Former Cash Money Records' artist Juvenile recently weighed in on Drake's highly anticipated Take Care album prematurely hitting the Internet and if the leak will ultimately hurt Drizzy's sales.
In Juvie's eyes, Take Care is too good of an album for it not to sell off shelves despite a leak.
"It's crazy, 'cause the album is stupid. You don't want the album to get bootlegged, but when the album is this good, I don't think it will hurt it. If anything it might help it in the end. I'm definitely squeezing him on my album too. Before this album leak happened I was already back and forth with his peoples to get clearance to do a song." (BET)
Last weekend, Drizzy addressed the LP's online leak.
"I am not sure if the album leaked. But if it did thank god it doesn't happen a month early anymore.," Drizzy tweeted November 6th.
"Listen, enjoy it, buy it if you like it...and take care until next time." (Drake's Twitter)
His album began leaking track-by-track around early November.
Nine days before its release date, Drake's sophomore album has sprung a leak, starting with Just Blaze-produced "Lord Knows," featuring Rick Ross, and "Take Care," featuring Rihanna. The two songs off "Take Care" (Nov. 15) hit the 'net tonight (Nov. 6) while Drake premiered The Weeknd-assisted "Crew Love" on Toronto's Flow 93.5. "I know you've been hurt by someone else/ I can tell by the way you carry yourself/ If you let me here's what I'll do/ I'll take care of you/ I've loved and I've lost," Rih Rih opens "Take Care." Drizzy and Rihanna reunite to promise to "take care" of their scarred lovers on the album title track, which also samples Gil Scott-Heron and Jamie XX's "I'll Take Care of You." (Billboard)
