No one, okay maybe other than Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga, have had a hotter year than Drake. At the age of 23 he has become a big player in the rap/hip hop genre. He is signed to Lil Wayne’s record label, has won 2 Juno Awards, performed on the Grammy Awards show, been nominated for Grammy Awards, and collaborated with Jay Z, Eminem, Kanye West, Jeezy, and Lil Wayne. As I said, he’s had quite a year.
Aubrey Drake Graham, born in Toronto, started off his career as an actor on the popular teen show, “Degrassi: The Next Generation. He then turned to music and signed with a label in 2009. From his debut EP the single “Best I Ever Had” went to the top of the charts. In one of the biggest bidding wars for a young artist, he then signed with Lil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment label.
Drake released his debut album in 2010 entitled “Thank Me Later”. Singles “Miss Me Later”, “Find Your Love” and “Over” have all been Top 15 hits.
