Drake takes it 80s Miami gangsta style for new video.
Following the release of Nothing Was The Same, Tuesday this week, Drake just dropped the visual to the album’s lead single.
The longform video is slowly becoming the standard with every other artist trying to capture a cinematic feel in the visual accompaniment for the singles. The Majid Jordan-assisted “Hold On, We’re Going Home” music video, is a throwback to the 80s Miami gangsta scene. During a celebration in an upmarket club – hosted by supporting star and rapper, A$AP Rocky – Drake gets a phone call demanding a ransom exchange for the freedom of his girl. Drake and his crew make it to the negotiation except their ransom comes in firearms as opposed to cash-filled briefcases. The shoot out scene is reminiscent of those of the Bad Boys film franchise and, in isolation, you would be forgiven for thinking it was cut from a film.
The new ballad by the rapper alone should be enough of an impetus to get you to purchase Nothing Was The Same. As an added incentive, check out Drake’s 7-minute shortfilm to go with it.
