"Phone Ring"

The definition of this term is actually completely black and white. Drake's words actually translate directly.

Hotline = Phone
Bling = Ring

One could state he is singing "I know when that cell phone ring, that can only mean one thing". It just so happens that in this song he is referring to a booty call as is affirmed by the mention of "late night when you need my love"

The term itself does NOT mean "booty call". Your hotline could bling any time of the day and it could be your boss or even your mother.
"Yo dude are you ever gonna answer that? I can hear your hotline blingin from the other room over and over ."

"Nah man its my Lil sister, she's buggin me for a ride but I cbf right now."

Drake sings this when talking about his phone ringing. "When that hotline bling" just means "When that phone rings" in a black-culture way. He sings about how he knows when his phone rings late at night and the caller is the particular female character from the song, that it can only mean it's a booty call.

Contrary to the other ultra-white definition on here, "Hotline bling" is NOT just some term for "booty call", not even close. It's only relevant in this one song.
Dude 1: Damn man your hotline hasn't stopped blingin since we left!

Dude 2: Yeah dude it's the bossman, he keeps asking me to work this weekend. Only he can make dat hotline bling like that... I ain't takin no calls!
