Since stepping into the game back in 2009 when he was first signed to Lil Wayne’s record label Young Money, Drake has continuously been dominating the music charts. From a popular TV show to making and selling hit records, Drake has definitely stolen the hearts of many. Here are a few reasons why he’s so great.
- Record Breaker
- After releasing his album Scorpion in late June, the Canadian rapper showed the world that he was not only a consistent hit maker but that he could hang with the best of them. He recently broke the Beatles historic record when seven of his singles charted the Billboard Top 10.
2. Great Songwriter
Despite the ghostwriting allegations, Drake has proven to be an amazing songwriter, his skill has managed to get him this far in his career. Our boy has written hit songs for artists like Alicia Keys, Jamie Foxx, Kanye West, Rita Ora, and the queen herself Beyonce.
- 3. He’s One With His Feelings
- A man who can talk about his feelings is beyond sexy, and Drake has been doing it since he stepped on the scene. He’s never been scared to share his feeling about past relationships, heartbreaks, or even his issues with his parents. He’s done it in songs like Find Your Love, CeCe’s Interlude, Doing It Wrong, Marvin’s Room, I Get Lonely Too, Shot For Me, Karaoke, and Take Care. (Many of these happen to be some of my personal favorites).
4. Dope Vocals
- Many people have criticized Drake over the years feeling that he should stay in his lane and just stick to rap, but he has proven that he can rap and sing very well. He’s given his fans some dope R&B records like One Dance, Hotline Bling, Hold On We’re Going Home, Controlla, the list goes on!
- 5. He Is A Hit Maker!!!
Say what you want about Drake but it’s one thing you can’t deny, and that’s the fact that he makes banga’s! Drake has remained a prevalent figure in the rap industry, you can’t turn on the radio or go to a club or party without hearing one of his songs or him featured on someone else’s. Whether you love him or hate him, Drake is here to stay and he’ll keep giving us more chunes for our head tops!
