Listen: Arctic Monkeys cover Drake’s “Hold On We’re Going Home”

Arctic Monkeys are known for their proclivity for cover songs, but I doubt anyone expected them to bust out a Drake track.

Believe it or not though, at the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge Thursday night, that’s exactly what happened. The band put its spin on “Hold On We’re Going Home,” Drake’s ’90s R&B vehicle off his upcoming album, “Nothing Was The Same.” That album will hit stores on Sept. 24, in case you missed the hundreds of shirts Drake and co have been sporting advertising it.

Check out the Arctic Monkeys cover Drake’s “Hold On We’re Going Home” at the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge below.

And here’s Drake’s original version:
