanrd, being a professional artist and all, did so many covers on YouTube. So it was surprising as well as pleasing when I came across this “Hotline Bling” cover by Conor Maynard. He sneaks in a little “Can’t Feel My Face” by The Weeknd towards the end of the cover, that made us put him on the second spot.
01) Cover by William Singe
One of the top and best cover makers on YouTube steals our heart to win the best cover of Drake’s “Hotline Bling.” The almost-acoustic track has given us the chills. His voice, tune and professional beats, all works in favor to produce an amazing replica of the original track, but with a unique touch.
