Toronto music artist Aubrey Graham, Drake, brings many songs to our world. He is very versatile with his music but we want to know is he rapper or a singer? So what is October’s Very Own true talent? Well breaking it down most people would say he is a rapper, but his songs would say otherwise.

 

Let’s look at Drizzy’s career. With his rap songs, they have better flows and lyrics but with his songs when he sings, they do better streaming and popularity wise. What about his albums? Well Drake has 13 total albums/mixtapes, with 7 of them being official. Let’s focus on the 8 main ones. They usually consist of an equal amount of both rap and pop. So they are going to be categorized by success on the songs. With the albums that are successful in rap are “More Life”, “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late”, “Nothing Was The Same”, “ What a Time To be Alive”, and “Thank Me Later”. His albums for pop are “Views”, “So Far Gone”, and “Take Care”. So for albums, Drake’s rap ones are more successful.

 

              On other parts of Drake’s Career he has collaborated with more rappers than singers so with that it’s makes his name more popular in the rap and hip-hop culture. But the thing is songs like “Hotline Bling”, “Take Care”, and “One Dance”, which are songs of Drizzy singing have statistically done better than his rap songs like “Headlines”, “The Motto”, and “Started From the Bottom.”

 

                  Jayleen Hernandez said, “I think he is a singer because compared to other rappers he has a different style. He isn’t rapping like other rappers”.

 

In contrast, McKayla Mendoza said, “He sings and raps but based on the music he puts out, he should be considered a rapper.”

        He did make a lot of successful pop songs but his rap songs prove that he is a rapper. Also, his collaborated songs with artists like YG, Future, Migos, and Lil Wayne which are all rappers just make Drake not fit in with pop artists. This may cause controversy but with this evidence you can’t really argue that he is not a rapper.
