“Best I Ever Had” is the first single from Canadian rapper Drake’s first EP So Far Gone. It first became prominent from the release of Drake’s third mixtape of the same name. In 2009, the song was named the “Hot Rap Song” of the year by Billboard. The song’s popularity helped Drake decide to release So Far Gone as an EP, available for purchase. The song was nominated for two Grammy Awards; Best Rap Solo Performance and Best Rap Song. The song samples “Fallin’ in Love” by Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds and “Do It For The Boy” by Lil Wayne. In early 2010 it was also nominated for Single of the Year at the 2010 Juno Awards, but lost to Michael Bublé’s “Haven’t Met You Yet” The song is also included on Drake’s first album Thank Me Later, as a bonus track on the Japanese version of the album and on iTunes in several countries. It was released as the third single from the album in the United Kingdom on October 11, 2010 as a double-A-side single with “Fancy”.
