Drake has player written all over him.
The 23-year-old rapper's sexy as hell, he's good friends with lady lover Lil Wayne, and he's young and one of the brightest stars in the music industry today--the perfect formula for getting with as many ladies as he wants, whenever.
But the second single off his debut album, Thank Me Later, is a really sweet love song, something that's refreshing to hear in the hip-hop and rap industry today. "Find Your Love," which is rumored to be about Drake's ex Rihanna, is all about Drake's desire to have a full-fledged relationship with someone he cares about, not just some casual fling.
He sings, "I'm more than just an option, refuse to be forgotten, I took a chance with my heart, and I feel it taking over." Awwww. Now we not only have Drake's beautiful puppy dog eyes, we also have Drake sincerely singing about how he feels with his heart.
It sounds like Rihanna really did a number on poor Drake's heart, as he still seems to be pining after her. "I'm more than just a number, I doubt you'll find another, so every single summer, I'll be the one that you remember." Drake could have threatened the object of his affection with getting revenge by revealing incriminating stuff about her, or by hooking up with her friend, or by calling her out on her imperfections. Instead, Drake takes the classy route and builds himself up, making for a convincing argument that he really is a good lover and boyfriend--and not just because of what he can do physically, which is all too often what pop songs convey.
He's in his prime now, but in this track, Drake doesn't go over-the-top with sexuality--it's more about the heart, which makes for a very lady-friendly song that's nice to hear on the airwaves.
