Drake Is One Song Away From Completing ‘Thank Me Later’
At a defining moment in his artistic progression, Drake checked-in from the studio Wednesday morning to let fans know that he's one song away from completing 'Thank Me Later,' his debut record. Given the hype behind the full-length (Drake's mixtape was nominated for two Grammys before any official debut was released), the Canadian crooner provided an interesting peak into his studio mindset.
"The sun just came out," he wrote. "I mean I haven't seen it yet cause I am in the studio but I know it did. So good morning. I am working on the last song for 'Thank Me Later.' What a different journey it's been this go round. I wish I could share so much more with you but there are just too many new people involved who have dedicated their time to 'the reveal.'
While he's tempted to throw the album on the 'Net as a free download, Drake is letting the music business take its course on this one. "Remember the days of well thought out visuals, album thank you's, funk flex rants, all the things that came with the release of a new album, the things we'd look forward to...," he continued," well I hope I can make you remember. I've worked hard on this body of work and I feel like every artist involved has given me their absolute best."
Drake elaborated that he truly cherishes being able to share his music with so many interested listeners. "I cannot wait till it's yours," he continued. "The relief I will experience on release day will be euphoric. I look in peoples eyes and see not so much the doubt, but the uncertainty, the question that looms ... and whatever the answer is I think we're both ready for it. These overwhelming moments are to be cherished."
