His discography makes a lot of artists pale… but when you take a step back, how do you classify the top 5 of Drake’s albums?
With albums and mixtapes that have been a hit since 2006, Drake has a hard-to-classify discography. MCETV tried to get you select the five albums she finds the most successful, the truest of the Canadian rapper. In all objectivity, of course!
Top 5 Drake Albums
So far gone: the big surprise
No, the Canadian did not expect to go this far… In vogue since 2006, he thus changed category by being recognized as a true MC. The rapper does a real psychoanalysis of himself with huge hits like Houstatlantavegas.
A base in his long list of albums. Because the five songs of So far gone set the tone for real change. The duet with Lil Wayne remains legendary. And Best I Ever Had And Successful managed to mark the career of the rapper.
Scorpio: the double Drake
The rapper does nothing like everyone else. He therefore released an album without having informed anyone, or almost… and a double, what’s more! In my feelings a hit and made top 1 for 10 weeks. God’s Plan dominates the top 100 for 11 weeks.
And it is the whole world that welcomes the release of Scorpio which is touring everywhere in 2018. Between a new duet with Nicki Minaj, a sample of Mariah Carey and 23 other titles as diverse as they are variedDrake strikes a blow.

In addition to the devastating title and the cover full of humor, the pure rap album is full of rants and small piques. A masterclass in composition as in writing !
Nothing was the same: Heartbreaking Drake
And just before the album above, Nothing was the same takes Drake into another dimension. With a very personal, very moving album, the artist indeed shows the full extent of his talent. And once again surprises its first-time fans.
Romance, slow but also strong positions: Nothing was the same brand a real turning point in Drake’s albums. In short, pure, intense, it gave a real boost to the rapper’s already well-launched career.
Take care: a devastating duo with Rihanna
The impulse, Drake had already taken it from 2006 and his first mixtape. But he revealed himself a little more in the public eye in 2011, with an incredible breakthrough: Take care. Headlines, The Mottoduets with Bidman, Kendrick Lamar, Nicki Minaj and even her grandmother : Drake dares everything.
He succeeds in everything. His duet with Rihanna on the eponymous song, Take care, dates back years later… Perhaps also because he had a little weakness for the singer from Barbados. But he only admits it years later!
