It has been less than a week since the artist Drake released his sophomore album entitled Take Care and the buzz around it is unbelievable. Unfortunately, the cd leaked not too long before the cd was to be released. However, from what I have read and heard myself, the leaking of this amazing album did not affect the sales. Although Drake is known for his rapping and singing, this cd seems to consist more of the R&B side of him, which was not a bad move at all. But, we must not ignore the lyrical, rapping genius that comes out in some songs such as Headlines and HYFR.
Along side Drake’s lyrical talent we hear from The Weekend, Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Andre 3000, Stevie Wonder, on harmonica, and Nicki Minaj, all of which add their own sugar and spice to the recipe of a soon to be chart topping album! My favorite features have to be Rihanna, Stevie Wonder and of course Andre 3000. Unfortunately we do not hear much from Andre 3000 these days but he always delivers on every single track he is on.
Overall, the album is crazy good! Drake has done it once again and I, along with many others, cannot wait for more. Until then, Take Care.
