<![CDATA[Behind the Hit: Hotline Bling! The sample behind the groove.]]> Wed, 04 Nov 2015 17:23:15 +0000

DRAKE’s new video broke the internet with those dance moves just asking to be MEME-D. But the tune is catchy and the groove is unique. And it's all because of a guy named Timmy Thomas. Listen to his 1972 soul single "Why Can't We Live Together" below, and see if you hear something familiar.

Drake's producers took a slice of this tune, pitched it up 2 semitones, and sped it up roughly 30%. That's the core of the organ and underlying drum machine that forms the groove. From there, an 808 kick, clap snare, and triangle are added, with some bass added for the bridge.

Just add in some silly dance moves, and a hit is born.
