After last weekend’s OVO Festival proved how many awesome friends Drake has, we kind of expected his next release from Nothing Was the Same would be an insane seven-minute posse cut featuring the Weeknd and/or Kanye West and/or 2 Chainz. Instead we got this woozy, devotional, butter-smooth mixtape-closer “Hold On, We’re Going Home,” featuring help from Majid Jordan and ’80s-tinged production from Nineteen85 and Noah “40″ Shebib. It’s completely out of left field but it’s great, proving the extent of Drake’s versatility. Nothing Was the Same is out September 17.
