  • Ok you've seen the thread about singles that killed the hype of an album, but what about some singles that started a career, elevated it to the next level, or helped the artist pull off a comeback?

    Here's a good one:

    I feel like people started to take 21 Savage way more seriously after this song... everybody agreed it's good even people who didn't like his style at first

    I think Hotline Bling is what took Drake from being the biggest rapper in the world to arguably biggest musician in the world.

    The day the music video dropped it felt like a f***ing worldwide event. And I'm not even a fan of him like that.

    Up until that video none of my high school friends ever talked to me about Drake, then everybody asked me if I've seen the video, it was big as hell I wouldn't be surprised if my mom saw it

    I was in college when it dropped and it was similar energy around me too.

    the fact that it was an apple music exclusive for a few days also created mad hype. I remember so many twitch channels got suspended for playing the video there, there were leak websites posting up the video only for it to get taken down soon, etc.

    probably one of the best single releases in hip-hop history tbh.

    I actually remember subscribing for Apple Music just for the Drake Views stuff, I wanted to get it a week early

    that was f***ing nuts before exclusive streams were counted towards billlboard.

    tbh hotline bling was probably one of the driving forces behind those rules changing too. there was no doubt that it was the biggest song in the world, but the charts were too outdated to reflect that. what a time.
