Drake’s Producer Says Second Album Is ‘Incredible’
After a short hiatus, and now defunct attempt at an R&B mixtape, Drake is finally ready to offer up his sophomore release, ‘Take Care.’ According to his producer Boi-1da, the effort tops its predecessor.
In mid-June, Drizzy gave fans a taste of what they can expect from the release, dropping the track ‘Marvin’s Room,’ which he says is not an official single but will make the album. Even other musicians have taken note of the catchy love song, with the likes of Chris Brown and Teyana Taylor both taking a stab at their own version of the drunk-dialing anthem.
In lieu of the positive feedback from the song, Boi-1da, who began working with the Canadian MC long before his career took off, reveals that ‘Take Care’ will be nothing short of amazing. “It’s going to be incredible,” he tells the BoomBox. “I’m not going to ruin anything for you but it’s going to be great music. We’ve been working on it for a while. We started working on it immediately. [Our inspiration] is to get to the next level. We all just want to show our abilities once again and we just want to show the world.”
If his previous success is any indication as to how well the second release will do, Drake will be just fine. His mixtape ‘So Far Gone’ spawned the hit single ‘Best I Ever Had,’ earning him a Grammy nomination before he even released an official album. Additionally, the 24-year-old’s ‘Thank Me Later’ album debuted atop the Billboard charts selling over 400,000 copies in its first week and went on to earn Drake even more Grammy nods.
Although he has yet to take one of the golden trophies home, the success of his second album could quiet any doubt surrounding a sophomore jinx, when ‘Take Care’ hits stores Oct. 24.
