Drake Says ‘Hold On’ Is ‘Not A Rap Record,’ But A Wedding Song

'I've never really put out a record like this before, so we'll see how it goes,' Drake tells MTV News of Nothing Was the Same single.

After dropping lyrical gems on recent releases like “All Me,” Drake gave us a taste of the variety on his upcoming album Nothing Was The Same with “Hold On, We’re Going Home,” a track that he and producer Noah “40” Shebib imagine being played at weddings in 10 years.

“It’s me and 40 just channeling our Quincy Jones/Michael Jackson production duo,” Drake told MTV News. “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 not a rap record,” he added. “It’s not ’Versace,’ it’s not ’Started From the Bottom.’ 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.”
