Aubrey Drake Graham was van origine acteur en werd bekend met zijn rol in de serie Degrassi: The Next Generation. Zijn zangambities stak hij niet onder stoelen of banken en er verschijnen ook enkele mixtapes en losse nummers op Myspace.

In 2009 gaat hij aan de slag bij de platenmaatschappij van Lil’ Wayne. Een jaar later verschijnt het debuutalbum van Drake, Thank Me Later. In november van dat jaar is What’s My Name, samen met Rihanna, zijn eerste Top 40 hit.

Het tweede album, Take Care, levert in Nederland geen hits op, waar dat in 2013 wel gebeurt met het album Nothing Was The Same. Hold On, We’re Going Home is datzelfde jaar de tweede hit voor Drake in de Top 40. In 2015 weet Drake in de Verenigde Staten een top 3-hit te scoren met Hotline Bling. Die track, die in de Top 40 op nummer 9 weet te komen, is afkomstig van zijn vierde studioalbum, Views From The 6.

In 2016 is Drake opnieuw te horen in een samenwerking met Rihanna op het nummer Work. Dat wordt halverwege februari zijn vierde Top 40-hit. In april komt hij ook met een eigen track, One Dance (met Wizkid en Kyla) waarmee hij zijn eerste nummer 1-hit scoort. Als Justin Timberlake met Can't Stop The Feeling de leiding overneemt staat One Dance 9 weken aaneengesloten op nummer 2. Daarmee evenaart Drake de prestatie van Jeroen Van Der Boom, die met Jij Bent Zo hetzelfde record in handen heeft. Op 29 april verschijnt het album Views met daarop Controlla en Too Good (een nieuwe samenwerking met Rihanna).
In het najaar van 2016 laat Drake weten dat er geen album of mixtape onderweg is maar dat hij met More Life een playlist zal lanceren. Daarin zit ook de track Fake Love.

In januari 2017 geeft Drake vier concerten in de Ziggo Dome waarmee hij zijn Boy Meets World-tournee aftrapt. Op 18 maart verschijnt More Life, een playlist die alleen via streamingdiensten te beluisteren is. In de eerste 24 uur zet de Canadese rapper een record neer met ruim 61 miljoen streams op Spotify. Passionfruit komt in april op nummer 13 in de Top 40. In juni is Drake te horen op To The Max van DJ Khaled.


Op 20 januari 2018 brengt Drake de ep Scary Hours uit met daarop onder meer de track God's Plan. Die staat 11 weken op de eerste plaats van de Amerikaanse hitlijst en met zijn opvolger, Nice For What, weet hij zichzelf te vervangen aan kop van de Billboard-lijst. Drake is de eerste artiest ooit die dat weet te doen met tracks die nieuw binnen weten te komen op nummer 1.


Songtekst

I wanna know who mothafuckin' representin' in here tonight
Hold on, hold on
I keep lettin' you back in (You back in)
How can I explain myself

Care for me, care for me
You said you'd care for me
There for me, there for me
Said you'd be there for me (Lil Weezyana shit)
Cry for me, cry for me
You said you'd die for me (Murda on the beat)
Give to me, give to me
Why won't you live for me

Care for me, care for me (A song for y'all to cut up to, you know?)
I know you care for me
There for me, there for me
Said you'd be there for me (Yeah)
Cry for me, cry for me
You said you'd die for me
Give to me, give to me
Why won't you live for me

Everybody get your mothafuckin' roll on
I know shorty and she doesn't want no slow song
Had a man last year, life goes on
Haven't let that thing loose, girl, in so long
You've been inside, know you like to lay low
I've been peepin' what you bringin' to the table
Workin' hard, girl, everything paid for
First-last, phone bill, car note, cable
With your phone out, gotta hit them angles
With your phone out, snappin' like you Fabo
And you showin' off, but it's alright
And you showin' off, but it's alright (Alright)
It's a short life, yeah

Care for me, care for me
You said you'd care for me
There for me, there for me
Said you'd be there for me
Cry for me, cry for me
You said you'd die for me
Give to me, give to me
Why won't you live for me

That's a real one in your reflection
Without a follow, without a mention
You really pipin' up on these niggas
You gotta be nice for what to these niggas

I understand, you got a hunnid bands
You got a baby Benz, you got some bad friends
High school pics, you was even bad then
You ain't stressin' off no lover in the past tense
You already had them
Work at 8 AM, finish 'round five
Hoes talk down, you don't see 'em outside
Yeah, they don't really be the same offline
You know dark days, you know hard times
Doin' overtime for the last month
Saturday, call the girls, get 'em gassed up
Gotta hit the club, gotta make that ass jump
Gotta hit the club like you hit them mothafuckin' angles
With your phone out, snappin' like you Fabo
And you showin' off, but it's alright
And you showin' off, but it's alright
It's a short life

Uh-huh (Oh yeah)
These hoes (They mad)
Your boy (I had)

Care for me, care for me
You said you'd care for me
There for me, there for me
Said you'd be there for me
Cry for me, cry for me
You said you'd die for me
Give to me, give to me
Why won't you live for me

Gotta make that, gotta, gotta make that
Gotta make that jump
Gotta make that, gotta, gotta make that
Gotta, gotta, gotta
G-g-gotta, g-g-gotta, gotta
Gotta, g-g-gotta, gotta

Over, over, lift it up (Make that jump, jump)
