Drake Reveals Three Tracks From Take Care Album

Drake Reveals Three Tracks From Take Care Album


Drake‘s second album, Take Care, due October 24, is one of the most anticipated albums of the year. Rolling Stone caught up with Drake for an interview and a lot was said including how some of the tracks sound like, who got some feature spots and more.

“I hate singles,” Drake says. It’s a funny thing to hear from the rapper behind hits like “Best I Ever Had” and “Find Your Love,” but he says he’s always felt this way – now more than ever, as he puts the finishing touches on his second full-length LP, Take Care (due October 24th). “With this album, I want to tell a whole story,” he adds. “I don’t want people to just hear a piece and judge the album on that.”

Drake is home in Toronto, recording at his longtime producer Noah “40” Shebib’s studio. The vibe is industrial yet cozy: exposed brick, low lighting, plenty of high-grade weed and virtually no decoration aside from a vinyl copy of U.K. dubstep crooner James Blake’s debut on a windowsill. “This is home,” says Drake, wearing a T-shirt, black jeans and work boots. “If I’m in a big expensive studio, it starts messing with my head about what kind of music I should be making.”

To a degree, that’s what happened with his 2010 debut, Thank Me Later, which sold 1.4 million copies and transformed Drake from mixtape phenom to platinum-certified star. “In no way am I not proud of it,” he says, “but I think I got caught up in making it seem big and first-album-ish. I was a bit numb, a bit disconnected from myself. I wasn’t able to slow down and realize what was going on around me.”
