“Hotline Bling” Fails To Hit #1 On The Billboard Hot 100


It may have created more memes than we can possibly count at this point, but Drake’s sadboy anthem “Hotline Bling” came just short of hitting #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. Billboard announced that “Bling” will stay at #2, while The Weeknd’s “The Hills” will remain at #1 for another week, with Adele’s comeback single “Hello” expected to covet the top spot next week.

During a live-stream of the countdown, Billboard revealed that because Drizzy posted the video on Apple Music, the gargantuan streaming numbers don’t factor toward Billboard streaming sales; only YouTube and Vevo streams count toward that.

Drake’s hotline nuh bling.
