The 50 Best Drake Songs

4. Drake "Best I Ever Had" (2009)

Album: So Far Gone
Producer: Boi-1da

If it wasn't for "Best I Ever Had" then So Far Gone may have never been created. And if it wasn't for "Best I Ever Had" then there would have been way less Facebook statuses about "Sweat pants, hair tied, chilling with no make up on." Drake landed at No. 1 on the Billboard Rap and R&B/Hip-Hop charts with this track, leaving him with the "Hot Rap Song" of the year, as per Billboard. And it's true—this was a song that was played in the clubs, out of every car, and on repeat for nearly the entire spring and summer (and fall) of 2009. The video, directed by Kanye West, featured a basketball team of women who, in pink uniforms, face another team of women, who are more skilled, but none of that matters to Drake, as we watched him coach the girls. Who run's Drake's world? Girls. LN
