Drake Responds to 'Take Care' Leak

Drake

As most of you probably heard, Drake's mega-hyped sophomore album, Take Care, leaked last night a week before its November 15th release date. Just after a 16-song version of the album (one short of the supposed retail version) leaked, Drizzy tweeted, "I am not sure if the album leaked. But if it did thank God it doesn't happen a month early anymore."

Then a few minutes later, he Tweeted again, "Listen enjoy it, buy it if you like it… and take care until next time." Rather than being upset, he seems ambivalent, if not a little happy. As Billboard points out, Drake expressed his thoughts on album leaks not to long ago in an interview, predicting almost exactly when his own album would eventually leak. He said:

"I look forward to leaks -- knock on wood. I shouldn't probably, but I do. Like I said, if it's a reasonable leak, I look forward to it. We're all sitting here in the studio like, 'Oh man the night this leaks, it's gonna be so crazy!" People talk about, "Are you gonna go on the Internet? Are you gonna stay off the Internet? What are you gonna do?' So I'm looking forward to hearing the feedback from everyone -- that's gonna be an exciting night" when it comes out.

As much as I hate to download music before it's officially released, this one is going to be pretty hard to resist, even if it is missing one track. You can hear a handful of the tracks off Take Care right here via The NJ Underground's 'Building The Leak' series. Also check out the video for "Marvin's Room" below.
