We can leave a lot of things behind in 2017 (Christmas tree browsfestival fringeRoy Moore), but Drake we want to keep. And since you're probably still recovering from that holiday "Are you home?" text from your ex along with those Trump-supporting family members, it's safe to say, like most years, we'll be entering 2018 with plenty of emotions. To help you cope, we've compiled the best Drake songs for every type of vibe the next 365 days may bring. Plus, access to a complete "Listen to Old Drake Songs and Cry" playlist for your ultimate listening pleasure. (Thank us later.)
