The 50 Best Drake Songs

48. Drake f/ The-Dream "Shut It Down" (2010)

Album: Thank Me Later
Producer: Noah "40" Shebib, Omen

The-Dream assists on this serenade that has Drake sounding sweeter than a Whitman's Sampler. He reaches a career peak for campiness with the line: "Put those fucking heels on and work it girl/Let that mirror show you what you're doing." He returns to a modified version of those lyrics later, but they don't seem as honest, or nearly as feminist, as they do at the top of the song. The-Dream, who surprisingly enough didn't help out on the song's production, has his enjoyable "looking good girl" refrain near the song's end. It's best listened to on a loop for 10 minutes, natch. —Myles Tanzer
