Drake’s collaborative albums are a shift in the culture. The first joint project Drake had was with frequent collaborator Future. The two released the mixtape What a Time to Be Alive in 2015. The mixtape spawned songs such as “Jumpman,” “Big Rings,” “Diamonds Dancing,” and more. What a Time to Be Alive debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The project became both Drake and Future’s second albums to debut at No. 1 on the chart following If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late and DS2, respectively.
Future and Drake also collaborated on several singles before and after the mixtape was released, including “Way 2 Sexy,” “Where Ya At,” and their most successful single, “Life Is Good,” which is now 11× platinum certified by the RIAA. Their most recent collaboration was for the Atlanta rapper’s I NEVER LIKED YOU. Future, Drake, and Tems worked on “WAIT FOR U.” The song debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. In addition, the song also won a Grammy for all three of the artists for Best Melodic Rap Performance during the 2022 Grammys.
Most recently, 21 Savage and Drake dropped Her Loss in November 2022. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 200 which marked Drake’s 12th and 21’s third leader. Popular songs from that album are “Spin Bout U,” “On BS, “Treacherous Twins,” “Rich Flex,” “Jumbotron S— Poppin,” “Circo Loco,” and “Major Distribution.” The two are currently on the It’s All A Blur Tour which kicked off in Chicago in June. The tour will end in Columbus, OH, at the Schottenstein Center in October.
Prior to working together on Her Loss, 21 Savage and Drake collabed on “Knife Talk,” “Mr. Right Now” and “Jimmy Cooks” from the Toronto rapper’s Certified Lover Boy which dropped in 2021, and more.
