Looks like Drake fans will have to wait a bit longer than expected to hear his highly anticipated debut LP, 'Take Care.'

The Toronto native has announced he will delay the debut of his sophomore album as a result of imperative sample clearances appearing on the effort. Originally scheduled for a Oct. 24 release -- the same day he will be turning 25 -- the hip-hop poster boy will now embrace a Nov. 15 date.

The 24-year-old took to his OVO blog to share the news with his legion of followers. "So I have completed 19 songs (17 on physical and 2 on bonus), and have run into a roadblock of clearing 3 samples in time to make the October 24th date," Drake shared. "My options were to take the songs off and make the birthday release happen, or to take an extra couple weeks to get the paper work right and give you the album they way I NEED you to hear it."

He also revealed that his Club Paradise tour will now commence in 2012, with dates for the performance spree being revealed this week.

Drake released his debut album, 'Thank Me Later,' last year to much fanfare, scoring the No. 1 chart position on the Billboard Top 200. 'Take Care' is expected to follow the same course. The Young Money signee recently released a video for the LP's first single, 'Headlines.'

Read Drizzy's explanation for the 'Take Care' delay below.

The new date for Take Care is November 15th, 2011. I managed to create this album in my hometown of Toronto and the thoughts and stories I wanted to get across just became so clear. It truly felt like when I was here 3 years ago making So Far Gone. So I have completed 19 songs (17 on physical and 2 on bonus), and have run into a roadblock of clearing 3 samples in time to make the October 24th date. My options were to take the songs off and make the birthday release happen, or to take an extra couple weeks to get the paper work right and give you the album they way I NEED you to hear it. The choice was clear as day for me. November 15th you will get Take Care the exact way I created it with no trimmings. This music means too much to me to get attached to dates and I do apologize for the delay but I promise that it is only for the benefit of our experience together. Club Paradise Tour will also be moved to when students are back from the Christmas/New Year break so that I can get to more schools. New dates will be released in the next week...see you all soon.
