Drake Set To Release First Single From His New Album In July
With Drake’s sophomore album, 'Take Care', due to be released on October 24 - to coincide with his 25th birthday - the Canadian star has announced that the first single from the album will be officially released in July...
For the last couple of weeks, Drizzy has been giving away tracks via his blog, and after 'Marvin’s Room' became a viral sensation, Drake feels that the time is right to drop an official release from his eagerly-anticipated follow-up album: "I got the singles dropping in like a week, a week and a half, two weeks. It’s gonna be a blast."
As with his debut album, 'Thank Me Later', Drake will again be drawing on his life experiences to tell stories on his second album: "I only really know how to do one thing. I don’t know how to make generic songs about the struggle or things that aren’t about me. I just 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 that I’ve experienced and the things that I’ve lived."
