Chilly Gonzales Breaks Down Why Drake’s Music Is So Infectious

Drake is a very popular artist with millions of fans, with hits like Hotline Bling and One Dance that are played over and over without losing any of their appeal. What makes Drizzy’s music so irresistible? This is a topic that was recently covered by Chilly Gonzales on the Beats 1 radio show Music’s Cool. Gonzales has collaborated with the Toronto rapper many times in the past so if anyone would know the answers Chilly would. The show host played many roles in Drake’s Take Care album, playing the piano in the hit track Marvin’s Room and some of the other tracks on the album as well. While analyzing Drake’s music Chilly pointed out that ambiguous major chords play a role in the popularity that the 6 god’s music has. If this is the case then Drake is not alone, many bands and artists in the past including Kate Bush and Fleetwood Mac and used the same strategy. The Gonzales analysis of the rapper from Toronto can be listened to online. It was also recently come out that when Drizzy boasted in his song “buying his neighbors house if they complained about the noise” he was not joking, the artist did just that in 2015.
