Drake’s sophomore album, Take Care, was originally scheduled to be released October 24th. It now seems there has been some problems with paper work and getting samples from songs cleared in time for the original release. The new date for the much anticipated album is now November 15th.
I’m not sure that I can wait much longer for this album, but I clearly don’t have much of a choice. Luckily for all of his fans and me, Drake has already released two tracks off of the upcoming album. Both of the songs, “Headlines” and “Marvin’s Room” can be purchased on iTunes now. The album is still set to have a standard release as well as a deluxe edition.
Drake confirms close to 20 songs being complete, for the album, in his blog. He says:
“The new date for Take Care is November 15th, 2011. I managed to create this album in my hometown of Toronto and the thoughts and stories I wanted to get across just became so clear. It truly felt like when I was here 3 years ago making So Far Gone. So I have completed 19 songs (17 on physical and 2 on bonus), and have run into a roadblock of clearing 3 samples in time to make the October 24th date. My options were to take the songs off and make the birthday release happen, or to take an extra couple weeks to get the paper work right and give you the album they way I NEED you to hear it. The choice was clear as day for me. November 15th you will get Take Care the exact way I created it with no trimmings. This music means too much to me to get attached to dates and I do apologize for the delay but I promise that it is only for the benefit of our experience together. Club Paradise Tour will also be moved to when students are back from the Christmas/New Year break so that I can get to more schools. New dates will be released in the next week…see you all soon.”
With so much success with Drake’s mix tape, So Far Gone, and his 2009 album, Thank Me Later, fans are expecting a spectacular follow-up album. I am sure that he won’t disappoint. Drake has managed to show the world a different type of music without them fighting back. Instead his music is excepted and well liked no matter how he switches it up. He continues to grow as an artist and because we love him we grow as listeners.
I look forward to hearing what Drake has done this time. I just have to wait another month. In the meant time listen to his wildly popular single, “Marvin’s Room” here:
