9) Make Me Proud Feat. Nicki Minaj
Drake brings in his friend, big sister, lover (who knows what they are these days) in what’s sure to be another radio hit. The song is a bit of an ode to a woman who Drake is mesmerized with – maybe Nicki herself? The two have a relationship that tabloid mags dream of. The song itself at its core is a bit cheesy -a bit weird to be singing about how proud of your girl you are. but I guess, when you’re Aubrey Graham, you can get away with these things. Nicki Minaj comes in and channels her inner crazy doing the standard voice changing and screaming that we’ve become accustomed to. She shows her versatility late in the track switching from rapping to a more melodic tone then to the Supa Dupa flow. Nicki is essentially the female version of Drake. In fact, I’m now convinced she should add this to her growing list of Alter Egos.
