4. "Hold On We're Going Home," Drake feat. Majid Jordan
Starting with his sharp transition from child star to Cash Money rapper, Drake is no stranger to defying expectations in his career. His music fluctuates breezily between hip hop and pop, singing and rap. Yet, when the YMCMB standout dropped this single in late summer, even those of us accustomed to Drake's musical left turns took notice. The mix of classic '80s pop with modern-day radio friendly beats is new even for this innovative artist.
