Drake Takes a Break From R&B, Puts Mixtape on Hold
Drake recently revealed that he’s taking a break from working on his highly-anticipated R&B mixtape, ‘It’s Never Enough,’ to focus more seriously on rapping.
“I been rapping a lot lately,” Drake told MTV. “Me and [producer] 40 have been doing some great rap music, so I sort of took a hiatus on the R&B for a second. It’s cool to do R&B, I love it, but it’s just hard for me to always commit to it. Because some nights, I get in there and 40’s beats, as melodic or R&B-driven as they may be, just have that right pocket that I just wanna spit.”
Though fans seemed excited for ‘It’s Never Enough,’ Drake revealed that, while he takes a break from R&B, he’ll be working on the followup album to his platinum-selling debut, ‘Thank Me Later.’
“I’ve now completed the second song for my album,” he explained. “So I only had one song before for the new album; two nights ago, I did the second song. I’m loving it. I’m loving the sound. I’m excited again.”
Drake’s acclaimed debut album, ‘Thank Me Later,’ is in stores now.
