Drake has been on point when it comes to rap records lately. After giving us certified bangers such as “Started From The Bottom” and “All Me,” Drizzy wanted to venture into uncharted territory with his official single for Nothing Was The Same.
During a interview with MTV News before releasing “Hold On, We’re Going Home,” he imagined the song playing at weddings in 10 years.
“It’s me and 40 just channeling our Quincy Jones/Michael Jackson production duo,” he said. “Obviously no offense to the greats, I know we’re not anywhere near that — it’s just us kinda doing our thing, humbly attempting.”
He also expressed that the track is not necessarily hip-hop, but wanted to make something that had “timeless writing, timeless melody.”
“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,” he said. “So I did it with the group that we signed to OVO called Majid Jordan.”
Producer Noah “40″ Shebib was responsible for the track’s sonic direction. Since 2009’s So Far Gone, 40 has been integral piece of the puzzle for Drake’s sound.
