Though Drake may be one soft-ass hip-hop artist, there is no denying the catchy hooks on “Hold On We’re Going Home”?  The tune has risen to legendary status in the few short weeks that it has been available and even though Drake’s face should be sported on the side of every kleenex box, I’ll give this one to him.  It’s no surprise that endless (really, the never stop coming in) remixes have been produced of the track, it’s now about time we heard a proper cover.  Holy Ghost!, the New York electronic band that pumps out synth-pop jams for everyone to enjoy, has given Drake’s hit a proper reinterpretation.  The cover starts and it sounds unmistakably like “Get Lucky”, but after a few seconds you’ll realize that Holy Ghost! only added in a little funk to give this track new life.  The vocals wind-up sounding like a mix between Cherub and Chromeo, which is really never a problem.  Holy Ghost! hit all the right notes on their new cover, grab the free download courtesy of Holy Ghost! and their label DFA Records.
