Drake "Headlines" (2011)
Where They Sound The Same: The opening notes in the first 10 seconds.
Before veering of into completely different directions, Drake and Young Money both started things off strong with a sequence of notes that set the tone for these singles. Each is a little different, but the keyword here is "little." The tracks may not have much else in common, but the introductions will always have us thinking of these like a set of twins that grew apart as they grew up. To boot, Santigold's "Disparate Youth" actually sounds strikingly similar, too. Listen to the opening notes of that below and try to disagree.
