Drake - Take Care (2xLP)
Take Care is the highly anticipated sophomore full-length release from platinum-selling, Grammy nominated recording artist Drake and follow-up to his 2010 breakthrough debut Thank Me Later. The album features guest appearances from The Weeknd, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Birdman, Nicki Minaj, and Andre 3000 along with production from the likes of Noah '40' Shebib, T-Minus, and Just Blaze among others.
"Drake's 2010 debut Thank Me Later was one of the most striking hip-hop coming-out parties in recent memory. The Canadian rapper's tales of the high life were tinged with a sense of regret that perfectly fit the spare, somber tone in his music. The much-anticipated follow-up is more expansive, with producers from Just Blaze to the Neptunes to Lex Luger creating tracks that range from piano-laden R&B to Southern hip-hop, and guests like Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, The Weeknd and Lil Wayne rolling through to liven things up. Drake is still the same lovably conflicted dude, and that's part of what makes Take Care...compelling." - Rolling Stone
