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…

I never post because I usually edit, but I’m the only one awake for this right now. Avicii has finally released his much anticipated “Levels” EP. Although there was speculation about “Levels” being an album, it is actually a four song EP which includes a radio edit, an original mix, and instrumentals for each of them. Although “Levels” became popular months ago, the song was never officially released. With the backing of Universal Music and Island Records, the #6 DJ in the world and his management finally decided to release the hit record which has changed the game of progressive house and given many of us a reason to live. If you don’t already have this song, I will pray for you and demand that you repent immediately. The link to the iTunes EP is provided below (Note: The link provided is for the Swedish iTunes. It is not available on the US iTunes yet. We will update it when it is available). – Jason (@shaqiechan) If you live in Sweden, you can buy it on iTunes right now here. If your from anywhere else click “Read More” to stream/dl the original version or download the whole EP.
