Riff: Drake feat. Majid Jordan – “Hold On, We’re Going Home”

Aug 26, 2013

It’s hard to do these things alone/Just hold on, we’re going home

from Hold On, We're Going Home lyrics by Drake feat. Majid Jordan

Big ups to Drake on his first single that isn’t ear-gaugingly awful. His syrupy, low pass filtered R&B ballad may borrow heavily from post-dubsteppers and post-housers on this lyrical dead end, but damn if it doesn’t feel good, like all the earnest, hedonistic things we do at the end of the night.
