How did this shit even got popular?
Sure it's an ok track but it gained a lot of popularity in just a few days.
And his dance isnt even funny/quirky
this dropped before the meek mill debacle dumbass
the track dropped on soundcloud & climbed to top 20 before it was officially sent to radio.
didn't have a video till it hit #2.
you were saying?
"dropped on soundcloud"
You mean pinned to the top of everybody's page for weeks on end. So organic
Doesn't hurt to have the biggest music website in pitchfork shilling for you 24/7 too
Yup. It's pretty much a meme for normies. In the same vein as DJ Khaled and his keys to success.
There's actual substance and humour to the DJ khaled keys though. The hotline bling thing was just normal faggots making a meme out of something that wasn't even remotely associated with funny.
It's covers all bases.
