Arctic Monkeys Cover Drake

Check out their version of 'Hold On, We're Going Home'
Arctic Monkeys

Arctic Monkeys dropped past Radio 1's Live Lounge earlier today (September 17th) - and covered Drake.

Alex Turner has always had a way with words. The frontman's delivery owes as much to Tupac as it does to Morrissey, with the songwriter always admitting a debt to hip hop.

However this new cover version is still raising eyebrows. Fresh from notching up a record breaking number one with 'AM', Arctic Monkeys dropped past Radio 1's Live Lounge for a short session.

Picking some of the highlights from their new album, the Sheffield group also threw in a cover of Drake's recent single 'Hold On, We're Going Home'.

Rhythmically dextrous, it's Turner's delivery which most impresses - honest, succinct and to the point, the frontman retains the smooth-as-butter flow which Drake made his own.

Watch the performance below.
