Drake's new, and first official single off Nothing Was The Same arrived yesterday with a sound that surprised most people. "Hold On We're Going Home" is distinctly r'n'b, but not just that, it's old school r'n'b-- not the new age sounds we're used to hearing from the likes of The Weeknd, The-Dream etc.

As it turns out, Drake and his frequent collaborator Noah '40' Shebib were going for a timeless feel. In an interview with MTV News discussing the single, Drake reveals they were trying to create something that would be played at weddings.

"It's me and 40 just channeling our Quincy Jones/Michael Jackson production duo," Drake said of the record. "Obviously no offense to the greats, I know we're not anywhere near that it's just us kinda doing our thing, humbly attempting."

"It's not a rap record," Drizzy continued. "It's not 'Versace,' it's not 'Started From the Bottom.' In approaching this album I was like man, it would be great if we had a record that was played at weddings in 10 years or that people that are away from their families in the army could listen to. Something that just [has] timeless writing, timeless melody. So I did it with the group that we signed to OVO called Majid Jordan."

He went on to explain who is Majid Jordan. Turns out they are two people, a singing/production duo. 

"[The group is] not Magic Jordan. It's Majid Jordan, even though Magic Jordan is a really cool name," Drake explained. "Majid is singing on the record with me and Jordan is his production partner. It's a great record. I'm nervous and excited and all these things about it."

"I've never really put out a record like this before, so we'll see how it goes," Drake added.

Listen to the record before. Do you think it'll be a success?
