13. Drake f/ Rihanna "Take Care" (2011)
Album: Take Care
Producer: Jamie xx, Noah "40" Shebib
Another notch on Drake's belt of sensitivity, "Take Care" addresses a problem that nearly every couple goes through—the past and the now. It samples Jamie xx's remix of Gil Scott-Heron's version of "I'll Take Care of You" and the heavy piano strikes chords in your heart as you imagine the ups and downs of relationships.
Plus, Drake and Rihanna talking about how they've been hurt in the past? Take that Chris, and watch as he caresses her shoulders in the video, and no, he's not acting. It's that love song you want to slow grind to in the club or play for your girl. Drake's songs and versatility is like Drake and hookah: inseparable.
In all seriousness, Drake addresses issues that hit home for everyone, sensitive thugs included—"I've asked about you and they told me things/But my mind didn't change and I still feel the same" means "I don't give a fuck about your past." —LN
