The Top 25 Best Drake Songs of All Time

I’ve heard all these songs before, but it’s only after life happens that songs start to talk to you, and have relevance. They are the songs that you can’t help but close your eyes to—the songs that are so beautiful, so alive, so longing, so emotional, that you feel the true transcendent power of art: what George Steiner calls “the most ‘ingressive’, trans-formative summons available to human experiencing.”

This was the hardest list for me to compile. Even though there is more to come in the future, these are the best of the best for now. Some songs were hard to leave out, but in the end these were your choices.

25.) Drake – “Fireworks, feat. Alicia Keys”

Fireworks reminds me of the feeling you get when you step out on your own, or try something new for the first time. It arouses emotions in your heart similar to when you fall in love, or brings out the kind of smile that lights up your face, when you realize that the dream of which you once spoke has become the reality that you are living. Alicia Keys’s voice adds the perfect touch.

24.) Drake – “Closer to My Dreams”

This is surely a joint that could hold its own in a club or in constant playback mode on your own CD player. Drake offers up a refreshing effort with lush harmonies, creative instrumentation and ingenious lyricism.

23.) Drake – “Free Spirit”

Doesn’t get any better than this! Drake’s got an awesome style and great sound on this track. I highly recommend this to any fans of neo-soul, R&B, and certain hip hop listeners as well. The track is a smooth, catchy, and overall excellent listen.

22.) Drake – “Houstonatlantavegas”

One of Drake’s classics. Houstonatlantavegas is a soothing incredible song. Drake has one of the best producers by his side, Noah “40” Shebib.

21.) Drake – “Fear”

As a listener you are required to become reflective. Even if you do not like the music you WILL walk away with an understanding of self. And if not with an understanding, than surely with questions. “Fear” is inspiring, revealing, honest, and real.

  • Tonystinson23

    There is one song he forgot. Take Care with Rihanna. That will surely be a Billboard #1

  • Drizzle52

    This list is bogus … 

  • Drakesgirl

    i honestly couldnt make a top 25 list of drake songs they all just pull u in its just the lyrics the beats they just do something to u…its like falling in love u get that feeling in your heart and only drake’s music can do that all his true fans know what im talking about 

  • RichieOVOXO

    Ok lets be serious here…..the calm should be number 1….. no way HYFR is number fucking 2 ? dumbbbbb

  • Rj283c

    he didnt name anything from the young sweet jones mixtape. a lot of drakes best songs are on that mixtape. Do it all, paris morton music, you know you know, etc

  • DariusB

    HYFR doesnt Include Jeezy 

  • Pontell515

    The best song ever made by drake paris morton music or 9am in dallas. If u think anything els your crazzzzzy.

  • Theunchained7611

    damn some of yall dont know shit

  • 3+ya’ll got this whole list messed up…… yall really need to do some recounting if you think that song was worth the number one spot

  • Nmancero

    replacement girl!! i agree wtih eric114. there is so much mroe to drake. and rlly its impossible to choose top 1 song. cause every song is special and more amazing to certain ppl. every song relates at least to one person. hes just amazing, and everything of “comeback season” is amazing. every mixtape, album, and solo song of his deserves number 1. 

  • Yezzir

    Might never do a record better than ‘Find Your Love’….not just Drake, buy anyone. Should be #1, then ‘Light Up’ with Hova, then ‘Take Care’ and the Stevie Wonder joint.

  • Yezzir

    And ‘Trust Issues’ is ridic…can’t believe it wasn’t on this new album.

  • tonibones23

    This list is ALL out of Order!!! I Get Lonely has to be in the Top 5 and it didnt even make the List!!! I’m gonna stop right there because i can go on and on

  • ovoxo

    I like this countdown. Just Becuase take care is a new album doesent mean its not good aswell as The songs in it .” New doesent mean better ” well old doesent mean better either ! Plus a lot of the songs on this countdown are way before thank me later was made . But then again everyone has their own opinion

  • jerry80

    Nice list but, I think “Make Me Proud” should be in this list somewhere.

  • Grace

    this is the greatest rapper of all time. he really shows the real him, not the stereo typical rapper of its hard in hood and stuff but what an artist really is which the most powerful thing he could do as an artist. A true artist.

  • whambamthankyamaam

    The Calm should be number 1.. probably the realest song any rapper has made in the last few years.

  • Walkerterrisha

    lol

  • Maalik Pratt

    This seems like a article from Drake 2009- present. There was no consideration from when he first started out in 2006. Also, a lot of these songs are features, the person who wrote this should have kept it purely Drake. 

  • YABOYCANO

    “LORD KNOWS” IS A FU*#ING MASTERPIECE AND IS NOT EVEN ON THIS LIST, DAMM WHAT A SHAME. ALSO “RANSOM” DESERVES TO BE HERE. THE TITLE OF THE ARTICLE IS DRAKES 25 BEST SONG OF ALLLL TIME! WHICH MEANS IT DOESN’T MATTER IF IT WAS AFTER HE SIGNED WITH YOUNG MONEY OR BEFORE.

  • where’s say what’s real? in my opinion that should be number one. he was soo real on that song. 

  • Will

    I Think “Lust For Life” Or “Cameras/Good Ones Go” Should Also Be On Here 

  • Etrujillo90

    Last time i heard he never signed with young money entertainment

  • FT

    Honestly what about Do It All and Good Life those are goods tracks my favorite was Juice

  • Hello

    all drakes songs are haarrrrd

  • Mlrogers19

    “shut it down”, “take care”, and “the resistance” definitely should have been on here

  • pashundrake

    so “Say What’s Real” should def be on here..smh

  • Gabriel Deann

    Dtake is the sexiest nigga alive from DeAnn

  • Luke23

    what the fuck?no lust for life?say whats real?the ride?The resistance?
    This list is just wack and a true drake fan cannot stand behind this

  • AyyeSwaso

    I just don’t understand how out of all the amazing deep songs drake has HYFR made number 2. O.o not saying it’s a bad song. i love it but Number 2? Really?

  • Alexjohnhuizar

    Trust Issues needs to be on this list, along with Come Winter, The Resistance, Paris Morton Music, and Cameras/Good Ones Go!!! Cameras/Good Ones Go needs to be in the top 5- the song is too good

  • Champw15

    uhhh trust issues?

  • Eduncan80

  • Drn_malone

  • David Ward
