Watch Gwen Stefani and Mike Tyson murder Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’
Feeding the internet’s seemingly insatiable appetite for ‘Hotline Bling’ memes and covers both Gwen Stefani and Mike Tyson have stepped up to add their unique touches to Drake’s hit on Jimmy Fallon. Although sadly it wasn’t a duet.
Stefani and her fellow judges from The Voice —Pharrell, Blake Shelton, and Adam Levine – were on hand to play “Spin the Microphone” with Fallon covering ‘Oops… I Did it Again’, ‘YMCA’, and ‘It Takes Two’. None of the performances would justify spinning your chair, but Stefani’s version of ‘Hotline Bling’ with Shelton doing some kind of Nick Offerman impersonation is the thing of karaoke bar nightmares.
Later in the show Fallon showed Mike Tyson a meme posted on Instagram by Questlove that mocked his lisp – “You uthed to call me on the thell phone” – prompting the boxer to sing a bizarre and disturbingly rowdy cover of the song.
