This week’s MTV PUSH Artist Of The Week is one of pop music’s biggest and brightest new stars: Drake. The singing, rapping, (and acting) Young Money member has been winning over listeners with his finely tuned, tough-but-not-rough style of hip-hop and R&B — an intoxicating hybrid that showcases his smooth, alluring voice, witty rhymes and head-to-toe appeal.
With his debut album, Thank Me Later, which builds off the momentum of his mixtape classic So Far Gone, Drake is quickly establishing himself as one of hip-hop’s biggest names, alongside the likes of his label boss Lil Wayne, Kanye West and Jay-Z. And with tracks like the perilously romantic “Find Your Love,” and the frenzied yet reflective “Over,” he looks to be well on his way.
Watch Drake discuss his journey as an artist and a man, why he could never top Lil Wayne, and the dichotomies in his turning-point track, “Over.” And watch “Over” and “Find Your Love” videos too.
