Just let it be, man.
Posting strictly for the name. The song’s not bad. On the contrary, it’s good.
Last week was ridiculous; being in season with four exams in one week isn’t really that ideal. For the most part, while my nose was pressed to computer screens and books, I listened to five songs on repeat, so now that the madness is over, it’s quite the relief to have the time to find new tracks. One of the first things I came across was this cover of “Hold On We’re Going Home”. The fact that I had heard this singer once before, in an entirely different genre, (“Vagabond” by Mandy Lee) only added to this song’s intrigue. This version of “Hold On We’re Going Home” may not be the most incredible, as the singer’s voice fluctuates more than I typically enjoy; however, I more than respect the different, yet still thorough approach the group took the pop-hit. Enjoy.
I’m no Drake fan but this is easily the best song I’ve heard him on. And that’s probably just because Lil Wayne (the good kind) is on it, too.
Donnis is an artist we’ve featured here on Beatspill before, but one I’ve never personally explored. I found this song through searching for songs produced by T-Minus, a DJ from Ontario, after hearing his production on the beat for Kendrick Lamar’s “Swimming Pools (Drank)”. After looking into his works, I found that his recent resume of production is rich with Young Money, producing five tracks off of Drake’s album Take Care (“The Motto”, “HYFR”, “Make Me Proud”, “We’ll Be Fine”, and “Underground Kings”). He also has upcoming works with artists such as Big Sean, A$AP Rocky, Pusha T & Lil Wayne, and his caliber of beats is only getting better. As for Donnis, you should listen to his mixtape Southern Lights, which was released April 2011 and features the talents of CyHi Da Prynce, Young Dro, & XV.
