D.R.A.M. Takes To Social Media To Speak About Drake Jacking His “Cha Cha” Record
After hitting the stage in Toronto for the very first time and performing “Cha Cha“, D.R.A.M. took to social media and spoke on Drake copying his song with his own Billboard-topping hit “Hotline Bling“. D.R.A.M. feels like Drake jacked him for his record and this is what he had to say about the matter:
Just performed in Toronto for the 1st time tonight and it was bittersweet. Sweet cus I’m out here sharing my music, my sound with the people..Bitter though, cus after my performance all I’m seeing is Cha Cha/Hotline Bling comparisons on my timeline. Niggas want to know how I feel about that…Yeah, I feel I got jacked for my record…But I’m GOOD. I’m happy that the VA sound that me & @GabeNiles are steady working on is growing. And in 2016 we gon’ own it, GAHDAMN!
Drake recently spoke with Fader about the similarities between “Cha Cha” and “Hotline Bling“:
“You know, like in Jamaica, you’ll have a riddim and it’s like, everyone has to do a song on that,” Drake said. “Imagine that in rap, or imagine that in R&B. Imagine if we got one beat and every single person—me, this guy, this guy, all these guys—had to do a song on that one beat. So sometimes I’ll pick a beat that’s a bit, like, sunnier, I guess is the word you used, than usual, and I just try my hand at it. And that’s kind of what ‘Hotline Bling’ was. And I loved it. It’s cool. I’ve been excited by that sort of creative process.”
Um, what creative process?
