The chances are you’ve probably seen one of the hundreds of "Hotline Bling" parodies currently circulating the internet, whether its Donald Trump dancing on SNL or Mr Bean in a white room.

The first time you saw Drake bust out them drunk-Dad-at-a-wedding grooves, you probably thought “Drake can’t seriously dance like that, can he?”

Well, ladies and gentlemen, it turns out Drake really does dance like that.

On two separate occasions, once court-side at an Los Angeles Clippers basketball game at the Staples Centre, and again in Vegas, the hip-hop star recreated his now famous dance moves.

Last Month, rapper D.R.A.M. claimed the song was stolen from him, writing on Twitter: “Yeah, I feel I got jacked for my record.”

Meanwhile, Drake wrote on Instagram: “No accolades really matter to me other than the fact that I have never had a billboard number one. If I get my first number one during the month of October it will be the biggest moment of my career to date.”

"Hotline Bling" has yet to top the Billboard 100, with Adele’s surprise release of Hello and Justin Bieber’s Sorry shooting past it to number one and two.
