Drake Shelves R&B Mixtape to ‘Focus Completely’ on Album
Drake has announced that he will be shelving his highly anticipated mixtape 'It's Never Enough,' so that he can better focus on recording his sophomore album.
The Young Money rapper/crooner discussed plans to release the mixtape last year, leaking a teaser cover of TLC's 'I Get Lonely Too,' which he said would appear on the R&B-themed tape. After months of waiting, however, Drake has finally revealed on his blog that he will be putting the brakes on the tape, in order to "focus completely" on his new album, 'Take Care.'
"I am truly enjoying my life right now," Drake wrote. "It's been so long since I have wrote anything on here because I feel like for a while I was trying to digest it all and save it for the music. But it's finally set in that I am living my dreams and doing [it] with all my closest friends from Toronto. I wake up and never know what to expect from any given day but good or bad I always learn something from it. I have decided that I am going to push 'It's Never Enough' and focus completely on delivering 'Take Care' to you all."
Having just completed the European leg of his Light Dreams and Nightmares tour, which he had delayed due to his mother's illness, Drake continued to say that he is finally in the perfect headspace to finish his album. "I feel like my mind is truly ready to make this next album NOW and I don't want that feeling to escape me."
