Adele said she'd be interested in remixing Drake's Hotline Bling
In what, to use a hackneyed expression, would, if not break the Internet, at the very least briefly incapacitate it, Adele has said that she would enjoy remixing Drake’s excessively memed “Hotline Bling.”
Adele was asked during an interview with etalk about the fan-made mash-ups of “Hello” and “Hotline Bling” already floating around the Internet-centered around the curious coincidence that the two biggest songs in the nation right now (at a time when no one has picked up a phone call in, like, years) are both predicated on phone calls.
Adele-whose 25 is primed to eclipse N’Sync’s long-standing first-week sales record-said she is a major fan of Drake’s.
“I really want us to do an official remix [of ‘Hotline Bling’],” Adele said, “I love Drake. I love Drake so much. I even got the coat that's in the video - I got it delivered the other day, I ordered it. The red one.”
She continued, “I had a drink like three weeks ago [with] my best friends-in fact, it was to celebrate ‘Hello.’ And I was off my face because I don't really drink anymore, and they've got video of me dancing to [“Hotline Bling”] on a coffee table as well.”
Yes, that’s right, Adele has the red coat from the “Hotline Bling” video, and she has performed a drunken dance to it on top of a coffee table.
Anyway, this all seemed basically hypothetical, until Drake posted a photo himself yesterday, featuring cartoon versions of “Hello” Adele and “Hotline Bling” Drake (which could easily double as single art, if this remix ever does come to fruition).
so it’s still basically hypothetical now, but-given this is a cultural landscape that provides Gilmore Girls revivals and Jennifer Lawrence-Amy Schumer screenplays-it would not be altogether surprising if it happens.
