Who is he in the first place?
Aubrey Drake Graham (born October 24, 1986) is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, and actor. Drake initially gained recognition as an actor on the teen drama television series Degrassi: The Next Generation in the early 2000s. Intent on pursuing a career as a rapper, he departed the series in 2007 following the release of his debut mixtape, Room for Improvement. He released two further independent projects, Comeback Season and So Far Gone, before signing to Lil Wayne’9s Young Money Entertainment in June 2009. A couple weeks ago he released his new album More Life. (Wikipedia. 2017)
Oh and he is also known for publically declaring his love for Rihanna at the MTV Awards. Poor Rihanna, I felt for her. What an awkward situation was that.
Why is he so popular?
Why the hell is Drake even so popular? No offense, but his music isn’t that good (bold statement, I know!). His new single Passion Fruit, I mean OMG can a song even be more boring? I always fall a sleep at that song or I feel an angry rage in myself like a bull. Great feeling by the way, you should try it.
A little while ago, Drake was supposed to perform at Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam. He was supposed to kick off his tour there, so that was exciting for the fans. But obviously, he canceled to cash in big to ‘perform’ at a bar witswa. The show was rescheduled till a week later. Then he canceled again because he was sick. People were already in the venue waiting for him when he decided to not show up. Classy Drake. Now comes the good part. The show was again rescheduled to a few weeks later. He canceled again! When he finally decided to show up a few days later (‘cause it was yet again rescheduled), the venue was half empty. What kind of an artist does that to his fans? Canceling and rescheduling shows like it’s nothing. People pay big time for a ticket and then you treat them like shit.
In Holland, it’s a common saying now that if you pull a no-show it’s called you pull a ‘Drake’. That’s how we know you now pall. But still, I constantly hear his music on the radio. Also his hit single ‘One Dance’ from a couple years ago is still a popular one. Why is that boring song even on the radar? Why is he even on the radio? Why do people buy his tickets when he treats his fans like shit? I try to answer the question ‘why is Drake so popular?’ but I just can’t seem to figure it out. I just don’t like him I guess. I don’t hate him, because that is just a waste of time. I sometimes do think that he might be a good guy, but I just don’t get the huge popularity. Is he that good? Is he? I guess I have to listen to the album then…
