Tensions between Young Money’s Drake and Universal Motown may be heating up after the Canadian rapper publicly blasted the label for allegedly taking down his music.
Writing on Twitter, Drake accused Universal of limiting his music’s airplay.
“Universal needs to stop taking my f*cking songs down. I am doing this for the people not for your label,” he tweeted June 23rd. (Drake’s Twitter)
Although he has yet to pencil in a date, Drizzy recently promised to drop a new single within two weeks off his upcoming Take Care sophomore LP.
“The single’s dropping a week-and-a-half, two weeks. It’ll be fun. It’s going to be a blast,” Drake told FADER writer Judnick Mayard. “It’s great. I’m really excited about it. Just trying out different things, different sounds, different flows… We’re all in a really great place in our lives just as a team, the team’s coming together. 40’s doing really well. We’ve got new editions. We have this affiliation with The Weeknd. It’s really great. He’s on the album a bunch. I’m excited about it just for the people to hear the evolution of the music.” (The FADER)
Aside from a new record called “Trust Issues,” Drake put out his “Marvin’s Room” earlier this month.
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 “Marvin’s 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 recently 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.
