Drake hopes his newest track will end up a “timeless” wedding song.
The rapper’s song Hold On, We’re Going Home is the latest single from his upcoming third studio album Nothing Was the Same.
Drake and producer Noah “40” Shebib imagine the track to be played at nuptials in years to come.
“It’s me and 40 just channeling our Quincy Jones/Michael Jackson production duo. 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 explained to MTV News.
“It’s not a rap record. 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 ten years or that people that are away from their families in the army could listen to. Something that just [has] timeless writing, timeless melody. So I did it with the group that we signed to OVO called Majid Jordan.”
The 26-year-old and producer 40 launched record label OVO Sound in early 2012. Drake is convinced the collaboration of talent on the record will make his newest track a resounding success.
“[The group is] not Magic Jordan. It’s Majid Jordan, even though Magic Jordan is a really cool name,” he smiled, before adding: “Majid is singing on the record with me and Jordan is his production partner. It’s a great record. I’m nervous and excited and all these things about it.
“I’ve never really put out a record like this before, so we’ll see how it goes.”
