Drake surprised fans and critics worldwide when he released “Hold On We’re Going Home” in the middle of August. The song was the second to surface off his new album Nothing Was The Same, but unlike its predecessor (“Started From The Bottom”) the track featured absolutely no rap. If anything, the song channeled 80s pop and added a twist of modern RnB to spice things up, showcasing a completely different side of the Canadian artist than many heard seen in some time. Fans were reluctant to accept the change at first, but the single has gone on to become a major success, and now one of hip-hop’s finest has delivered a killer remix to keep genre fans happy
