Hold On, We’re Going Home

While Drake may be known for his rapping, this song shows he is just as good of a singer as he is a rapper. This is a light and smooth song that pleased a lot of fans; it was from the album Nothing Was The Same. This song was so powerful and influential that a lot of other artists and bands covered it.



Controlla is widely said to be one of the best songs of the VIEWS album. The beat and lyrics are what draws fans in as well as what keeps them coming back to the song over and over again. It fits the bill perfectly and is the reason why it deserves a spot on this list.



This was one of his best and most popular songs from his album More Life. It spoke to fans on another level as it was talking about an affair with someone who lives long distance. The lyrics in this song, if you listen closely, are what makes the song so easy to fall in love with.


One Dance

This song is truly one of the best from Drake as it is so catchy, and once the tune gets stuck in your head there is pretty much no way of getting it out again. It’s got enough of a beat to be able to dance to, so you would hear this song in the club a lot of the time. One Dance was certainly an honest song from the VIEWS album.


Nice For What

This tune can be found on one of the great albums from Drake, Scorpion. It debuted at #1 on the Hot 100 chart and just one listens to the song, it is easy to tell why. The up-tempo beat and lyrics make this song great to dance to and it is certainly worth checking out the music video for this tune as well.


Hotline Bling

If there is going to be a list of Drake’s greatest songs, then his tune Hotline Bling needs to be included. When thinking of Drake songs, this is probably one of the first that comes to mind. If you have ever been out to a club before, the chances are you have heard the song Hotline Bling playing on the loud speakers.


God’s Plan

This tune was released in early 2018 and is certainly one of Drake’s biggest hits. In itself is in an awesome song, but more than that, Drake gives away $1 million as is explained in the music video. If you haven’t seen the music video yet, it’s certainly worth a watch.
