Drake’s hit single “Hold On, We’re Going Home” has earned a new fan in rapper Shyne.
Shyne called Drake’s love ballad “one of the best R&B records ever” and even went as far as comparing the single to Marvin Gaye’s all-time classic “Let’s Get It On.”
“I promise U I played Drake’s hold on we’re going Home like a hundred times last night! From The car to the house!!!
“Drake’s Hold on is the type of record he’s perfect at & exactly what I need when Im getting ready to close the deal with gorgeous girl
“Drake’s hold on is on that Marvin Gaye lets get it on level!!! When of the best R&B records ever!!! A lot of children will be born to this,” he wrote.
Shyne may not be too far off in his assessment.
Drake revealed during an interview with MTV News he has “aspirations to be Marvin Gaye” when discussing third studio album “Nothing Was The Same.”
“I think the music I’m making is more concise; more clear,” he said. “I’ve been able to get my thoughts across a lot better on this album. ‘Take Care’ is a great album, but I listen to it and realize where I can do better. I think I’ve done better on this album.
“If you want to listen to Drake music for the rest of your life, I welcome it,” he continued. “I want you to listen to it. I want you to be a part of it. Just don’t ever be surprised when I’m singing or using melody. I’m doing this on this album. This album’s not some straight rap album. I’ll never do a straight rap album. I make songs for people. I have aspirations to be Marvin Gaye in the back of my head. I just want to sign world’s triumphs and problems on one record. Hopefully, ‘Nothing Was The Same,’ was the soundtrack to their life.”
Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home” took the number one spot on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs list, knocking off Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” 16-week reign.
Drake’s “Nothing Was The Same” album led the Billboard’s 200 list with 658,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It was the second largest sales week of 2014 behind Justin Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience,” which came in number one with 968,000 copies sold in March.
“Nothing Was The Same” marks Drake’s third number one LP.
