Drake’s much anticipated follow-up to 2009’s Thank Me Later was originally set to drop on Oct. 24, but the rapper has announced he will push back the release date. The change came due to “roadblock of clearing three samples” in time for a birthday release. Now Take Care will be released almost a month after its due date on Nov. 15.
The album will have a standard release as well as a deluxe edition. Two tracks (“Marvin’s Room” and “Headlines”) have already been released with six more confirmed. Drake mentioned at OVO Fest 2011 that there would be close to 20 songs on Take Care and he re-confirmed this again over the weekend.
