Drake has “Started from the Bottom” as early as 15 years old, starring in a television series, and eventually became the “Best I Ever Had” for thousands of his fans. For him “Nothing Was the Same” again, especially after he snagged a Grammy a couple of years ago. And with his record for the most number-one hits on Billboard’s R&B/hip-hop chart, it is no surprise that the Canadian rapper proclaimed, “What a Time to be Alive.” Romance has been quite a whirlwind for Drake, however, as he resorts to “Hotline Bling” for a second chance.

Catchy, emotional lyrics with equally catchy melodies from the multi-talented Drake make for plenty of earworm material as they evoke cherished memories or take the mind on romantic journeys. His musical cred is further solidified by his collaborations with the likes of Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Timbaland and Kanye West. On the digital front, his video for “Hotline Bling” has taken the Internet by storm and sparked hundreds—if not thousands—of memes based on his eccentric yet relatable moves.
