You may know Rotimi as the creator behind “Lotto” and from his role in 50 Cent’s popular Starz show Power. These days, he's quickly becoming a talent to pay attention to.

While Rotimi doesn’t have that much music out yet, he just released a remix to Drake’s “Hotline Bling” that we could seriously get behind. The video finds him creating the song during a late-night studio session. Instead of singing “cellphone,” he flips it to “house phone.” The story unravels as Rotimi illustrates a time when he was hooking up with someone, but her parents didn’t like him. So, he moves on and eventually becomes famous.
