The 50 Best Drake Songs

24. Drake f/ Omarion "Bria's Interlude" (2009)

Album: So Far Gone
Producer: Noah "40" Shebib


Sure, we'll call this a song, but sketch is more like it. There's two verses, vocals lost underwater, and a pleading and lonely sample of Ginuwine that'll have you strung out from the first listen. (Technically, the vocals come from a Missy Elliott song, "Friendly Skies," but you're hearing Elgin Baylor Lumpkin's voice). This is Drake's tribute to a woman from L.A., presumably the model Bria Myles, who he was taken with for a time.

"Bria's Interlude" is important for two reasons: One, it's a prime example of Drake's willingness to speak about the real women in his life; and two, it's utterly indicative of 40's sound, meaning the sound that continues to distinguish Drake from his peers. Without 40, we don't have Drake as we know him. â€”RS
