There is a battle between OVO affiliates Drake and The Weeknd. Drake's "Hotline Bling" and The Weeknd's "The Hills" are the top two tracks on the Billboard Hot 100 and Drake really wants his first number one Billboard track.

"The Hills" shot back up the charts after two remixes one featuring Eminem and the other featuring Nicki Minaj.

It's one of the standout singles off of The Weeknd's Beauty Behind The Madness album, along with the radio hit "Can't Feel My Face." Drake was one of the first artists to take note and promote The Weeknd from his project House of Balloons, now, he is in a battled with the very artist that helped him coin the OVOXO term.

"I spend my life trying to make waves for the city I am from. No accolades really matter to me other than the fact that I have never had a Billboard number one," said Drake in a lengthy Instagram post.

"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) and if you are looking for me on that particular evening I will be passed out in the water slide that connects to our pool. I love you and thank you for these memories.

I always love the moment right before it happens more than when it actually happens. So thank you...even if it doesn't."

Drake's "Hotline Bling" was an individual single released earlier this summer. So far, Drake has released a couple of diss tracks, and two mixtapes with If You're Reading This It's Too Late and the collaboration tape with Future titled, What A Time To Be Alive.

Apparently, Drake is not done releasing music in 2015.

His highly anticipated Views From The 6 has yet to receive a release date but has been slated for this year. Recently, Drizzy posted a photo of him and his long time friend and producer, Noah "40" Shebib.

"The teacha. I could sit and watch this guy work on songs for the rest of my life and be content," said Drake in the caption of the photo.

Hopefully the photo means that Views From The 6 is in the final mixing stage and might be ready for release soon.

However, Drake's projects for 2015 have all come out of nowhere so until the 6 God himself releases the album or information regarding its release, fans will still be held on standby.

In the meantime, Drake is going to concentrate on getting "Hotline Bling" to number one on the Billboard 100.
