With Drake’s Take Care sophomore album set to drop November 15, he’s opens up on his setback with last year’s Thank Me Later debut.
In Drizzy’s eyes, the platinum-selling LP lacked a clear and concise narrative.
“Thank Me Later was just song, song, song, song, song, whereas So Far Gone was a consistent thread,” the Young Money MC said of his debut album in relation to his breakout mixtape. “It was a story to me. And Thank Me Later, I sort of didn’t have enough time mentally to piece together a story. It’s very tedious.” Call it a case of being his own worst critic, as last year’s Thank Me Later was met with favorable reviews and was commercially successful as well. Still, Drake aimed to tweak his creative process with his next album, due November 15. (MTV)
Personally, I enjoyed Thank Me Later a lot. Can’t wait for Take Care.
