Let's just get the Drake out of the way this month.
We chose a doozy, though. Canada's rap king came through big on this worldwide hit, which also won two Grammy Awards. And Drake brings the emotion, too - he has a presence that few others can reach, and yet can still pull off the angry sadness that goes with the lyrics of this song.
Cowritten by Drake, Timothy Thomas, and producer Nineteen85, I wasn't joking when I said it was a worldwide hit - and a top 30 year-end hit in BOTH 2015 AND 2016. It was a big hit with legs. Not bad for the guy from DeGrassi.
