Drake takes heat for Instagram blunder

Drake's "Hotline Bling" and Adele's "Hello" are arguably two of the biggest songs of the year. And both are about telephones. That's why artist Dave Valeza created an illustration of the two superstar musicians playing phone tag, reports CBC Arts.

On Sunday, Drake blasted out the drawing to his 16 million Instagram followers, albeit without mentioning Valeza. As CBC notes, he took to Twitter writing, "Someone famous posting my art without credit! Wish I could say I'm surprised that this keeps happening to artists."

Me and my main ting just coolin. 😍

He continued to Tweet about the situation as Drake's Instagram post raked in more than 400,000 like and 12,000 comments. But, it still hasn't been updated to credit Valeza.


Do you think Drake will eventually credit Valeza? Let us know in the comments.
