Drake Is the $100 Million Man

Drake Is the $100 Million Man


It’s Prime Day and I’m thinking about buying a few Scorpion albums with my money. The only problem is Amazon’s got a big glitch. I thought I write about Drake until Amazon gets fixed. Right now, I’m listening to his music as I write.

I first listened to Scorpion on Spotify when it was initially released on June 29. If you don’t know what Spotify is, it is the Netflix of music. As I listened to Drake on Spotify, I was impressed from the very beginning.

Since June 29, I’ve played Drake’s music every day. I can recall listening to it on Independence Day. The experience was like watching a Will Smith movie. It was a pleasure to hear his rhymes and beats.

Drake is no stranger to taking over. Do you remember when Hotline Bling was the music video of the year? “And I know when that hotline bling, that can only mean one thing.”

Drake is taking over Summer 2018. We will look back on this moment and recognize the summer as a historic period in music. You watch as people come up with stories in the future.

Drake is the $100 million man for 100 million reasons. His music gets inside of your head. You are bound to memorize his lyrics. It’s only a matter of time before you know In My Feelings by heart.

“Kiki, do you love me?”

I can’t wait for him to collaborate with The Weeknd, who made $92 million last year according to Forbes.

I believe Drake’s Scorpion album will eclipse the popularity of Thriller. Everyone acknowledges Thriller as Michael Jackson’s magnus opus. Well, Scorpion is Drake’s magnus opus.

The hit album is a popular culture phenomenon. First, we saw God’s Plan turn into a colossal hit. Then, Nice for What became a theme song for independent women. Let’s not forget his music videos are cream of the crop. I’m talking top notch quality.

Now, In My Feelings might turn into the song of the year. People are literally going wild because of In My Feelings. Have you heard of the In My Feelings challenge? It’s amazing how much Drake is impacting the world with his songs.

Scorpion was released 3 weeks ago and has already broken all time streaming records. It is no coincidence Drake features Michael Jackson on his album.

Drake is a modern-day Picasso. His songs are works of arts. Like Beyonce and Jay Z, Drake has made a masterpiece. Unlike Bey and Jay, you could say he did it all by himself because his name alone is on the album cover.

Listening to Drake’s music gives you good vibes. For the most part, his music stays positive. However, he had to address his Pusha T beef. I don’t understand these rap beefs sometimes.

Applaud Drake because he is willing to tell his side of the story. I hope Amazon gets fixed, so I can buy the Drake albums. In the meantime, I’m going to keep listening to his music.
