Whether it’s inspired by the famous “In The Air Tonight” sequence on “Miami Vice,” Scarface or Grand Theft Auto: Miami, Drake channels 1985 on South Beach in his visual narrative for “Hold On (We’re Going Home).” This big-budget video featuring some acting from A$AP Rocky begins in a lookalike to Tony Montana’s club (and the water-tracking shot that Mobb Deep and Nas also replicated from Brian De Palma), features cream suits, ’80s Range Rovers, and a beautiful damsel in distress—all playing well against Drake’s canned percussion from the crooning cut. Can you predict the outcome?
