Drake Drops New Single, ‘Hold On, We’re Going Home’: Listen Now

Drake has a new ditty.

Hours after his all-star OVO Festival in his hometown, Drake hit the radio Tuesday with a fresh release, “Hold On, We’re Going Home,” which sees the rapper depart from his usual hip-hop flow in favor of a pop-tinged R&B feel.

“I got my eyes on you/ You’re everything that I see/ I want your high love and emotion endlessly/ I can’t get over you/ You left your mark on me,” he croons in the opening verse. (The rest of the words are now available on Directlyrics.)

The smooth, synth-laced song shows a softer, more sensitive side of Drizzy, who’s known for the more boastful, beat-heavy rhymes of hits like “Started From The Bottom” or “All Me.”

The cut is the latest off his hotly-anticipated upcoming third LP, Nothing Was The Same, which also includes “Started From the Bottom,” “Jodeci Freestyle,” and “5AM in Toronto.”

Nothing Was The Same hits shelves on Sept. 17.
