Drake went from being a TV actor to become a Grammy-winning rapper. He coined the phrase “YOLO,” soared to the top of the charts and has continued to stay on top.

After his first major single, “Best I Ever Had,” Drake became a rap icon. His albums “Thank Me Later” and “Take Care” furthered his stardom and created chart-topping hits. “Nothing Was the Same” was his third studio album to top the charts, and it earned him a Grammy nomination. Originally created to be released as a mixtape, “If You're Reading This It's Too Late” was released in early 2015 and debuted at number one, while all 17 of its songs entered the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Drake created mega-hits like “0 to 100” and “Hotline Bling.”

After dropping three singles in the beginning months of 2016, Drake's highly anticipated fourth album, “Views from the 6,” was released in April. Its single, “One Dance,” is on fire at #1 on the Hot 100 and he now holds the record for the most songs on the Hot 100 list with 20. “Views” sold one million in one week. Drake stopped by the Ellen show in May 2016 for an exclusive interview and performance.
