After OVO Fest, Drake sat down with MTV to talk on his new single ‘Hold On, We’re Going Home’. He said him and his producer 40 tried to recreate a Michael Jackson-Quincy Jones like sound for the song. He also talks on Majid Jordan, the duo who is featured on the song. He reveals that they are officially signed to OVO Sound. Check out their music here.
Above is the cover for the 16th Anniversary XXL Cover, and of course Drake is on the cover. Check out a piece of his article below, talking on his album, image, and competition.
I remember coming into this year thinking, “How am I going to cut through all these people and shine?” I’ve never been part of a year when so many legends are dropping projects. How am I going to be seen? I’m going to be like the kid waving in the background in the photo with all of his tall relatives. And, I guess, those were my initial thoughts, and not to say that I haven’t enjoyed some of the stuff that has come out this year, but it didn’t pan out the way I thought it was going to. I think I am going for it, to really establish what are murmurs or things being said quietly, “Um, I think that Drake might actually…” On September 17th I want people to be like, “Oh, we were right.”
