“Lemon Pepper Freestyle (feat. Rick Ross)” – Drake, Rick Ross (currently at #2)
“Lemon Pepper Freestyle” sees Drake and Rick Ross boast about their lifestyle and money, but also sees Drake reference his son Adonis Graham first day at school and his life being a father. The song’s title is also a shoutout to Rick Ross and his love for the lemon pepper wings. The song acts the perfect way to welcome spring and brighter days with its slow tempo but catchy tune. Listen to “Lemon Pepper Freetsyle” on YouTube here.
“Wants and Needs (feat. Lil Baby)” – Drake, Lil Baby (currently at #4)
“Wants and Needs” is far more upbeat and intense than “Lemon Pepper Freestyle”, and is a collaboration between Drake and rapper Lil Baby, where the two try to differentiate the difference between what defines a want and what defines a need. The song already has almost 3 million views on YouTube – give it a listen here.
“What’s Next” – Drake (currently at #5)
In “What’s Next” Drake criticises the constant curiosity into his personal life, making light of the interest and boasting about all the wonderful things he did on Valentines Day, New Year’s and throughout the summer. Lyrically, Drake also boasts about his ability to create hit singles and make a large sum of money. There is currently no music video for the song, so check out the audio video here.
