5 best Drake Songs to truly appreciate the man

Posted by sarah | October 22, 2015 | arch-MUSIC

Love him or hate him, you can’t escape Drake. All your friends love him. His Instagram comments from fans are filled with thirst traps, and let’s face it, no DJ set is complete without a Drake song added to the playlist.

It’s been a busy year for the singer/rapper. He released two surprise mixtapes, the certified platinum “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late” and the collaborative project with Future titled “What A Time To Be Alive”. And believe it or not, he’s eyeing his next release for early 2016. Considering the influence the Toronto native has had on the current state of music over the past 8 years, it’s impressive to see that he’s still at the top of the “mood music” genre that he helped shape. Most young adults consider his music to be the soundtrack to their lives. He’s a modern day trailblazer and his track record is undeniable.

1. Drake – Marvins Room

I remember hearing this song for the first time and thinking to myself how smart the concept of the song was. Turning the embarrassing drunk dial/text into a song? Genius! The amount of covers this song received because of how popular it was? Not so much.

2. Drake –  Started From The Bottom 

Quite possibly one of Drake’s finest videos. The first single released from the highly anticipated third album. Catchy lyrics and the beat hits hard!

3. Drake – Know Yourself

Hands down one of the biggest Hip Hop songs of 2015. If you haven’t seen his Coachella performance with literally thousands of people screaming “running through the 6 with my woes” then you won’t understand.

4. Drake – Hold On, We’re Going Home

You know you have a hit record when people make it their wedding song.

5. Drake – The Motto

The dude popularized the expression Y.O.L.O and is responsible for the production of some of fashions worst illegal merchandise (YOLO BRO T-shirts, baseball caps, pants. You name if it prints it works)
