Drake: Drizzy Drake had some big things to accomplish after coming off an incredible 2009 but he made it look easy in 2010. He released his highly anticipated debut album and it sold like hotcakes in its first week out. He even scored his first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with the help of his good friend Rihanna. Drizzy’s coming into 2011 as a Grammy nominee for Best New Artist and while only time will tell if he walks away with the official title, he definitely proved that he was one of them in 2010.
