Jimmy Fallon Sang “Hotline Bling” as Bob Dylan, and It May Be Our Best “Hotline Bling” Cover Yet 

On Wednesday, Jimmy Fallon supplied us with what was perhaps the greatest “Hotline Bling” cover yet—sung in the style of Bob Dylan. Fallon put on some folksy duds, added a harmonica, and sang Drake’s forlorn lyrics with Dylan’s unmistakable drawl.

Beyond Fallon’s very persuasive Dylan impression, Drake’s lyrics work impressively well layered over Dylan’s rhythms and melodies. When the world looks back on the Era of the Hotline Bling Cover, it’ll be hard to forget this one, which should forever be remembered as “Tangled Up in Bling.”
