Drake channels Marvin Gaye in his new song "Hold on We're Going Home," which he posted online today following a performance at last night's Ovo Fest. The track features smooth vocals and hints of disco as he sings "I want your hot love and emotion, endlessly." The tender song is set to appear on Drake's new album, Nothing Was the Same, due out September 17th.

The song is the latest in a string of songs Drake has released online in recent months. The Canadian singer and rapper posted "Started From the Bottom" in February, and has since released more tracks: "On My Way" came in June, followed a few days later by four other songs. Drake posted another new tune, "All Me," last week.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
