There is no secret that Drake is one of the best. The Canadian hitmaker transitioned his career from acting as Wheelchair Jimmy in Degrassi to becoming the most talked about artist. Before he got to 5 studio albums, 113 singles, and 105 awards (including three Grammy Awards), he was someone we always looked forward to hearing on everyone’s song. Drake was and still is the secret ingredient to an artist’s new song. Remember when Drake hopped on Migo’s Versace? And iLoveMackonnen’s Tuesday? He recently hopped on BlocBoy’s Look Alive and that blew up as well. In 2009, Drake, Lil Wayne, and Birdman gave us Money To Blow which charted number two on the Billboard/ Lil Wayne said, “And we gone be alright if we put Drake on every hook,” and he was not lying. Not too long after that Drake has been featured on our favorite songs. This is definitely not a coincidence. Below are our favorite throwback songs featuring Drake.
