New Music: Drake f/ Rihanna - 'Take Care'
Drake rekindles the flame with Rihanna on the title track from his sophomore album Take Care, due November 15. The repeat collaborators tell a familiar tale of love lost over the piano and drum-patterned beat, which samples Jamie xx’s remix of Gil Scott-Heron’s “I’ll Take Care of U” and Lesley Gore’s “It’s My Party.”
RiRi reaches out a hand to a vulnerable Drake. “If you let me, here’s what I’ll do/ I’ll take care of you,” she sings on the tender hook, while Drizzy says he’ll be waiting for her “when all the baggage just ain’t as heavy and the party’s over.”
The Canadian rapper took to Twitter to address the album’s premature leak. “I am not sure if the album leaked. But if it did thank god it doesn’t happen a month early anymore,” tweeted Drake. “Listen, enjoy it, buy it if you like it…and take care until next time.”
