As far as we know, Drake has never recorded with a dancehall artist, or voiced a track on a dancehall riddim. Yet, heโ€™s been teasing a dive into the genre for nearly his entire career. Heโ€™s fostered a friendship with Popcaan, rolled through Jamaica with Mavado, and offered to soundclash Lil Wayne. His latest overture to a genre that is clearly one of his greatest influences came in the form of his โ€œHotline Blingโ€ video, in which he is seen doing the Log On dance (among other steps) with Jamaican-Canadian choreographer Tanisha Scott.

Scroll through for a rundown of all of Drakeโ€™s most notable โ€œdancehall moments.โ€
