Drake was honored as Billboard’s Artist of the Decade and the title is well deserved. Drake has proved to conquer his place in the Hip-Hop/Rap industry. The Canadian native has made history in music, film, and even fashion. I am glad that Aubrey Graham is being given his flowers even though his presence is never going away. Below I listed the top Drake songs to listen to whether you are over the moon, an emotional wreck, or you just want to add more songs to your playlist.
1. After Dark
Drake is known for being an ear for underrated classics. Whether its an sample from the past or present, Drake’s talent to make samples his own is impressible. “The Suite Theme”, by Maxell, is used as a sample for “After Dark”. The recording serves as the intro and the outro for the song. Besides the sample, Drake puts his singing talent to the limit in this song. You can’t forget Ty Dollars Sign feature completing the song like a perfect gift.
2. Find Your Love
Whether you are a new or an OG Drake fan, “Find Your Love” is an undeniable classic. While listening to this song, you can hear the emotion in Drake’s voice. The music video for “Find Your Love” unlocks memories of Drake during the beginning of superstardom. This music video should remind everyone to never chase after a girl around the world. It may turn out that she may be a drug lord’s girlfriend.
3. No Guidance
Even though this song is a Drake feature, “No Guidance” remains a summer anthem since its release. Chris Brown and Drake always bring fire when they collaborate, but “No Guidance” is their best collaboration to date. I am still surprised that this song did not receive a Grammy. Playing this song with the windows down in the car will make you feel amazing.
4. Say Something
If Timbaland and Drake collabed again, I am not sure that my ears can handle it. In “Say Something” Drake slides on the beat with his vocals. Even though Timbaland produced this bop, Drake makes the song his with his energy. If you are a new Drake fan, this is a song that you need to listen to.
5. Girls Love Beyoncé
My nickname for Drake is going to be the “Hook King”. I know I stated that he kills every hook, but “Girls Love Beyoncé” proves that Drake is so versatile in his own lane. While barely even mentioning Beyoncé in this song, he is singing his heart out to his own Beyoncé. The song features James Fauntleroy who proves to be the perfect feature on this song.
6. Best I Ever Had
I can not even describe “Best I Ever Had” in one word. This nostalgia in this song alone reminds everyone around the world that Drake is really the artist of the decade. Whether you listen to the song with your friend or significant other, “Best I Ever Had” will make you feel on top of the world.
7. Mr. Right Now
Every time Drake and Metro Boomin work together, it is instantly a hit. Even though I knew that Drake and Metro Boomin would be a great duo, 21 Savage came and murdered the beat. “Mr. Right Now” is the song to listen to when feeling upbeat. Even if you’re feeling down, this song will make you feel hype instantly. Drake and 21 Savage slid on this beat and brought their own flavor.
