Chapter 286: Starships

10s pop

Drake has a strong claim to the title Defining Artist of the 2010s. Combining the branding savvy of Diddy and the depressive tendencies of Kanye, he’s cocky but conflicted, introspective without being particularly self-aware, easy to hate but hard to turn off. “Headlines” was one of his first in an exceptional run of singles - responding to a critic with a faux-humble “Ooh, I needed that” is perfect, shameless Drake. Other pop luminaries followed in his melodramatic wake, from Sia’s glass-shattering wail to Lana Del Rey’s infinite sadness.
