Drake Responds to His Album Leak

  /  06.02.2010


While most artists are upset when their music leaks prior to its intended release date, Drake has taken a different approach to his recently leaked album.

The rapper’s debut effort Thank Me Later hit the Internet late Tuesday, two weeks before its June 15 release date. But instead of lamenting about its appearance online, Drake addressed the leaks by tweeting, “I gave away free music for years so we’re good over here…just allow it to be the soundtrack to your summer and ENJOY! JUNE 15th!”

He previously told Entertainment Weekly that his intention was not to top the charts with the album. “I didn’t make this album for commercial purposes. A lot of the verses are extremely long. I just made it to share with people. I hope they can enjoy,” he said.

Leaks aren’t always bad news. Just ask his Young Money boss Lil Wayne, whose album Tha Carter III sold over one million copies in its first week, boosted by his Internet popularity.
