Drake – “Hold On, We’re Going Home” Video

By Tom Breihan / September 24, 2013

Hold On, We’re Going Home,” the big hit from Drake’s new album Nothing Was The Same, is a soft, sensitive new-wave love-ballad. So naturally, the video should culminate in a massive shipping-yard gun battle and a CGI explosion, right? Well, that’s what director (and Matrix cinematographer) Bill Pope has done with this grand, ridiculous video. The video takes place in 1985 Miami, and it has A$AP Rocky and the Chicago rapper Fredo Santana in supporting roles. The plot is basically what you’d find in a video game like Double Dragon: Dangerous thugs kidnap Drake’s girlfriend, so Drake and his friends have to fight to get her back. Watch the absurdity unfold below.
