Drake-Hold On, We're Going Home ft. Majid Jordan

drake-hold-on-were-going-home
Drake’s singing again, and if you listen closely, you can almost hear the sound of thousands of female Drake fans simultaneously superglueing pictures of Drake to their underwear.

A rough radio version leaked earlier, but here goes the official stream, courtesy of the man himself. It’s actually quite interesting to have Drake back in R&B/pop mode; call it novelty, but he does these efforts so rarely these days that it’s a nice surprise when he does. It’s incredibly poppy and nothing I’ll likely listen to after a week, but his hypnotising vocals are undeniably catchy, and the bedrock of what is a surefire mainstream hit- clearly, his previous singles didn’t quite crash the chart party as he would have liked (even if they were far more impressive to the hip-hop audience), and this is clearly his safety option to ensure he shifts some numbers when his album lands in September. It’s not quite as “R&B” as some of his previous singing-oriented work, and seems to make little attempt to hide that, but pop fans could probably do a lot worse than this.

On a seperate note, for those after something a little more R&B, may I recommend Drake’s signee PARTYNEXTDOOR’s surprisingly enjoyable (I say that because it’s Autotuned) recent album.
