in 1966, john len­non said the Bea­tles were big­ger than Je­sus. In 2018, Bill­board de­creed Drake was big­ger than the Bea­tles when he smashed a long­stand­ing Fab Four record: seven of his songs ap­peared on the Top 10 si­mul­ta­ne­ously. Also this year, he opened the sports joint Pick 6ix, re­united the De­grassi crew for the “I’m Up­set” mu­sic video, pro­duced the po­lice-vi­o­lence film Mon­sters and Men, and de­liv­ered the song of the sum­mer, “In My Feel­ings.” All of this mat­ters be­cause, out­side of Canada, the first—and some­times only—thing mil­lions of peo­ple know about Toronto is that it’s Drake’s home­town.
