As a constant Top 40 fixture with millions of albums sold, he has dominated the music world and has become one of the most successful hip-hop artists of all time. Find out why people around the world can’t get enough of Drake.
Drake launched his career as an actor, having starred in the wildly popular teen drama Degrassi: The Next Generation. However, he always had his heart set on being a performer and in 2006 he put out his debut mixtape which put him on the musical map and spawned the first of many collaborations with Lil Wayne. His third mixtape So Far Gone brought notable success with hit singles “Best I Ever Had” and “Successful,” and built anticipation over his first full-length album Thank Me Later.
The debut record shot to No. 1 in both the U.S. and Drake’s native Canada, with each of his subsequent albums – 2011’s Take Care, 2013’s Nothing Was the Same, 2016’s Views and 2018’s Scorpion - repeating that success as chart-toppers in several countries.
Drake is truly an artist for the digital age and is the highest-certified digital singles artist in the U.S. He has several songs among Spotify’s 100 Most Streamed Songs, including 2016 smash single “One Dance,” which became the first song to surpass one billion streams on the service and held the position of most-streamed song for over a year. His other career accolades include multiple Grammys, Billboard Music Awards, Juno Awards and American Music Awards.
Drake’s extensive catalog of hits include No. 1 smashes “Best I Ever Had,” “Headlines,” “The Motto,” “Hotline Bling,” “Summer Sixteen,” “God’s Plan,” “One Dance” and “In My Feelings.” He is also known for his many collaborations with other artists, including DJ Khaled, Future, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Kendrick Lamar and Migos. However, he’s perhaps best associated with frequent collaborator Rihanna, with whom he’s recorded hits “Take Care,” “Too Good,” “What’s My Name?” and “Work.”
Drake set a Billboard Music Awards record in 2017 when he took home 13 awards in one night, the most of any artist. Adele previously held the record with 12 awards in one night.
