Albeit one of the most talked about rap artists presently, Drake is somewhat inevitable for music listeners. Whether you like his music or despise it, you can’t boldly say you’ve never heard a Drake song before. The musician is a Canadian, popular for his ability to fuse global genres into rap and pop. There’s a lot to pick from when it comes to Drake, but here, we’ve narrowed down a few that are a must-listen.
Nice For What
“Motivational and aggressive” would be nice words to describe this masterpiece. Drake lets us know we’re amazing and there’s no reason to settle for less despite pressure around because really, nobody sends your dad.
Life Is Good
One recurring feature with Drake is bragging and in every respect, he’s allowed to. If not for anything, because he created ‘Life Is Good’. The beat starts with drums and a quick snare which switches up into more pronounced percussion and a Future verse.
This record seems to be every DJ’s go-to party song and it’s because when you put Drake and dancehall in the same context, a fire song ensues.
From the Scorpion album, this is one track that highlights Drake’s ability as a rapper to address sociocultural issues. Drake takes his storytelling to another level and does so while ensuring he maintains harmony with the beat, still using his rhymes and deep lyrics.
Drake samples an old ballad that stands for unity amongst color and slanders it in the most sexual manner. Drake accurately depicts the scenario of a cheating girlfriend with this incredibly catchy song.
In My Feelings

This remains his biggest hit till date. An evergreen single and one of the biggest Toronto-Lagos collaborations ever.
Drake wears his crown as one of the leading faces of pop, and we assume it’s due to his dexterity in fusing genres from across the globe.
