Young Money rapper Drake has reportedly announced the title to his Thank Me Later follow-up sophomore album.
According to reports, Drizzy’s second effort will be titled Take Care.
Drake’s Thank Me Later was a platinum smash around the world, spawning the hits “Over” and “Find Your Love” but Drizzy’s not resting on his debut’s success, even claiming that he may have made mistakes in the album’s production, promising that his second album would make up for any shortfalls. Production on Drake’s second album reportedly comes from 9th Wonder and DJ Premier so far, but every album in “pre-production” in hip-hop is produced by those two so we’ll see. The title Drake’s picked out for the album is Take Care. We will. (RWD Mag)
Earlier this year, Drake said he was contemplating a different album title.
Drake’s debut album hasn’t even hit stores yet, but he’s already thinking of a second album title. Moments is the name he’s been tossing around for his sophomore effort, reports the Los Angeles Times. While nothing has been set in stone, he explained the reasoning behind the title. “Hip-hop is all about moments,” said the 23-year-old rapper. “You look at people who were hot three or four years ago who are sitting around reminiscing. It’s fickle. It’s agame of moments. I’m the moment right now.” (Rap-Up)
Hip-Hop pioneer DJ Premier recently revealed his involvement on Drake’s next LP.
“I met Drake at the Jay-Z and Eminem concert at Yankee Stadium. A good friend of mine does some charity work forDerek Jeter and was also working with Drake…He told me Drake wanted to come say ‘what’s’ up real quick before he got on the stage with Jay…He said ‘Yo next album I want to do some stuff [with you]’ and that’s pretty much the end of it.’ He comes down and sits down next to us to watch the show and everybody in all the other suites next to us started bugging. He was just chilling there and not acting like he was too cool.” (VIBE)
Young Money CEO Mack Maine also recently updated fans regarding Drake’s progress on his second solo project.
“Drake’s crazy,” Young Money president Mack Maine said in an interview. “He’s doing a [R&B] mixtape right now. He called me one night, like two in the morning. He has the intro done for the new album. We was discussing dates where he should come back. That’ll be soon. And this mixtape, he’s gonna put that out quick. His formula is crazy. He works fast. I can’t give the secret away to the formula. He’s a musical genius. The way he and [producer] 40 put things together is crazy.” (MTV)
No further details have been revealed as of now.
