New Music: Drake – ‘Headlines’

Headlines

Drake makes “Headlines” with the first single from his sophomore album Take Care, due October 24. The Young Money superstar, who had one of the biggest breakthroughs of 2010 with Thank Me Later, silences his critics on the bouncy Boi-1da and Noah “40” Shebib production.

“I had someone tell me I fell off, ooh I needed that/ And they want to see me pick back up, well where’d I leave it at?” raps Drizzy, who will headline the second annual OVO Fest in Toronto tomorrow.

“The whole process has been about slowing life down and really pinpointing emotions,” the Canadian rapper told Rolling Stone of his latest project, which will feature collaborations with Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, and The Weeknd.

What do you think of Drake’s new single? Listen below.

    It’s a catchy song, pretty good. I like Dreams Money Can Buy and Marvin’s Room more than this.

    Drake’s a lot better off with 40 or someone else doing his singles than Boi-1da IMO. Boi-1da’s not bad, but his beats aren’t that great either. Best I Ever Had, Forever, Up All Night, Drake’s hooks carry those songs more than the production. That’s the case here, too.

    Take Care sounds like it’s going to be dope still, as good or better than Thank Me Later.

    Takes a few times for me to know if I really feel song.
    But I think this’ll be a hit. Sounds better than “Thank Me Later”…don’t really like the hook, but the rest is good.
    AND Drake, you better get a verse from Nicki on the album b/c “Up All Night” was the Best (and most wasted) single on TML.

    This must be the buzz/street single? Cause pop radio is not touching this.

    Having said that, I like it a lot.

    @Eric, He doesn’t care about pop radio. “Over” wasn’t a pop single either.

    Shade Reply:

    @meme, You are correct. If you don’t like something you shouldn’t be branded as a hater, buuuut if you give a bullshit reason as to why then yes you leave yourself open to be referred to as a hater.

  15. meme

    man i listened really really wantin to like this but it jus didnt do it for me. it wasnt catchy neither is it groundbreakin. For me to go out and spend my money a song gatta have a cathcy hook, a cracy beat or something with strong lyrical content. this song was neither.

    [Reply]

    Shade Reply:

    @meme, “It’s not about lyrics anymore, it’s about a hot beat and catchy hook” Eminem….come on if you have to be entertained by something catchy to like music then grow up

    [Reply]

    isabella! Reply:

    @Shade, when it comes to music in general the hook, and the beat make up the bones of the song, the verses are the other half, if you have strong lyrics but a crappy beat and hook then the song will be over looked.

    [Reply]

    Moe Reply:

    @isabella!,
    I understand what your saying but hip hop is a completely different topic. The lyrical content is what defines the artist as a “rapper”. @Shade, It was actually LL Cool J who said that not Eminem.

    [Reply]

    Shade Reply:

    @isabella!, I didn’t say they weren’t important now did I? I just said if you need them to be mainly entertained by the song then you need to grow up.

    @Moe: Eminem said that in a song.

    [Reply]

    Phoenix_Wright Reply:

    @Shade, Meme clearly said “strong lyrical content” too, so that was unnecessary shade throwing on your part.

    I knew it wasn’t going to meet my skyhigh expectations, but it was decent on the first listen. I’m sure after I play it one or two more times it’ll be my new anthem. The verses are dope, I wish he would change that hook though, it’s not really all that great

    This track is absolute fireee. Now this is what im talking about i only needed to hear this once and i love it. Over drizzys first single to his last album i needed to hear several times it was good but i like this wayyy better its catchy and the beat is dope. Great first single choice in my opinion, no features just drizzy.

    Sorry but the more i listen to drake the more i notice that big sean took over….his whole album shits on everthing that drakes been puttin out lately except for “im on one” and thats not even entirely all drake

    I like it. Not love … I love me some Drake, I’m just interested in hearing more. The radio gonna play it off the premise that it’s Drake & it’s YM. Not bad though.

    [Reply]

  52. KingKongQuishah

    It’s good. Not great. The beats really good but i think its just a lil weak on Drake’s rap. He’s still keepin it in the classic Drake style so i got nothin real bad to say.

    [Reply]

  53. LOL

    its ok.the beat is good but his played out singing and the 40 seconds of silence was unnecessary.

    I’ve said I didn’t like a song when I first heard it then I ended up loving it as I kept listening. You have to get used to it, let it grow on you. If you say you don’t like it, you automatically close your mind to it. This is HOT. Nobody can change my opinion, I love this song. Drizzy’s back, baby.

    @Bizz, Give it 4 listens and you’ll be hooked. His verses carry the track in a good way, why should he flex any other muscle when he can rely on the major one? Too many artists throw a bunch of distracting bells and whistles into songs – doesn’t end up sounding as real and pure as this. ya diig!

  71. s. grant

    He’s made better songs but this is still quality. One of those songs that you have to listen to multiple times before you start to enjoy it. It’ll become a hit because of the beat.

    Still lookin forward to Take Care. He has Stevie Wonder on it, enough said.
