Drake R&B Songs: 9 Best Tracks

"Marvin's Room" (Take Care, 2011)

Drake wasn't the first to rap and sing simultaneously. Lauryn Hill won five Grammys for her exceptional talent in both. Post-Drake, rappers no longer need to find an R&B vocalist to deliver a passionate chorus to complement love and loss lines.

"Jaded" (Scorpion, 2018)

On Jaded, the 6 Side lieutenant revisits his mistakes with a younger lady. The internet claims the female is R&B artist and former collaborator Jorja Smith, but Drizzy won't confirm.

"Passionfruit" (More Life, 2016)

Drake called 2017's More Life a "playlist" to let him produce aimlessly without the burden of a formal LP. Drake continued to experiment with dancehall and found his crown gem with Passionfruit.

"Fire & Desire" (VIEWS, 2016)

Round of applause for 40. His subaquatic boom bap inspired many of Drake's greatest singles and tracks on this list. He cleverly transforms Brandy's first album's three I Dedicate songs in different ways.

"Shot For Me" (Take Care, 2011)

I m the man. Yeah, I said it. Bitch, I m the man. Don t you forget it. The way you walk? That s me. The way you talk? That s me. The way you got your hair up? Did you forget? That s me. And the voice in your speaker right now?

"That's How You Feel" (Scorpion, 2018)

Drake was in control. This song is one of Drake's greatest due to Cadastre's production, the hook sampling Nicki and DJ Boof at Powerhouse, and Drake's dissatisfaction in his partner and her antics.

"Houstalantavegas" (So Far Gone, 2009)

So Far Gone wasn't Drake's first mixtape, but it lay the groundwork for his rap and pop music dominance. This foundation was built on the narrative of a Toronto boy who often visited relatives and friends in the South.

"The Real Her" (feat. Lil Wayne & Andre 3000) (Take Care, 2011)

Drake became interested in strip clubs after writing Houstatlanavegas for So Far Gone in 2009. As seen on The Real Her, he falls for a gorgeous dancer after two years. Drizzy wants to kneel and propose after seeing her pole acrobatics.

"Jungle" (If You're Reading This It's Too Late, 2015)

The King of IG quotables began Jungle in 2015 with a deep truth: These days I m letting God handle all things above me. Jungle is a sad representation of Drake's struggle between stardom and his unexplored love journey in his 17-track opus.
