Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and producer/musician Greg Kurstin shared the next installment in their The Hanukkah Sessions video series on Friday. This time around the duo offered up a cover of Drake’s “Hotline Bling.”

Grohl and Kurstin’s Hanukkah Sessions see the duo rolling out cover songs from a famous Jewish artist for each night of Hanukkah, which began on Thursday night and continues through Friday, December 18. Grohl and Kurstin kicked off the series on Thursday with The Beastie Boys classic “Sabotage” and now follow with “Hotline Bling,” the lead single from Drake’s 2016 album, Views.


Grohl manned the drum kit and sang on the Drake cover while Kurstin handled the song’s electronic elements. Read a note that accompanied the video below:

You might be surprised to learn that this superstar is… Canadian. He’s never hidden the fact that he was M.O.T. … so a generation of Jewish parents could tell their kids “if Drake took the time to study for HIS Bar Mitzvah, you can too.” Ladies and gentlemen…challah at your boy….DRAKE!
