As you may already know, Drake’s sophomore album Take Care leaked on Sunday night. The album exceeded all my expectations; it really is amazing. I highly recommend pre-ordering it. One of my favorite songs on the album is “Look What You’ve Done”. This song is a dedication to his family, and how they helped him become who he is today. The instrumental is merely piano music with no drums or beat, which makes the song very emotional and beautiful. On the first verse of the track, Drake talks about his mother and their relationship, including an explanation of a fight they had. The second verse is dedicated to his uncle (or aunt, we still don’t know for sure); he talks about how he encouraged Drake to always follow his dreams. The song ends with either his mother or grandma talking about him (there is much debate about this across the internet, but I think it’s his grandmother) This is one of the realest songs you’ll hear in hip-hop; Drake shows us once again how great he is at connecting emotions to his music.

At the end of this song there’s a voicemail from Drake’s Grandmother that says.
Hi Aubrey, I’m here sitting with my son having a little talk
And he knows how to get in touch with you now
To let you know how grateful I am for your help
In keeping me in this, in this comfortable place
All I can say, Aubrey, is I remember the good times we had together
And the times I used to look after you
And I still have wonderful feelings about that
So God bless you, and I hope I’ll see you…
The official music video for Drake and Rihanna’s radio hit “Take Care”. Also be sure to check out Drake’s new video for “HYFR”.
An inside look at the music video that is coming out soon. ‘Take Care’ is arguably one of the best tracks on Drake’s sophomore album and here they are holding each other. Drake needs to relax, she’s with Chris Brown again. Hit The Jump for more photos.
Google talks to Drake before his performance at Google Music’s launch event in Los Angeles. Hear him share his thoughts on the strength of the Nicki Minaj/Lil Wayne/Drake trifecta, remember wise words from Kendrick Lamar and sing praise for his collaborators Jamie XX and Rihanna.
Check Out Drake’s Take Care Tracks.
Take Care leaked a few days ago and from the looks of it, Drake did an amazing job on his sophomore album. Take Care has only one or two tracks that I’d say are ‘eh’. Now the deluxe edition tracks are surfacing, ‘The Motto’ Feat Lil Wayne is one bonus track.
We got the Official Tracklist yesterday and now a new single featuring Lil Wayne. There are 3 Weezy Tracks on Take Care. The Real Her is not the official version and will most definately be different when the album drops on November 15th. Listen, Download & Share.
This is a must. You have to give this a listen. TMinus produced this amazing beat to be Drake’s second single off ‘Take Care’ and got the Young Money Queen Nicki Minaj on it. Flex Bombs, but we’ll get you the CDQ very soon.
UPDATE: Yeah we got the tagless version. Enjoy!
