Drake’s Albums Ranked: From Best to Worst

Since coming out with his first mixtape in 2006, Drake has been a force in the hip-hop game to be reckoned with. Drake caught the ears of the public by mixing relatable rap lyrics with melodic hooks of him singing. Each album tells a tale of where he is at the moment, personally or physically. From Houston to Toronto inspiration, Drake’s discography is as diverse as they come.

Here is a list of Drake’s best albums from best to worst.  You will see some classics on this list, some disappointments like Drake’s most recent album Views and many familiar collaborators such as Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and The Weeknd.


1. Take Care (2011)

Drake’s sophomore album Take Care is the album that earned Drake his first grammy for “Best Rap Album.” The win was received with criticism https://youtu.be/-zzP29emgpgbecause the album is mostly filled with Drake singing but nonetheless, it’s still a perfect mixture of R&B love songs and rap tracks. After his debut album Thank Me Later, Drake desperately needed an album that wouldn’t be cookie cutter in order to prove he wasn’t becoming manufactured by a music label. The result of Drake getting his swagger back was a number 1 album selling album that featured Nicki Minaj, The Weeknd, and Lil Wayne. Drake’s longtime producer 40 who disappeared a little during his debut album returned and created a masterpiece.

With the creation of Take Care, Drake did something many people are thankful for which is introducing the American public to The Weeknd. The singer is featured on “Over My Dead Body.” Which coined the phrase “loving the crew” as an ode to how people are loving the takeover of the Toronto sound in music. Drake and The Weeknd went on to perform the song at numerous festivals and the Toronto takeover was officially in full effect.

2. More Life (2017)

In an interview with DJ Semtex, Drake calls More Life “a playlist for your life.” Drake wants this 22 track album to flow seamlessly and give everyone who listens a good time. Now with the Spring and Summer on the horizon, there are plenty of tracks to get good vibes from and plenty of Instagram caption ideas. One song that stands out is “Passionfruit.” The beat has island inspiration and with lyrics like “Passionate from miles away/Passive with the things you say/ Passin’ up on my old ways/I can’t blame you now,” you are bound to groove with it. If you’re still in the mood to turn up then “Portland” featuring Quavo and Travis Scott is another great pick. Drake slows it down with songs like “Jorja’s Interlude” and “Teenage Fever” which samples Jennifer Lopez‘s hit song “If You Had My Love.” There’s no actual J.Lo and Drake collaboration which puts to rest that they were working on music together while dating. Even though More Life is Drake’s newest album it is definitely one of his best.

More Life features British artist Skepta, Giggs, and Jorja Smith. There are also appearances by Young Thug, Kanye West, PARTYNEXTDOOR and Black Coffee.

3. Nothing was the Same (2013)

The great thing about Drake’s third album Nothing was the Same is that it was promoted with immediate energy. “Started From the Bottom” was the lead single off Nothing was the Same and with lyrics like “started from the bottom, now we’re here!/Started from the bottom now the whole team here!” it’s hard not to get hype for NWTS. This album is Drake’s most cohesive work to date. The songs reflect the album, Drake understands he’s now a veteran and proves it by verbally sparring with Jay Z on “Pound Cake.”

Previous Drake mixtapes or albums had a few interludes like on So Far Gone and Take Care. NWTS had none, it was proving to any doubters that he was not only a pop star but can still rap circles around anyone.  “Tuscan Leather” was a 6-minute freestyle where he boasts, “ I’ve reached heights Dwight Howard couldn’t reach.” There are still soft moments like on Furthest Thing featuring Jhene Aiko where Drake gets introspective with, “Somewhere between psychotic and iconic/ Somewhere between I want it and I got it/ Somewhere between I’m sober and I’m lifted/Somewhere between a mistress and commitment”

4. Views (2016)

Drake teased this album for nearly two years before it dropped leading to a massive disappointment in expectations. During this time, Drake dropped the mixtapes,  What a Time to Be Alive and If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late. The mixtapes sounded more like party playlist so people were hoping Drake would get back to his substantial melodic roots on this album but they were wrong. It was widely criticized for sounded like another party braggadocious piece of work with lyrics like “keychain go jang-a-lang/I wanna do major thangs/M.J in every way/I just don’t fade away.”

Despite the criticism, Views is Drake’s most successful album to date. Views was Drake’s first album that sold over 1 million copies in the first week. It also produced Drake’s first solo Billboard Hot 100 single with “One Dance.” It has broken streaming records with Views being streaming over 3 billion times on Spotify with “One Dance” being the most streamed song in Spotify history. Drake wanted this album to be considered his greatest of all time; he wrote and recorded it in his native Toronto with long-time producer 40, however, the songs left a lot to be desired with lyrics like “how’s that for real?/Now you toyin’ with it like Happy Meal.”

5. Thank Me Later (2010)

Drake’s debut album was a huge disappointment for those who have been following him since his mixtape days. The mixtape he dropped before Thank Me Later was So Far Gone – an innovative mixtape that had Houston, Texas and Kanye West inspiration – a mixtape that earned him a Grammy nomination and caught the attention of Lil Wayne to sign him. Everyone thought Drake would continue his innovative brilliance on Thank Me Later but instead were met with an album that sounded like a guy who didn’t know if he wanted to give sharp punchlines to appeal to rap fans or make songs like “Fancy” that would appeal to pop fans.

There are songs like “Karaoke” and “The Resistance,” that use the perfect Drake recipe – rap about songs about former women in his life and how he wish life was as simple as it was in his Degrassi days. When he’s done rapping in the verses he will hit you with some unsure singing like he does in the hook of “The Resistance,” “What am I afraid of?/This suppose to be what dreams are made of/but now I don’t have the time to hang with people that I use to hang with/They tell me, you promised me you would never change.” The vocals sound like they have been through a number of synthesizers and auto-tuning. Drake has since grown in his singing and is more than comfortable singing his hits like “Hold On, We’re Going Home” live sans the auto-tune and all. Despite these feel good songs there are plenty of misses like “Fancy” – a song about how Drake appreciates how women get their “nails done, hair done, everything did.” It’s a sweet sentiment but midway when he starts shouting “Go Cinderella!/Go Cinderella!/Orgasm blush, and concealer/Devil in a tight dress, girl you a killer/And ain’t nobody realer,” things start feeling a bit too unorthodox, even for Drake. Thank Me Later seems to have wanted to please too many people, it looks like Drake quickly grew out of that by his second album.

Selena Gomez Admits to Instagram Addiction

Selena Gomez currently has the most Instagram followers in the world, at a whopping 113 million and counting. This mass exposure has taken its toll, however, as the singer admits in a new interview with Vogue Magazine.

Gomez revealed that she had a social media addiction for a short time, and the upkeep of her public image subsequently dominated her life. “As soon as I became the most followed person on Instagram, I sort of freaked out,” says Gomez, “It had become so consuming to me. It’s what I woke up to and went to sleep to. I was an addict.”

Gomez went on to admit that this addiction parlayed into her professional career, and was a factor in the cancellation of her “Revival” world tour in 2016. “My self-esteem was shot. I was depressed, anxious. I started to have panic attacks right before getting onstage or right after leaving the stage. Basically I felt I wasn’t good enough, wasn’t capable. I felt I wasn’t giving my fans anything, and they could see it — which, I think, was a complete distortion,” she said.

Spotify Confirms Streaming For Drake’s ‘More Life’

It looks like More Life is arriving on (multiple) streaming platforms sooner than later.

After initial reports that the playlist would be an Apple Music Exclusive, similar to Drake’s previous projects If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late (2015) and Views (2016), Spotify tweeted out that they will in fact be streaming it. “New Drake #MoreLife coming soon,” reads the Twitter caption, providing confirmation that More Life will be available to all streaming platforms.

This all-inclusive rollout means big things for Drake and his OVO Sound label, as early projections for the playlist predict over 400,000 equivalent album sales, and 600 million album streams. By comparison, Drake’s previous album, HipHopDX reports that Views pulled in 235 million its first week, on its way to setting multiple streaming records. With this in mind, it looks like More Life will equate to more streams when it premieres on Saturday, March 18th.

UPDATE: The Fader reports that Amazon will also be carrying More Life on the day its released. Check out the tweet below.

Top 5 Best Songs About Thomas Rhett’s Wife

Country music singer Thomas Rhett attends the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards with his wife Lauren Akins at The Forum on March 5, 2017 in Inglewood, California.

What’s a Thomas Rhett song without the lyrics about his wife Lauren Akins? Not only is she the main star in his music videos, but she’s the inspiration behind some of his biggest hits, too. Have you ever seen how much he swoons over her when he talks about her? It’s pretty much the cutest thing ever.

The two of them got married back in 2012, but they were actually high school sweethearts before that. They met each other in the first grade. They actually just announced in February 2017 that they’re expecting a baby girl. What’s crazy about that news is that they told the world about that on the same day they spilled that they’re adopting another child from Africa, too. How adorable is that?

Rhett’s not afraid to talk about his ladylove, either. He’s actually said in interviews before that if it wasn’t for her he would’ve never been successful and that she’s his biggest fan. Perhaps that’s why he seems to always write songs about her? Ah, what a lucky gal.

Below is a list of the best Rhett songs that are about and inspired by Akins. Get ready to swoon.

5. “Vacation” (2015), Thomas Rhett

This fun song of Rhett’s was released on June 13, 2016, and is on his Tangled Up album. While the lyrics to this track aren’t as lovey-dovey as his other ones about his wife, she is the star in the “Vacation” video. The fun they’re having together in the clips just show how in love they are with each other, no cute words neccessary.

Seeing Rhett’s wife as the leading lady in his music videos shouldn’t be surprising, though. During an interview with TheBoot.com, Rhett explained why we’ll never see him with a video vixen.

“I was just very adamant with the record label and with my video producer, just saying, ‘Look man, it’s not a big deal. It’s just not really me to be all over some girl in a music video,’” he said. “Even if they are the nicest people in the world, it’s just not really what I do.”

Hey, you have to respect that, right?

4. “Something To Do With My Hands” (2012), Thomas Rhett

This track was released in February 2012 as the first single from his debut album, It Goes Like This. And if “Something To Do With My Hands” sounds a little sexy to you, that’s exactly what Akins told her husband she thought about the song, too.

She apparently told Rhett that even though “Something to Do with My Hands” was about her, that it was too saucy and overly sex-driven, and that he needed to write sweeter songs. With lyrics like, I don’t work, on a car and I’m as bad at pool as I am at throwin’ darts, and golf, not a fan. But I need something to do with my hands so maybe I could stick ’em in your pockets, run ’em through your hair, and we can get to rockin’ there you are and baby, here I am, and I need something to do with my hands…,” you can kind of see her point.

Cue the other songs on the list…

3. “The Way Things Go” (2014), Thomas Rhett

Now this song may be from the hit movie “Best of Me,” but that doesn’t mean Rhett doesn’t kill the track with his romantic lyrics like the usuals on his albums. There’s no proof out there that this song is about his wife, but once you read the lyrics, it’s sort of obvious that it is.

“And I coulda swore back when I was 15 I’d go to college and get my business degree, I never made it that far God put a big old wrench in my plans and he put this guitar in my hands. So much for crystal balls and wishin’ on stars, as you’re watchin’ them fall to the ground. Yeah you can dream big and you can dream small but it all comes down to the luck of the draw so I found. Cause it’s gonna rain as soon as you wash your car and as sure as you go on and give up your heart a curve gets thrown, that’s the way things go. I woulda tattooed her name on my arm
If you would’ve asked me I’d bet the whole damn farm, and more on us so much for her being my meant to be. ‘Cause she changed her mind like the wind and the joke was on me, she left me in the dust, but if she hadn’t left my heart black and blue, I woulda never found you,” he sings.

Rhett and his wife met in the first grade, and fell in love when they were just teenagers, and after they both tried to date other people. They got married when they were young and shortly after they got together, and of course, they have been happy ever after. See why we assume it’s about her?

2. “Star of the Show” (2016), Thomas Rhett

“Star of the Show,” is the fifth single from his 2015 sophomore album, Tangled Up, and the only single released from the deluxe edition of the project. Rhett wrote the song right after he married Akins in 2012. He recently admitted that he might need to find new song subject matter soon.

“I feel like I write way too many songs about her, and, at some point, I’m going to have to stop putting those songs out,” Rhett told The Boot.com. “But for now, it’s just a really cool thing; it’s great to hear those songs on the radio and be sitting with her in the car and be like, ‘That’s about you.’”

Of course, Rhett’s leading lady is in this song’s music video, too. Cutest couple ever? We think so.

1. “Die a Happy Man” (2015), Thomas Rhett

In 2015, Rhett released “Die A Happy Man” from his Tangled Up album. It topped our list because it’s simply Akins’ favorite song her husband has written about her. The lyrics are about a man talking to his wife, explaining that all he needs in his life is her love and that if she is all he has, he could “die a happy man.”

The track was written after Rhett’s wife informed him that he didn’t write enough ‘sweet’ songs. She apparently told him that “Something to Do with My Hands” was too sexy, and another tune of his, “Crash and Burn,” was far too depressing. So she asked him to create a sweet song instead. How did he respond? Her husband, clearly pleased with himself when he wrote “Die A Happy Man,” sent along the demo at 4 AM on a tour bus. Her reaction? She said that it was “hands down” one of the best songs he’d ever written.

Fans seemed to agree with her on that, too. The song top basically ever country music chart out there shortly after it was released. And yes, that’s his wife in the music video, too. They shot it in Hawaii where they actually honeymooned at after their big day.

Rhett actually has big wedding day dreams for this particular song. He told TasteOfCountry.com that, “There’s a song on the record called ‘Die a Happy Man’ that I hope one day becomes a lot of people’s wedding songs. It’s a super, super, super love song,” he said, adding sweetly, “I wrote it about my wife.”

5 Famous Singers You Didn’t Know Were Irish

Saint Patrick’s Day, also known as the Feast of Saint Patrick, is a time to celebrate all who are Irish. And though it is only a legal holiday in Suffolk County, Massachusetts, the rest of the United States has been quick to get in on the fun. Exuberant amounts of green, lots of eating and drinking, and, of course, an appreciation of Irish and Irish American culture and the legend of Saint Patrick, who is the patron saint of Ireland.

With that being said, it is also a time for those of Irish-American descent to embrace their heritage and celebrate. Many celebrity figures are known for their prominent Celtic roots, among which include Van Morrison, Bono, Sinead O’Connor and Ed Sheeran. Still, there are many whose heritage is less obvious, and perhaps even unknown to the public. Learn who the most surprising of these are below.


1. Christina Aguilera

While Christina Aguilera may be know for her Cuban ancestry, the singer was actually raised by her Irish mother, Shelly Loraine, after she and Aguilera’s father divorced. “A lot of people get all in a fuss about Christina wanting to explore her Latin side and not mentioning her Irish side much, but that’s only logical,” Loraine told Free Library in 2001, “She was raised in an area which was predominantly Irish her whole life. I was a single mother raising her with my mom, Delcie Dunfee, who comes from Co Clare.”

Loraine also went on to reveal that “I then married an Irish American. Irish customs have always been a big part of our lives, so she had no need to go exploring them. For example, we’d put candles in the windows, especially at Christmas, as a symbol of welcome to Mary and Joseph. This is a totally Irish custom. And we’d decorate the house for St. Patrick’s Day with shamrocks and leprechauns.” As for where Aguilera herself stands on her ethnically diverse makeup, she says that she’s “a little mixed up and proud of every part of it.”


2. Kurt Cobain

While he was born and raised in the United States, Kurt Cobain‘s family actually hail from Northern Ireland. According to Irish Central, his ancestors Samuel and Letitia Cobane (the spelling was changed after their emigration) decided to leave their Irish farm of five generations to start a new life as shoemakers in Washington. This lineage was actually unknown to Cobain for most of his life, and it was only after began touring with Nirvana that he began to learn about his family. When the iconic rock group performed in County Cork, Ireland, Cobain explained that the area gave him a distinct feeling of kinship.

“It was the weirdest feeling and I have a friend who was with me who could testify to this,” he said, “I was almost in tears the whole day. Since that tour, which was about two years ago, I’ve had a sense that I was from Ireland.” Listen to the clip above to hear Cobain discuss his Irish heritage further.


3. Macklemore

Macklemore, born Benjamin Hammond Haggerty, was born in Washington in 1983. His parents, Bill Haggerty and Julie Schott, were both Irish, and encouraged their young so to pursue his dreams of becoming a rapper. Obviously, the support proved impactful, as Macklemore has since gone on to become one of the most commercially successful hip-hop artists currently working. With monster hits like “Thrift Shop,” “Can’t Hold Us,” and “Downtown,” he and producer Ryan Lewis convey positive messages that unite people of all creeds and colors.

That being said, Macklemore has never lost sight of his Irish heritage. The most prominent example of this is “Irish Celebration,” the 2010 single that finds him paying homage to his Gaelic homeland. Released as part of The VS Redux EP, Macklemore raps lines like “My heritage, proud to be a Haggerty,” with unabashed pride. “The song is about celebrating life,” he told Rap Ireland, “It celebrates my ancestry and culture.” Check out the video above.


4. Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey‘s music– a meld of throwback R&B and sugary pop– speaks to her diverse upbringing. Her father, Alfred Roy, is African American and Venezuelan, while her mother, opera singer Patricia Carey, is in fact Irish-American. Carey discussed her little-known heritage with The Guardian in 2009, explaining that “My mother’s white– she’s so Irish, she loves Ireland. She’s like ‘Yay, Ireland!’ Waving the flag and singing ‘When Irish Eyes Are Smiling.” This meld of different identities was a burden to the singer growing up, as she went on to say “I understand people want to hold on to their roots. But for me, I was a complete nonentity because of it. Maybe that was part of my drive to succeed. I’ll become accepted.”

Fortunately, for both Carey and her mother, her Irish roots are something she’s grown to be proud of into adulthood. “It’s great,” she said, “I appreciate and respect it.” According to Entertainment Tonight, Carey even rocked a bright green dress for St. Patrick’s Day last year. You can watch Mariah and Patricia perform together during the 2010 ABC Christmas Special above.


5. Paul McCartney

As a former Beatle and one of the greatest songwriters of all time, Paul McCartney is familiar to all. His Irish ancestry, on the other hand, not so much. The singer was born to James and Mary McCartney in 1942, both of whom descended from Irish immigrants, and raised him as a Catholic in Liverpool, England. This ancestry would go unmentioned for a great many years, especially during his time with The Beatles, but once McCartney went solo, he embraced it wholeheartedly.

According to Irish Central, McCartney and his wife Linda wrote “Give Ireland Back to the Irish” in 1972, which was a response to the Bloody Sunday massacre in Northern Ireland. Recorded with McCartney’s band Wings, the song caused a great deal of controversy in Britain, where it was banned for being “too inflammatory.” Despite this, “Give Ireland Back to the Irish” soared to number one on the singles charts in Ireland. “From our point of view,” said McCartney, “It was the first time people questioned what we were doing in Ireland.”

The singer would later marry his second wife, Heather Mills, in Ireland in 2002.

Drake’s Producer 40 Says He’s Almost Done With ‘More Life’

It’s getting down to the wire, and More Life is just about ready for release.

After delays, speculation, and an overlooked release date that came and went, Drake‘s long-awaited playlist is 24 hours away from its official premiere. Those nervous about the rapper making good on his claim are slowing gaining confidence based on the project’s streaming announcements and official confirmation from Drizzy himself. There’s been no confirmed tracks outside of the previously released “Fake Love” and “Sneakin,” but there are rumors of up to 30 songs could land on the tracklist, including collaborations with 21 Savage, Giggs, and The Weeknd.

Now, Drake’s longtime producer, Noah “40” Shebib, has hopped on Twitter to give us an update. “Almost done,” he writes alongside the hashtag “MoreLife.” It’s a promising sign for fans, as the producer and sound engineer rarely takes time from his busy schedule to tweet. Those needn’t worry about the project being completed on time, either, as “40,” whose worked with Drake since 2009, has made working up to the wire something of a tradition.

According to HNPP, the producer was putting the finishing touches on Views (2016) just days before its official release. “40” posted a similar message a few weeks ago on Instagram, but given the teaser nature of this most recent message, we’d say he’s simply wetting the appetites of Drake fans everywhere.

More Life is scheduled to premiere tomorrow (March 18) on OVO Sound Radio at 6 p.m. ET.

UPDATE: “40” has tweeted out that he’s officially done with the album.

Young Thug and Travis Scott Are Confirmed Features on Drake’s ‘More Life’

After mass speculation regarding who will feature on Drake More Life, fans have finally gotten some concrete news.

According to Music News and Rumors (seen above), Young Thug has been confirmed to appear on the project for a still untitled track. This will be first time Drake and Thugger have collaborated on a song, despite the fact that the Atlanta rhymer opened for Drake when he was on tour in the U.K. and openly praised him as “1 of the realist rappers I know.”

Additionally, there has also been news that rapper Travis Scott will also be making an appearance. Similar to Young Thug, there’s no word yet on the song title, but given Scott’s recent acclaim with the album Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight, we can assume it will be a keeper. Drake and Scott previously collaborated on “Company,” which appeared on Drake’s 2015 mixtape If You’re Reading This Its Too Late.

Scott may also be on hand to contribute as a producer, given his talent behind the boards for artists like Kanye West, Big Sean, and Jay-Z.
