Drake’s “Nothing Was The Same” album is finally here for everyone to review. The album was released yesterday to much fanfare, even though it was leaked a week earlier. The Toronto native also gave fans a new visual from the album releasing a new video for “Hold On, We’re Going Home.” According to huffingtonpost.com:
“Drake dropped the visuals for ‘Hold On, We’re Going Home’ on Tuesday, the same day ‘Nothing Was the Same,’ the album that features the song, hits stores. The clip starts with Drake, A$AP Rocky and friends celebrating in a lounge of sorts. That gives way to candles, a kidnapping and lots of ‘Scarface’-like elements. Also: Drake in a balaclava.
The video is more gangster than love story, which was unexpected due to the nature of “Hold On, We’re Going Home.” However the violence in the story is fundamentally driven by love, since Drake and his crew are avenging the kidnapping of his girlfriend.
As Drake makes his media rounds, he’s been doing a plethora of interviews touching on many topics. In Drizzy’s latest sit down with Angie Martinez, their conversation ranged from Jay Z’s influence, his relationship with Young Money, to Kendrick Lamar’s Control verse. According to complex.com:
“Drake’s been making the rounds to promote his new album, Nothing Was The Same, which is out today, and his latest stop was Hot 97. Today he paid Angie Martinez a visit to discuss, among other things, YOLO polos. In part two, he shared what he’s been listening to lately (Chicago rappers Lil Reese and Lil Herb, as well as A$AP Ferg), clear the air about his relationship with the rest of YMCMB, discuss competition on Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Control’ and talk about working with Jay Z.
“In a third segment, he also shared thoughts on being himself, getting acting tips from Will Smith, wearing his Jaden Smith shirt and his thoughts on having a real relationship with someone. ‘I’m ready to start building,’ Drake explained.”
