It’s no secret that we’re all obsessed with Drake’s latest single, Hold On, We’re Going Home. We’re not even going to tell you how many times we’ve listened to it (it’s probably over 100 times by now).
But it looks like we’re not the only ones who are huge fans of the Toronto rapper’s latest hit. UK indie-rockers the Arctic Monkeys have taken it upon themselves to reinterpret the song in a recent cover for BBC Radio 1 and we must admit that we’re just as obsessed with this cover as we are with the original.
The band nails the catchy rhythm while layering infectious guitar riffs and replicating the same bass line that bounces throughout the original track. Lead singer Alex Turner pulls of a flirtatious voice while singing, “I want your hot love and emotion endlessly.” We. Are. In. Love.
Someone here at MUCH even argued that this version trumps the original and though we won’t that far, we do give the Arctic Monkeys a solid A+ for this.
(DRAKE APPROVES, TOO)
