Happy 27th Birthday Drake! 10 of His Most Sensitive Lyrics


Hold on, Drake‘s not going home tonight … he’ll be out poppin’ bottles and celebrating his 27th birthday!

Although the rapper has lots of popular songs, his lyrics are sometimes dubbed as “emo” by critics.

Drizzy’s songs certainly bring out serious emotions, but from his early days on the beloved TV show Degrassi to the release of his recent album Nothing Was the Same, we have enjoyed his passionate and expressive nature.

In honor of the Grammy-winning singer and songwriter’s birthday, here are 10 of his most sensitive lyrics we love:

1. Marvin’s Room (2011)

“Having a hard time adjusting to fame / …Girl I’m lucky that you picked up / lucky that you stayed on / I need someone to put this weight on/ Well, I’m sorry.”

2. Take Care (2011)

“You won’t ever have to worry / You won’t ever have to hide / You’ve seen all my mistakes / So look me in the eyes.”

3. Hold On, We’re Going Home (2013)

“I got my eyes on you / you’re everything that I see / I want your hot love and emotion endlessly / I can’t get over you / you left your mark on me / I want your hot love and emotion endlessly.”

4. Fear (2009)

“And know that I pop bottles cause I bottle my emotions / At least I put it all in the open.”

5. Find Your Love (2010)

“I realized I waited too long / but please don’t move on / you don’t need no one else.”

6. Own It (2013)

“You’re still the one that I adore / Ain’t much out there to have feelings for.”

7. Sooner Than Later (2009)

“I better find your loving / I better find your heart / I bet if I give all my love then nothing’s gonna tear us apart.”

8. Best I Ever Had (2009)

“You could have my heart or we could share it like the last slice.”

9. Furthest Thing (2013)

“I was young and I was selfish / I made every woman feel like she was mine and no one else’s / And now you hate me.”

10. On My Way (2010)

“If you just give tonight to me / I promise my hands are safe.”
