Drake “The Soul Singer” … Revenge of The Light Skinned Keith Sweat

Toronto’s “soul“ leader has manifested himself in the form of a half black and Jewish light skinned cat that raps and sings. Not only does he rap and sing, but he does it very well… merging gritty, slick bars with beautiful melodies. From the home of Glenn Lewis, Deborah Cox, Tamia and so many other Canadian artists, Drake have found a sound that comforts the soul. We often limit soul music to a specific sound and look, but Drake has soul and it comes out in his songs that flirt between the worlds of R&B, Soul and Hip Hop. It might be interpreted in an entirely different way, but yet it still is filled with immense emotion and feeling. Here are a couple of songs that have soul and represent how expression goes beyond music genre lines.

I figured there would be some haters, so we had to give you some joints from Drake. Drake has lyrics, which show vulnerability. He also has the ability to smoothly mix melodies and lyrics in a way that just feels good. You have to admit, this brother has some soul.

Do you think Drake has soul?

Do you think that he can be considered an R&B artist at times?

Girls Love Beyonce Ft. James Fauntleroy
Drake is not really singing on this joint, but this song is just plain dope. Drake called James Fauntleroy to help him out on the hook that they took from Destiny’s Child. We may not know why Drake does the music he does, but you have to appreciate it. He has the ability to give the flip side of being in a shady relationship from a male perspective. Great song!

Let’s Call It OffÂ
This is another joint off of ‘So Far Gone’ that shows Drake’s unique perspective. It has a Beetles type of feel to it that is infectious. If you are not familiar, this is a great song for a get together or just hanging around the house.Â

A Night OffÂ
This is a joint that might as well be on an R&B slow jam album. If you are not familiar with this song, “A Night Off,” on So Far Gone, get it on your computer and iPod. This is a soulful, sensual and sexy joint for the lovers. Even Lloyd helps out on this joint. (I am not sure if Drake needs help.)

What If I Kissed You
Ladies and gentlemen if you wanted to kiss someone this would be the song that could help you break the ice. Is Drake a match maker too?

Little Bit Ft. Lykke liÂ
The So Far Gone album gives the people so many dope songs that showed the range and the creative ability of Drake. This song has a distinctive sound that makes you rethink what Hip Hop is and what it is “suppose” to sound like. This is a groovy joint!

KaraokeÂ
The production on this joint is so mean! This joint is off the album ‘Thank Me Later’, and was produced by Francis & The Lights. This is an emotional roller coaster of a song. This is the perfect I just broke up with my boyfriend/girlfriend song.

I Get Lonely TooÂ
No one can say they don’t get lonely. Drake doesn’t have a problem admitting when he is lonely. This song is all about honesty and being truthful with your feelings.Â

Find Your LoveÂ
Drake is determined to make a connection with someone he thinks he has a chance with. He feels if he gives all his heart, they would be unstoppable together. Not only is this a great song, but the lyrics connect with people that have been through the same thing.

Marvin’s Room
If you want emotion this joint is for you. Who hasn’t drunk text or called that person they’ve been trying not to call before. We are all guilty … if you drunk. Liquor is that liquid courage and Drake seems to bring us into his world as he shows how sometimes people get jealous. Drake has the ability to put emotion to lyrics. Marvin’s Room is an amazing account of rejection and loneliness’. Great mood music.

Hold On Were Going Home
This joint is a feel good joint that just makes you want to dance. It hooks you as soon as the beat drops and Drake let’s his voice glide over the production. It seems like Drake has his eyes on R&B as well as the Hip Hop crown. He is sounding more and more like a crooner then a lyricist. Some may say R&B is died but it doesn’t seem like it when you have rappers singing more then rapping. This song is soft but still got that knock that will rock at a get together or a club. Go Drake.Â
