Drake 36th birthday: Announces a new album and releases a music video

Must read

A day before his birthday, Drake announced his new album, “Her Loss”, in collaboration with 21 Savage, and also released a music video for Jimmy Cooks.

On his 36th birthday, if you wish to sing happy birthday to him then get yourself birthday instrumental music to make this the best greeting.

Drake is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He was born on October 24, 1986, in Toronto, Canada. He grew up in West End, Toronto’s working-class suburb, until his sixth grade, and then moved to a relatively posh area of the city, Forest Hill.

Drake’s father was also a musician and drummer who worked with Jerry Lee Lewis, a country musician, and his mother was an English teacher at a local high school. Drake was raised mainly by his mother, as her parents divorced when he was just five. Drake has dual citizenship in the USA and Canada, thanks to his father’s American origin.

He first came to fame in 2006 when he released “Room for Improvement,” his debut mixtape, on his own without any record label. The tape did well for a debut album of a yet-unknown rapper.

Drake’s first hit song, “Replacement Girl,” came from his second mixtape album, “Comeback Season,” which was released in 2007. The song featured Trey Songz and brought Drake into the limelight.

After the success of “Replacement Girl” and “Comeback Season,” Drake signed a deal with Lil’ Wayne, which led him to join Wayne’s “Tha Carter III” tour, and both composed multiple numbers together during that time.

Drake went on to release the third mixtape named “So Far Gone” in 2009. The mixtape recorded more than two thousand downloads within just two hours after its release from his official website. He saw his first commercial hit from the mainstream music industry with his two singles, “Successful” and “Best I ever Had,” from the tape as both of them were awarded RIAA Gold certification and were able to reach the second spot on Billboard Hot 100 chart.

His first single music video, “Over,” was released in 2010 and topped the Rap Songs chart, and also picked at number fourteen by Billboard Hot 100. Drake’s second single video, “Find Your Love,” got even higher commercial success, although his third (Miss Me) and fourth (Fancy) in the same year did only moderately well.

Drake’s first studio album, “Thank Me Later,” in 2010, peaked top of multiple chartbusters, while his second album, “Take Care,” won him Grammy in 2013 in the “Best Rap Album” category.

Drake is one of the most successful rappers and singers of today. In 2020, he was ranked #49 in the Forbes list of the World’s Highest Paid Celebrities. His net worth is estimated at $250 million USD, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
