By now, certain things about Drake’s career are undeniable. He’s one of the most commercially successful artists of all time, and the numbers speak for themselves. He holds records for the most total entries on the Hot 100 chart, the most top 10 hits, and the most consecutive weeks on the Hot 100, among countless others. Name a streaming record, and it probably belongs to Drake.

But there are still some things about Drake that will inspire heated debates. Today, we’re diving into one of them: What are his best and worst projects?

Drake has countless bonafide hits, but everyone likes to argue about whether he has classic albums or not (and which ones they are). Maybe you’re nostalgic for early-2010s Drizzy and Take Care is your favorite. Or maybe he won you over with Nothing Was the Same, and it remains your go-to. Perhaps If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late sits atop your list. You’ll get different answers depending on who you ask. There is no consensus ranking of his discography.

Every time Drake drops a new project, comparisons to his previous work are reignited. So, where do his latest projects, Certified Lover Boy and Dark Lane Demo Tapes, rank in his discography? After sitting with them a little, we added each to our evolving list of Drake projects. Dive in below to see where they landed.
