Drake, 'Take Care'

22. Drake, 'Take Care'

"We live in a generation of not being in love," sings Drake. The hip-hop satyr is out to change that, one wrecked hotel-room bed at a time. But Take Care soars because his appetite for pop emotion is even bigger than his booty-craving. Who else could get the xx, Rihanna and a Gil Scott-Heron sample into one massive make-out jam?
