I grew up in a generation where when we liked a particular song of an artist, we buy his or her or their band’s whole album. We were ‘trained’ to actually buy the album – and it does help since I get to know the artist more and if he or she or they are worth following as a fan. I am saying this because I just discovered that I actually bought three of Drake’s albums – Thank Me Later, Scorpion, and this one I am reviewing now, Views. I wouldn’t really say I am a Drake fan but seeing that I have three of his CDs just means I was really into him! Well, that is true when it comes to the looks department, because, Drake does look good than most of his contemporaries. He’s like the rapper you wouldn’t be afraid to introduce to your mother. That part can certainly help any up-and-coming artist. But more than that, Drake had the ability to create a few catchy songs per album – which in reality, is what he actually needs theoretically, for these albums to sell in the millions. For Scorpion, he had “Nice For What”, “God’s Plan”, and “In My Feelings” which all went to #1 in the US charts, with the latter, spawning a viral video that was mimicked the world over. In Thank Me Later, he had “Find Your Love”, which went to #5 in the US charts. I guess for Views, I bought the album because of “Hotline Bling” and “One Dance”, which were radio staples here in Manila, but were also songs that we danced to in my dance classes in the gym. So even if I was not familiar with his other songs in his albums, at least I knew his hits, and those were enough for me to buy his albums.
