In the ad, Drake is seen busting his moves in a yellow-lit box for the "Hotline Bling" video, before some T-Mobile executives cut him off with a few simple changes to the lyrics, in order to plug their company.

Majid Jordan On Hot 97
Majid Jordan are finally stepping into the limelight, well at least, physically. The duo have been releasing music to a growing fanbase, under the OVO imprint since 2014, but they've been press-shy.

SNL decided to parody Drake's "Hotline Bling" video on the show this week, which seemed not only late, but unnecessary, considering the clip doesn't take itself very seriously as it is.
