Flashback Friday: Drake and Eve

Lord, this Drake album has just been out a few hours and these stans are already going into convulsions on my timeline.

But I’ll be nice. Just this once. In honor of Aubrey Day, let’s look at these old favorites before diving into this latest, Scorpion.


Drake, Nothing was the Same (2013)

Drake knows how to make great singles, no doubt, but his achilles heel is putting together cohesive albums. Nothing Was the Same, his third LP, fell into the same uneven trap as most Drake releases but there are more than a few great songs on this one.

“Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2,” featuring Jay Z”

“Too Much,” featuring Sampha

Eve, Scorpion (2001)

You think Drake’s Scorpion album is rap’s first? Nah, in 2001, Eve’s hotly anticipated sophomore album is the one that helped her cross over into mainstream. Creatively, it wasn’t nearly as strong as its predecessor but you can’t deny its success.

“Let Me Blow Ya Mind,” featuring Gwen Stefani
