One of Drake’s most popular songs for weddings Hold On, We’re Going Home was specifically designed to be a sweet, soulful tune played for people in love. Drake said that he wanted to create something with a “timeless melody,” so he recruited smooth R&B group Majid Jordan and poured out some lyrics from the heart.
That’s why I need a one dance
Got a Hennessy in my hand
One more time ‘fore I go
Higher powers taking a hold on me
This fun, peppy song will suit everything from the bouquet-toss to the “first dance” portion of the evening. With an upbeat chorus and lyrics that will encompass you with energy and love, One Dance will bring you to your feet and help your marriage get off on the right foot.
