Drake Created ‘Hold On, We’re Going Home’ to Play at Weddings
Drake has everyone swooning over his just-released single, 'Hold On, Going Home.' Drizzy hopes the soul-drenched love ballad becomes a mainstay at future June weddings.
"It's not a rap record. It's not 'Versace,' it's not 'Started From the Bottom,'" Drake tells MTV News about the song, which will appear on his third album, 'Nothing Was the Same.' "In approaching this album I was like man, it would be great if we had a record that was played at weddings in 10 years or that people that are away from their families in the Army could listen to."
"Something that just [has] timeless writing, timeless melody. So I did it with the group that we signed to OVO called Majid Jordan," he adds.
Undoubtedly, the song has the potential to become a Drake fan favorite if not his next chart-topping hit single.
The Noah "40" Shebib-produced track sounds lush and melodic with the Young Money superstar's light falsetto caressing every romantic lyric about his one true love.
"It's me and 40 just channeling our Quincy Jones-Michael Jackson production duo," says Drake. "Obviously no offense to the greats, I know we're not anywhere near that -- it's just us kinda doing our thing, humbly attempting."
"It's a great record. I'm nervous and excited and all these things about it," he continues. "I've never really put out a record like this before, so we'll see how it goes."
Drake is adding the final touches to 'Nothing Was the Same,' which arrives in stores Sept. 17.
