Hotline Bling will never go away. Ever.

Canadian hip-hop artist Drake has promised to include Fortnite in the lyrics of a song if Epic Games puts a Hotline Bling emote into the game.

“When Epic gives me the emote, the Hotline Bling emote, then I’ll do it, but til’ then I’m on strike,” said Drake.

He is referencing an emote suggestion which came about after he and Twitch streamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins set a Twitch record playing Fortnite.

The stream peaked at around 630,000 viewers give or take.

Drake made the comment in another Fortnite stream with Ninja last night, per PCGamesN, but added the lyrical reference had to be done “the right way.”

You can watch the clip for yourself above, and mull over the possibility of another Hotline Bling emote, or a variation of it rather, being added to a game (Uncharted 4 multiplayer, Black Ops 3, Destiny, Heroes of the Storm).
