Drake was named one of GQs Men of the Year last year along with Kid Cudi and Wale, but this year, he scored his own cover of the men’s magazine. He celebrated the honor at a swanky bash at Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood on Wednesday (Nov. 17). In the cover story, he reveals that his sophomore album will be titled Take Care.
“Don’t think for a second I can’t do better,” he said of the follow-up to this year’s Thank Me Later, for which he has been working with Noah “40 Shebib, Boi-1da, and 9th Wonder. “For Take Care, I’m trying to find a way to make my raps shorter but catchier. I’m trying to condense my thoughts down to 16 bars. And it’s coming out more potent.”
