On this week’s new track, “Hold On We’re Going Home,” Drake embraces the full potential of his R&B side. And to be honest, it fits him far better than his pseudo-thug/tough guy act.
Singing lines like, “Cus you’re a good girl and you know it / I know exactly who you could be,” over a slick disco beat seems natural. Especially compared to lyrics from “All Me,” which he released last week, “I ask to please excuse my table manners I was making room for the table dancers,” this is the smooth talking Drake — more Freddie Jackson than 2 Chainz. “Hold On We’re Going Home” is another of the many tracks Drake has released leading up to his new album, “Nothing Was the Same,” which is out on Sept. 17.
