"You did it to yourself boy. I won't let nobody disrespect my city or what I stand for," Drake proclaimed, opening up the 6ixth annual OVO Fest in Toronto last night by performing 'Back To Back' with a surfeit of internet memes laced across the projector behind him as if the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre was the new Summer Jam Screen.

OVO Fest this year was a live male version of Taylor Swift's 'Bad Blood' video and Meek Mill was Katy Perry. But perhaps the jokes are too funny and the strategic timing behind Drake's meticulous moves through the ongoing Meek Vs Drake beef make it easy to forget that this whole thing started with accusations that the 6 God doesn't write his own raps - an allegation he's never denied. But whatever the case, the internet doesn't care about the truth at this point, made opulently clear by their popular opinion and the rowdy Toronto crowd that chanted "Fuck Meek Mill" at OVO Fest.

It's also evident that Drake won the battle and the war against his MMG opponent while brushing off any accountability for his accusations at all, an impressive feat. But Drake's biggest win this summer wasn't that he made the world laugh with OVO Fest antics, or that he bodied his adversary with back-to-back disses or even that he united a group of A-List artists, actors and athletes to his stage in Toronto like Swift and her VMA-nominated femme-power video. It was the release of his new song 'Hotline Bling.'

Memorialized as a remix of 'Cha Cha', from Virginia-artist D.R.A.M, which uses a catchy Super Mario World sample, 'Hotline Bling' received the Drake touch and was released as one of the summer's hottest anthems via OVO Sound Beats 1 Radio. (The Drake touch being the habit of plucking an up-and-coming artist's hit on its way up, remixing them and making them his own, ahem, Migos' 'Versace', Makonnen's 'Tuesday', Fetty Wap's 'My Way' etc.) Drake's done it again and it's nearly impossible to enjoy a day on a patio or night out without hearing the 6 God's catchy crooning about a disintegrated relationship and all the feels that go along with it. Drake emotes like only Drake can on the up-tempo release. Drake gets personal like only Drake can throughout the conversational bars. And the R&B-savvy song has more radio and top 40 potential than any of his recent releases on If You're Reading This It's Too Late, which ensures the single's successful future.

'Hotline Bling' is an unassuming hit and Drake's greatest victory in the Meek-gate fiasco not because he did anything different, but because he remained the same. Doing the most through diss-tracks or acting brand new through war-ready antics at his hometown festival are great for entertainment, but cheap larks wear off with the music world's short attention span. 'Hotline Bling' has promising longevity as a smash single, while proving to Drake-doubters and those holding Meek Mill's accusations at a serious regard, that despite scandal, Drizzy's going to continue to dominate the charts - whether it was his own songwriting that got him there or not.
