We've seen all sorts of "Hotline Bling" covers and remixes, but this one's actually worth a listen, as it comes from the legend Erykah Badu. Ms. Badu reworks the production using live instruments, while still keeping the bouncy goodness of the original.
She basically keeps the theme of Drake's original, but switches the gender roles. Her remix runs for over 7 minutes and gets deeper and weirder as she goes. There's a genius recording of Badu's voicemail message about 4 minutes in.
It looks like the track might have inspired an entire project from Badu, as she's just announced that she has an upcoming mixtape called BUT U CAINT USE MY PHONE.
Y'all think Drizzy would approve? Can't deny the queen.
'Cuz ever since I left the city, you
Started getting dressed and going out more
Glasses of champagne out on the dance floor
Hanging with some dudes I've never seen before
You used to call me on my cell-u-lar de-vice at night
