Today*s Star – Drake

Today*s Star – Drake

Would you believe he got his start on Canadian TV?  Yeah, everyone fell in love with him on Degrassi!

But, he wanted to explore music after he felt he outgrew the show in 2007.  From there, he got into rap, hip hop, R&B, and rhytmic before releasing his debut album in the same year: Room for Improvement.  Thank Me Later, his 2010 debut album, though, debuted in the #1 spot.  His follow up album, Take Care, earned him a Grammy for Best Rap Album in 2011.

But, his big success came in 2016 when he released Views, which contained the songs Hotline Bling and One Dance.  Hotline Bling earned him his 2nd and 3rd GRAMMYs respectively.

Drake has sold more than 12 million albums (Including more than 9 million albums sold in the U.S) and 74 million singles globally.

But he’s way more than a recording artist and actor!  He pioneered his own OVO Sound record label. Under “OVO,”, Drake has his own clothing line and his own program on Beats 1 Radio. He has also developed a whiskey, is a restaurateur, and is the global ambassador for the Toronto Raptors.  Just to name a few.
