From Canadian TV actor to one of rap's most sought-after stars, Drake has made the leap from D:TNG to YMCMB. As he prepares to drop his highly anticipated sophomore disc, Take Care, we're still trying to wrap our heads around how Drizzy actually did it.

He's racked up three critically acclaimed mixtapes, one platinum-selling album, and countless features on other artists' hits—with no sign of slowing down. So what's the secret to Drake's chart-topping success? No, it's not his sensitive relationship talk or his vast sweater collection. As he reveals on his song "Money To Blow," dude really is really on that Disney shit—when it comes to songwriting, call him "captain hook."

Whether it's Timbaland or Alicia Keys or Lil Wayne himself, Drake has proven time after time that he can make melodies that stick in fans' ears like bubble gum. And because he loves lists oh so much, we put this together just in time for his upcoming 25th birthday. So let's kick off October with our very own compilation of the 25 Best Drake Hooks. Thank us later.
