Songwriter of the Year Dev Hynes Covers Drake’s ‘Hold On We’re Going Home’

+

Dev Hynes, aka Blood Orange, the man behind two of our favorite songs of the past year, Sky Ferreira‘s “Everything Is Embarrassing” and Solange’s “Losing You,” took a break from dropping perfect musical gems from his dome to lay down a cover of someone else’s. In this case it’s Drake’s “Hold On We’re Going Home,” which Hynes turns from a wide-open, plaintive R&B crooner into a tightly-wound, bass-slapping funk blast with some scorching Prince-like soloing.
