"Cha Cha" Rapper Upset With Drake 'Hotline Bling' Comparisons

(Radio.com) Drake's "Hotline Bling" may have broken the internet, but it didn't break the spirit of D.R.A.M., the singer who made the popular "Cha Cha" song Drake used as a backing for "Hotline Bling."

In fact, he took to Twitter to talk to his fans about his feelings. And he didn't dance around the issue. "Just performed in Toronto for the 1st time tonight and it was bittersweet," D.R.A.M. said on Twitter early Tuesday (Oct. 20) morning.

"Sweet cus I'm out here sharing my music, my sound with the people. Bitter though, cus after my performance all I'm seeing is Cha Cha/Hotline Bling comparisons on my timeline."

Like "Cha Cha," "Hotline Bling" contains a sample from Timmy Thomas' "Why Can't We Live Together." When "Hotline Bling" first surfaced, the sound of "Cha Cha" was so prevalent that "Hotline" was dubbed a "Cha Cha" remix. Read more here.
