Drake: Urban Legend
Since Drake’s commercial debut in 2009, much has been made of the “Toronto Sound” established by the Boy and his cabal of Toronto-based producers, including Noah “40” Shebib, Boi-1da, Frank Dukes, and others. That “Toronto Sound” is usually described as the spare, downtempo, atmospheric, R&B-indebted production that evokes the introspective, gloomy mood, and feelings people tend to experience during Canada's harsh winters.
With those feelings in mind and winter quickly approaching, Drake’s catalogue serves as the perfect salve to all our weather woes. In this playlist, we highlight some of Drake’s best songs from Take Care, Nothing Was the Same, What A Time To Be Alive, Views, and More Life that can keep you warm this winter. Here you’ll find: cuffing season anthems, booty call jams, tales of relationships gone awry, plainly paranoid songs about the loneliness of life at the top, stentorian chest-thumping bops, and much more. Put on your scarf, make yourself a cup of tea, sit back, and enjoy the views.
