Name: Drake (Real name: Aubrey Drake Graham)
Where to see him: This Canadian actor-turned-rapper first stole our hearts playing Jimmy Brooks on Degrassi. Now he's singing his way into the hearts of girls all over the world with the release of his debut album, Thank Me Later. On his album, Drake collaborated with hip-hop megastars like Kanye West, Jay-Z and Lil Wayne. His current single, "Find Your Love," has already reached in the top 10 on the Hot 100 charts. Not to mention, he's like a "big brother" to Justin Bieber!
Why we love him: Drake doesn't hold back anything and is completely honest with his music. In his hit single, "Best I Ever Had," he reveals that he likes girls who don't try too hard. He raps, "Sweat pants, hair tied, chilling with no make up on -- that's when you're the prettiest." Aww!
He talks about... how he got into music: "Music has always been a major part of my life. My uncle is Larry Graham played bass for Prince, my father, Dennis Graham, wrote for Al Green. My dad drummed for Jerry Lee Lewis. I've always been around great music."
