Drake is flying high on the success of "Hotline Bling" and he's making his way towards a career milestone thanks to the record. However, before the Toronto rhymer dropped his single, D.R.A.M. had the Internet buzzing with his track "Cha Cha." Both songs sound eerily similar and following the release of the "Hotline Bling" video, the up-and-coming Virginia artist tweeted about Drizzy jacking his record.

Ironically, Drake gifted fans with a new visual on the same night of D.R.A.M.'s first Toronto performance. He took to Twitter admitting that his excitement about the performance was dampened by comparisons of the two tracks.

"Just performed in Toronto for the 1st time tonight and it was bittersweet," he wrote. "Sweet cus I’m out here sharing my music, my sound with the people..Bitter though, cus after my performance all I’m seeing is Cha Cha/Hotline Bling comparisons on my timeline."

D.R.A.M.'s "Cha Cha" first exploded to popularity back in May when Beyoncé shared a clip of herself dancing to the song on Instagram. Drake released "Hotline Bling" during his Beats 1 OVO Sound radio show at the end of July. The song has since become a fan favorite and one of the year's most covered tracks.

"Hotline Bling" is on the verge of pushing Drizzy towards a career milestone: earning his first No. 1 single as the main artist. The track moved 3-2 on the latest Billboard Hot 100 (dated Oct. 24). He recently posted on social media that topping the Hot 100 would be the "biggest moment" of his career.

"I spend my life trying to make waves for the city I am from [Toronto]. No accolades really matter to me other than the fact that I have never had a billboard number one," Drake posted on Instagram. "If I get my first number one during the month of October it will be the biggest moment of my career to date (in my mind)."

Twitter sparked a debate on whether or not "Hotline Bling" is in fact a sample of "Cha Cha." Note: Both tracks sample Timmy Thomas' "Why Can't We Live Together." Check out what's being said below.
