In the music world nowadays, it seems that no matter who you are your album will leak before it is released. Just a few months after it happened to his boss Lil Wayne and his platinum album Tha Carter IV, Drake’s highly anticipated second studio album Take Care has leaked.
After leaking this week, many have already got their hands on the album and heard it start to finish. And the reviews are in.
Take Care is a huge success. As expected, the album features fellow members of Young Money Cash Money Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne. Take Care also features Rihanna, The Weeknd, Rick Ross, Andre 3000, and the legendary Stevie Wonder.
Upbeat songs like “Headlines,” “We’ll Be Fine,” “Make Me Proud” with Nicki Minaj, “Lord Knows” with Rick Ross, and “The Motto” and “HYFR” both with Weezy F Baby charge the album.
Drizzy Drake goes deep and touches on his soulful and emotional side on tracks like “Over My Dead Body,” “Marvin’s Room,” ”Doing it Wrong” with Stevie Wonder, and the title track with Rihanna.
And Drake pays respect to his mentor Lil Wayne on tracks like “Underground Kings” with a line taken off Wayne’s track “Duffle Bag Boy” and again on “Practice” where Drake takes it back to the Hot Boys days with references to Wayne’s “Drop It Like It’s Hot” and Juvenile’s “Back That Azz Up.”
It is clear to see why many fans are still planning to buy the album when it drops on November 15th despite already having it downloaded, it is hit album that propels Drake even further into stardom.
