Today’s Throwback Thursday track is Drake’s “Best I Ever Had” from his third mixtape, So Far Gone. “Best I Ever Had” dropped as a single on June 9, 2009, although the song came out with the mixtape on February 13, 2009. This is the song that officially put Drake on the map as it was certified Double Platinum and reached number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100.
I picked this as today’s throwback because Drake is, allegedly, releasing his first mixtape since So Far Gone tonight, basically 6 years later on the same day. Take a moment to re-live the original days of mixtape Drizzy above.
P.S. Did you know that Drake originally made a different cover art for this single? It was considered too obscure for iTunes so they made a new one. Which looks better to you?
