Derek Hough Wrote 'Hold On' Almost 5 Years Ago

Derek Hough stopped by Build Series to promote his brand new single, “Hold On”, in New York City on Wednesday (November 1).

The singer and entertainer chatter with Billboard just as the video dropped this morning, and revealed that he had written the song five years before.

Derek has teamed up with the Movember Foundation for the song.

“I got very emotional about it [with the recent suicide of Chester Bennington] and I just immediately called my friend and say, ‘Hey listen, I really want to record this song and redo it and create a video and go out there and talk about this.’”

Derek adds, “It seems to be something that’s becoming more common and, especially with men. When I actually dove into the statistics of it, it was even more staggering. 500,000 men a year are taking their own lives, and three out of four suicides are men. It just got me motivated, it got me inspired, and it got me to talk about this.”
