About a week and a half ago, Drake released the synthy slow jam “Hold On We’re Going Home” online. Today, as an apparent lark, Blood Orange — otherwise known as Solange and Sky Ferreira producer Dev Hynes — covered the song and threw it up on Soundcloud. The Hynes version of the song is a whispery mid-’80s dance track, like something Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis might’ve produced for Janet Jackson in the Control era. And it’s pretty incredible that Hynes can throw something this gorgeous together — complete with blazing guitar solo — for fun. Download it below.
Blood Orage reportedly has a new album coming soon.
