While some love Drake at his hardest and fieriest (“Back to Back,” “Summer Sixteen”), some prefer the crooning softy marinating in heartbreak and jealousy (“Hotline Bling”), and others are into the seductive charmer with a newfound affinity for dancehall (“One Dance”). At this point, Drake’s been dominating the charts for so long that there’s a version of Drake for damn near every mood and occasion. Yes, the tickets to Drake and Future’s Summer Sixteen concert at Oracle Arena sold out in virtually seconds when they went on sale two weeks ago. But take solace in the fact that there’s another opportunity to listen to Drake with all your friends for a considerably lower price. This Thursday, Social Life Productions hosts MOOD: Drake Night, with DJs Mujie and ThatGirl spinning new and old Champagne Papi hits and cult classics all night.
