I'm still trying to figure out the most-random-track-of-all-time, "Madonna"?

If You’re reading this it’s too late is Drake’s fourth album he has released. Upon release, he said it’s more of a mixtape to his fans rather than an album. This is arguably Drake’s most “rapping” album as he took a more aggressive look towards it. The first track Legend is a great opening track with a calm, but confident tone. The aggressiveness begins after that with 10 Bands, Energy, Know Yourself and No Tellin’. There are also a few more chill songs with Drake talking about his past such as You & The 6, Jungle, Madonna and Company. It features artists Partynextdoor, Lil Wayne and Travis Scott. Personally, this is a very enjoyable project to listen to. If you like aggressive rap this is probably Drake’s best work for that. Tracks I like the most are Star67, No Tellin’, You & the 6 and Jungle. The only Drake’s I didn’t like are Preach and Wednesday Night Interlude. Overall this is some of Drake’s best work rapping and he came to prove he is on the top of hip hop. In my opinion it isn’t his best album he’s released but it is up there and is solid.

Best Drake project right here, this album is pretty much just hits front to back. Drake assumes more of a tough guy persona on this album, but still occasionally reverts to his classic emotional sad raps style over the 17 tracks on the tape. Highlights include melodic opener “Legend”, the infectious “10 Bands”, and most of all, “You & The 6”; in which Drake raps confessions to his mom over a soulful beat, in a way that really encapsulates what makes him special as an artist. Overall , this stands out pretty clearly to me as the defining statement of Drake’s career; would recommend to anyone who likes Drake's hits and wants to hear him make a full project. 4/5.

‘If You're Reading This It's Too Late’ is the fourth mixtape (mixtapes are different from albums) by Canadian rapper Drake. Although Drake refers to this project as a mixtape, it was promoted and sold as an album. The songs within this ‘mixtape’ features many different styles such as up-tempo and downtempo. For example, ‘Legend’ is more of a downtempo song and ’10 Bands’ is more of an up-tempo song. Some of my favourite songs in this mixtape are popular songs like ‘Legend’, ‘Energy’ and ‘You & the 6’. I enjoy these songs due to their tempo and unique tones (especially ‘Legend’ and ‘You and the 6’). I would recommend this album to anyone who enjoys rap songs in general because there are many unique songs that have different tones and tempo in this album. PS... The album also broke Spotify's first-week streaming record with over 17.3 million streams in the first three days.

Drake released this album with a very long name which is 'If you're reading this it's too late". This album was released in early 2015 and consisted of 19 songs, two being bonus CD tracks, and 17 original songs. This album has many records, top spots on charts and many award nominations. The record was broken by this album for the most streams on Spotify in the first week of release date with 17.3 million streams. The US Billboard 200's number one spot was also claimed by this album along with many more number one weekly spots from UK Albums, Canadian Album, UK R&B Albums, etc. In my opinion, this album was one of the best albums in 2015 because it lived up to the hype it got and went viral in 2015. Most of the songs in this album were songs that I could listen to for hours back then and today, some of them still sound pretty good for example "Know Yourself". I would still recommend listening to this album even though it is almost 5 years old but the album still sounds great. 3.5 out of 5. @Self-Disciplined of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

I have mixed feelings about Drake. He's emerged as maybe the most significant rapper of this decade (Kanye would beg to differ.) and has a broad appeal that recalls Jay-Z is his heyday. As much I like individual songs, I find listening to a whole album of his somewhat exhausting. He can be a little whiny about fame and a little emo (something he got from Kanye's "808s and Heartbreak.") for someone who is so successful. His fourth album is way too long: 19 songs, nearly 80 minutes. Guests include Lil Wayne, Partynextdoor, and Travis Scott. "Hotline Bling" is not on this, btw.
