Postmodern Jukebox Is Back At It Again With A Vintage Version Of Drake's 'Hotline Bling'

Here's what it would be like if the song came out in the '40s.

The electrifying music collective Postmodern Jukebox has wowed us time and time again with vintage twists on beloved early 2000s hits such as Britney Spears' "Oops! ... I Did It Again" and R. Kelly's "Ignition (Remix)." Now, they've set the bar even higher by taking a more modern jam and giving it some '40s flair. 

It was about time they covered some Drake. In a swing jazz rendition of "Hotline Bling," singer Cristina Gatti blows us away with her velvety voice. The composition is much different than the original, but it all fits perfectly. 

"Since dance factored heavily into the original video (mostly thanks to what has been called Drake's "grandpa dancing"), choreographer Natalie Rose White and fellow dancer Musetta Rubin envisioned what the 1940's version of 'Hotling Bling' dancers would look like — rotary phones and all," Scott Bradlee, creator of Postmodern Jukebox, said on their website

While their dance moves aren't exactly as memorable as Drake's, we think they're still pretty great.
