The Skinny: Drake’s Take Care will be one of the bigger releases of the season, one of the main ones that numbers-watchers will keep a close eye on. He’s achieved a sense of scale in which the State of Drake speaks for the State of the Industry, and his second full-length comes after a sustained period of marinating in seemingly every corner of the culture. For Take Care, Drake said he wanted to pare down a bit from the glitz and glamour that attended last year’s Thank Me Later, so at least some of the work was done near home in Toronto. Production comes by way of Noah “40? Shebib as well as Boi-1da and T-Minus.
Fast Fact: Curious quote by an ever-conflicted Drake in a video interview with Billboard regarding “Headlines,” the first single from Take Care: “By no means is it the best song on my album.”
