Drake Reveals Lyrics on ‘Take Care,’ Says LP Nearly Done
It’s only been one year since Drake released his ‘Thank Me Later’ debut but it seems that fans have been waiting for the Young Money MC’s follow-up ever since.
After showing up on a slew of his hip-hop peers’ records, the 24-year-old is ready to give it another go by way of his second album, ‘Take Care,’ which is due out this fall. “I’m a good 80 percent done [with the album],” Drake tells The Boombox. “I been in Toronto for the longest time which is great. [The] album is definitely like a genuine reflection of my life past and my life present.”
The acclaimed rap star also details one of the lyrics featured on his forthcoming opus. “I have a line on the album where I say, ‘I feel like I was numb to it last year, but I think I feel it now more than ever,’ and that’s probably the best way I can paint the picture for you for this album,” Drake shares.
During his time recording the album in Toronto, Drizzy spent time with friends and family, which helped his creative process. “I’ve gotten to re-connect with a lot of people I haven’t seen in years. I got to see family a lot. It stirred up a lot of emotions that I probably wouldn’t have had if I had been on the road traveling the world, so it’s almost there. I got some great things. I’m very excited. I’m the most confident I’ve ever been, including ‘So Far Gone,’ including any mixtape, this is the most confident.”
The first single off the album, ‘Headlines,’ was released in July, peaking at No. 13 on the Billboard singles charts. ‘Take Care’ is due in stores Oct. 24.
