Drake - "Hold On, We're Going Home" video

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.

Nothing Was The Same is out today on Cash Money. Stream it here.

  1. Miami Vice ridiculous awesomeness.

  2. This shit is hair metal.

  3. Interesting idea, I think it probably could’ve been flushed out a bit more.

    That awkward moment in editing (4:50) when they make it seem like someone shot Drake in the head because everyone’s dressed the same.

    Im a bit perturbed by Rocky and this sleezy white guys (am I supposed to know who that is?) brown nosing of Aubrey but whatev.

    • I think one of the white guys is from Majid Jordan. At least he was with Drake when he was performing this song on Ellen.

    • What I want to know is why it suddenly became daylight at the end of the video when it was just the dead of night throughout the entirety of shoot out. It’s as if they just sit around, had a bonfire and partied for awhile surrounded by dead mobsters or something. This was a pretty unintentionally funny video. Drizzy just couldn’t convince me in the gun-wielding hero role. Sorry Drizzy! I still love this song to death, though.
