Obama singing Hotline Bling has to be heard

"You used to call me on my cell phone…"

"...But then I became leader of free world and now secret service agents screen all my calls."

While we may never know what lyrical common ground Drake and Barack Obama share, this wonderful mashup proves that, while he should probably leave the songwriting alone (or to his wife Michelle), the leader of the free world is capable of singing the hell out of Hotline Bling.

The latest slice of genius from YouTube giant Baracksdubs, it embezzles enough lines from Obama's speeches to string together a whole video of the man crooning along to the biggest floor filler of the year. It's almost worth watching to see Obama's head imposed on Drake’s gyrating body, performing that now massively-meta dance routine.

Then again, we bet old Barack's mastered it already.
