Published Jun 23, 2011While Drake has been dropping songs left and right lately (see "Marvin's Room" and "Trust Issues"), the rapper has yet to officially announce a single for his upcoming album, Take Care. It looks as if Drizzy's about ready to start the promotion cycle proper though. While he didn't dish the details, we can expect that lead-off single to be out soon and chances are it will feature current partner in crime the Weeknd.
"The single's dropping a week-and-a-half, two weeks," Drake told the Fader. "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."
What can likely also be expected is Drake's patented, half-sung, half-rapped, heart-on-his-sleeve delivery. While clearly a ton of us are down with Drizzy's flow, he's addressed those that consider him "too emo."
"I only really know how to do one thing. I don't know how to make generic songs about the struggle and things that aren't about me, I just know how to make songs that are about me," he said. "If I make a song that's emo or emotional, then I guess, yeah, I'm going to stick to that. I make songs about my life, because if you want me to be honest with you, that's the best way I know how. The things I've experienced and the things I've lived. That's what I like to do."
As previously reported, Take Care comes out October 24.
