Did You Know These Songs Were Written by Drake?

Drake has a very extensive discography, with a wide range of genres and styles to his credit, but there are some songs that you probably did not realize were written by the Toronto rapper because they are performed by other artists. 6 songs that were actually written by Drizzy include:

 1. Melania Fiona – I’ve Been That Girl

When the 6 God was still just a struggling artist working on DeGrassi High and making the show into a cult hit this wasn’t all he was doing. Drake also performed as part of The Renaissance, a group that created music. The band did not go anywhere but “I’ve Been That Girl” did. Drizzy co-wrote the song with Melania Ford, who performs it on her LP The Melania Ford Life.

2.Kanye West- Facts, 30 Hours, and Father Stretch My Hands

Life of Pablo, the 7th studio album by Kanye West, includes credit to Drake for songwriting but many may have missed this fact. The album lists Drizzy as a co-writer for the tracks Facts and 30 Hours. A tweet from West gave praise to the Toronto rapper, stating , “I wanna thank my brother Drizzy for helping me on 30 Hours & Father Stretch My Hands. Drake would come by and just help, no strings. Future also came by to write. We all got new shit together that’s gonna drop soon.”

3.Rita Ora- R.I.P.

In the beginning songstress Rita Orr needed tracks to gain attention and make her an international sensation in the world of pop music, and Drake came to the rescue by co-writing R.I.P. Some speculated that Drizzy intended the track for Ri-Ri but Orr said that this was not true in a Sunday Times interview in 2012. “R.I.P. wasn’t written for Rihanna. But even if it was played to her, I don’t care. As soon as I heard it, I said it was mine. I was going to fight for that song.”

4.Beyonce- Mine

The 6 God and Queen Bey wrote Mine together, with some help from Majid Jordan and Noah “40” Shebib of the OVO crew. This track was featured on the self titled album that Beyonce released in 2013 and it became a big hit.

5. Alicia Keys- Un-thinkable (I’m Ready)

Many do not realize that the hit 2010 album The Element of Freedom released by Alicia Keys contains Drake’s influence in the track Un-thinkable (I.m Ready). When discussing this hit that he co-wrote Drizzy explained to BET “It is [about Minaj], I’m not gonna lie …The concept came from a conversation that we had, or conversations we have. I wrote it based off two things: Number one, based off that, and then two, based off Alicia and Swizz and their situation, and it just seemed fitting. It was like the perfect concept.”

 

6.Jamie Foxx- Fall For Your Type

Jamie Foxx was so impressed when he heard the track Drake wrote called Fall For Your Type that the actor and singer decided to re-record the song and make it into a single on his fourth album Best Night of My Life. Many do not realize that Foxx is a singer as well as an actor, and he does Drizzy’s track justice.
