This Mashup Of 'Hotline Bling' Is Proof 'Dominican Drake' Is Real

Drake's spirit animal is obviously el tiguere.

Drake is Dominican and he can no longer hide it.

That's how some of his Latino fans see it, at least. In fact, since the 28-year-old artist first began to show his appreciation for all things Dominican, many have theorized Drake may have a personal connection to the Caribbean country. 

And the Dominican Drake movement reached new heights Monday night, after the artist released the much anticipated video for "Hotline Bling." Drake's dance moves in the video inspired a slew of memes and mashups that have flooded news feeds and Twitter feeds.

For his Dominican Drake devotees the moves were simply more proof of the artist's true make-believe heritage. To make their case, fans masterfully paired his dancing with merengue and bachata songs. But it was this mashup of Drake dancing to Elvis Crespo's "Suavemente" that took the Dominican cake. 

Let your Dominican flag fly, Drake!
