New Music: Drake - Thank Me Later

So as I'm sure you're aware Drake's highly anticipated freshman album, Thank Me Later,  which leaked weeks before his official release date of June 15th has arrived. There has been a lot of skepticism on whether he will in fact be able to top his phenomenal mixtape, So Far Gone, which could very much be mistaken has as his freshman album. It was by far one of the best mixtape & albums I've heard in a long time.

Thank Me Later features some hard hitters in the music industry like Jay Z, T.I., Swiss Beatz, & The Dream, which is bound to produce some great collabs...

As I am listening to the album as I type this, I find myself unsure whether it's a banger or not.  Both of Drake's singles, OverFind Your Love grew on me the more I heard it. I did not fall in love with it instantly, but now find myself hitting replay more than not. I have a strong feeling that I will feel the same exact way about this album the more I dissect the lyrics, beats, and bars. He did however get bonus points for using Aaliyah's - Let Me Know song remastered for his track Unforgettable ft. Young Jeezy. That beat goes hardddd!

The one thing I can say for sure is that his sound is unique and innovating, which takes an eccentric ear to truly appreciate. Each song takes you down a new pathway. This is not your typical Soldier Boy shit, it's a progression of music not of its typical kind.

P.S. After hearing it a couple times, I LOVVVVE IT!  LOL Click the link above to download now & cop the album June 15th. It's worth having it in the archives, at least to me it is ;)
