Riff: Drake – “Hold On, We’re Going Home”

Sep 23, 2013

I got my eyes on you, you’re everything that I see/I want your hot love and emotion endlessly/I can’t get over you, you left your mark on me/I want your high love and emotion endlessly

from Hold On, We're Going Home lyrics by Drake

If Ellen DeGeneres was a rapper she’d be Drake. Both are made for daytime TV and both love to swoon the ladies. Unfortunately for Drake, Ellen drives to the bucket harder. This call for “hot love and emotion” isn’t a rap song at all, it’s a limp handshake in the form of a soft ballad; [LISTEN].
