Drake Preps ‘Take Care’ Singles for July

Drake

Get ready for the second coming of Drake. Young Money’s all-star is gearing up to release the first singles from his sophomore album Take Care next month.

The Canadian artist has been giving away tracks including the viral sensation “Marvin’s Room” via his blog, but something official is expected to arrive in July. “I got the singles dropping in like a week, a week and a half, two weeks,” he told FADER TV on Tuesday night. “It’s gonna be a blast.”

Drizzy previously announced an October 24 release date for the album, which falls on his 25th birthday. “I’m excited for people to hear the evolution of the music,” he said. “I know what it’s like to drive around Toronto and think about life, so I just make music for those kids.”

On the follow-up to his 2010 debut Thank Me Later, he’s once again drawing inspiration from his real life experiences. “I only really know how to do one thing. I don’t know how to make generic songs about the struggle or things that aren’t about me. I just make songs about my life ’cause if you want me to be honest with you, that’s the best way I know how, the things that I’ve experienced and the things I’ve lived.”

Featured guests on Take Care include Canadian singer The Weeknd (“He’s on the album a bunch”), who will perform at the OVO Festival in Toronto, along with Rick Ross, on July 31.

    ^^funny you’d be the first to respond to an artist you’re “over”! Yeah.

    Drake is that dude. This is the only CD coming out that I’m actually hyped for. The others have had weak singles and no buzz

    He had more than 3 record labels bid over him.There were 7+ record labels in a bidding war over Drake, just those 3 remained in the bidding war until the end, when Lil Wayne/Universal Motown ended up gaining Drake.Drake probably had the biggest bidding war over him than any other artist, any genre had for themself.Drake is capable of writing great raps, whether he is doing punchlines or whether he is discussing issues/mishaps/crucial points of his life.Drake is capable of writing great R&B as well.Drake is the total package when it comes down to a artist.After listening to Dreams Money Can Buy, Marvin’s Room, & Trust Issues, whether they are on Take Care, I’m definitely buying Take Care when it comes out on his birthday, October 24th.I put Thank Me Later in the ride & its not coming out until Take Care goes in.

    @Tony, Co-Sign. See if more people were smart enough to assess Drake like that like you do then more people would enjoy music for what it is.

    Drake can make really good RnB music but I just think rapping is what he does best. Honestly if most of the album is RnB (which will probably happen) he’s not going to get as much hype as last year .
