Young Money star Drake has decided to continue teasing fans eagerly anticipating his upcoming Take Care album by releasing a new record called "Marvin's Room."
The record is reportedly produced by Drake's righthand man, Noah "40" Shebib.
Get excited, Drake fans. According to his website, his sophomore album, Take Care, is due out in October and we should be hearing the first single in July. And if that isn't enough for y'all, he has also come through with a brand-new track called "Marvins Room." It's far less rap-heavy than "Dreams Money Can Buy" and instead features Drizzy throwing on his R&B sad-man/storyteller hat throughout the nearly six-minute-long track. The result is a pretty epic cut that includes a track-ending piano solo and producer Noah "40" Shebib's trademark watery 808s. A single this is not, but I'll be d*mned if it won't make for a killer deep cut. (Prefix Mag)
Drake also revealed plans to drop Take Care on his 25th birthday, October 24th.
"Marvins Room: Another piece of the story.Single coming in July. Take Care coming Oct. 24th.Download Here http://bit.ly/kzclvX," Drake re-tweeted from @WelcomeOVO.

Last month, Drizzy hinted at some social research he had planned for Take Care.
"So this is my first Memorial weekend really particpating this heavily," Drizzy said from the set of DJ Khaled's "I'm On One" video shoot in Miami. "I just want to get out there and touch the people, slap everybody's hand, see the women; just let them know im out here. Let them see me, because they havent seen me in a while." It isn't all work however. Drake hints that will be observing the crowds and using his expirence to fine tune his album. "And I got this album coming it's called Take Care, so I just really want to get out here and check the climate. I wanna hear the records, see how everybody's moving, see what everybody's lovin', because I know I got a great body of work," he said. "I'm ready to give it away, I'm using this weekend as study research. I'll be getting as drunk as I can trying to fit in, doin' it like that." (RapFix)
Drake recently raised eyebrows after dropping his new "Dreams Money Can Buy" single.
"My favorite rappers either lost it or they ain't alive," he raps in the second verse of the song, rumored to be the intro to his new album, Take Care. Fans quickly began assuming Drizzy was taking a jab at his "Light Up" collaboration partner Jay-Z, whom he's regarded as a mentor and one of his favorite rappers. (Neon Limelight)
Take Care is slated to drop Monday, October 24th.
