A look at Drake's large collection of loose tracks.
With Drake's "Hotline Bling" recently becoming his biggest hit to date, the rapper seems to have mastered the art of the standalone single. Drizzy has been using loose tracks as a means to promote his albums for a few years now, and he's only become more generous with the release of singles since the launch of his OVO Radio show.
Some of these tracks are among his best work, but it's easy for songs to fall through the cracks over the years if they are not attached to a larger project, so we've decided to go through Drake's catalog and put together all of his non-album releases from the last few years. Of course, we had to draw up a few guidelines. The songs selected had to be billed with Drake as the lead artist, therefore disqualifying DJ Khaled collaborations or remixes where the original artists remain on the bill. Finally, we're only counting official releases here, no sketchy leaked tracks.
All in all, it's a pretty impressive collection of records, and we're sure that one day Drake will make a point of releasing it as some sort of compilation, but until then, you'll have to settle for flipping through our galleries.
