Album: Teflon Don
Producer: J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League


Even if J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League produced it and Chrisette Michele was responsible for much of the record's melody, it's difficult to deny that Drake likely inspired the sound of one of Ross' smoothest songs. "Aston Martin Music" is a fine example of dreamily seductive feel that resonates throughout so much of Drake's music. The song's languorous atmosphere and pristine sheen was the perfect musical approximation of success. And if you don't listen to the version with Drake's extended blackout of a verse, it doesn't count. David Drake
