January 14, 2016

It's a new year, but "Hotline Bling" is still in the top five on the Hot 100, and thus the tributes keep rolling in. The latest comes from Jimmy Fallon, who channeled Bob Dylan in his rendition of Drake's smash—meaning that he donned a hat and harmonica, strummed his guitar a lot, and played up the raspy side of his voice. "Our performance tonight was LIVE," he wrote on Twitter. "For real—this was live."

"Hotline Bling" has been on the Hot 100 for 23 weeks; it's currently sitting at No. 4 behind more recent releases from Adele and Justin Bieber. According to Billboard, it has also been No. 1 on the Hot Rap/R&B Songs Chart for 11 weeks, and No. 1 on the Hot Rap Songs Chart for 16 weeks.
