Drake was born in 1986 in Toronto as Aubrey Drake Graham. His father is an African-American musician and his mother is a Jewish Canadian who worked as an educator and florist. Drake's parents divorced when he was five years old. He was raised in modest circumstances by his mother in Toronto and raised according to the Jewish faith. Because of his beliefs and his skin colour, he was often a victim of bullying and marginalization during his schooldays. Since he started acting early, Drake dropped out of high school.
He first gained attention as an actor in 2001 in the series "Degrassi: The Next Generation", in which he played Jimmy Brooks.
In 2006, Drake began publishing his first mixtapes and was starting to achieve acceptance as a rapper. Despite his initial success with his characteristic mix of hip-hop and R&B and the help of artists like Kanye West, Jay Z and Lil Wayne, he could not get a record deal.
In 2009, Drake's single "Best I Ever Had" became a hit in the US and eventually helped Drake to sign with Universal Records.
For his debut album "Thank Me Later", which was released in 2010, he collaborated with Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Jay Z, Alicia Keys and other well-known artists. The album reached number one in the US charts and received platinum in the US and Canada. Besides Eminem's album "Recovery", Drake's debut was the most anticipated album of 2010.
In 2013, Drake received a Grammy Award for Best Rap Album for his second album "Take Care". At the Grammy Awards, Drake also introduced his new single "Started From The Bottom" from his third album "Nothing Was The Same". This album also topped the charts in the US and Canada.
Drake's success continued after the release of the album "Views". The single "One Dance" became a mega hit all over the world. It reached first place in countries including Australia, Canada, Switzerland, New Zealand, Great Britain and Germany. Between his album releases Drake released numerous mixtapes, which were also very successful commercially and got top chart positions. In early 2018, Drake's EP "Scary Hours" featuring the releases "Diplomatic Immunity" and "God's Plan" was number one in the US charts and became its fourth number one single in the US. The number one position was replaced by Drake's "Nice 4 What" from the album "Scorpion".
In 2018, Drake broke a 54-year-old Beatles record: all the songs in his new album reached the Billboard 100 charts, seven were even in the top ten.
