Drake en español? Well, we already know Spanish girls love him like he’s Aventura. A new cover version of Drizzy’s viral hit “Hotline Bling” is unlike anything we’ve heard yet, and it's arrived courtesy of Karen Rodriguez , an American Idol finalist (season 10) and a songwriter credited on Romeo SantosFormula Vol. 2 album.
