Drake’s ‘Thank Me Later’ Leaks Online
Less than two weeks before its release Drake‘s debut album, ‘Thank Me Later,’ has sprung a leak. The record found its way to the Internet Tuesday (June 1) with news of its availability spreading like wildfire on social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook. In response to the news, Drizzy took to his Twitter page to announce that he was unfazed by the download drama.
“I gave away free music for years so we’re good over here,” he wrote. “Just allow it to be the soundtrack to your summer and ENJOY! JUNE 15th!” Although some sites refuse to post a link for the download (including us) others have given in to satisfying listeners early curiosity.
Drake has had an amazing year leading up to dropping the album. After several pushbacks, and a Grammy nomination for his ‘So Far Gone’ mixtape, ‘Thank Me Later,’ finally locked in a summer release date. The Canadian rapper revealed to us that this time around he worked to enhance the appeal of his successful mixtape while showcasing his artistic progression. “You can expect the same sound, I’m still going to be telling a story,” he said. “I’ve got a great story to tell now, so I’m excited to share it with the world.”
Arguably one of the most anticipated of the year, the album features a slue of hip-hop heavyweights including Jay-Z, T.I., and Drakeí’ Young Money counterpart Lil Wayne. ‘Thank Me Later’ officially hits stores June 15.
