Drake Switches Thank Me Later Release Date To June 15

Published April 6, 2010

Not so fast. It turns out Drake will release his highly anticipated debut LP, "Thank Me Later" on June 15 via Young Money/Universal Motown.

As previously reported, Drake's album was initially slated to hit stores May 25.  Sitting with MTV.com before the first show for his Home Away From Home excursion at Slippery Rock University in Slippery Rock, PA, the Toronto rapper revealed that June 15 is the big day.

"Over," the first offering from "Thank Me Later," is gradually climbing Billboard's Hot 100 chart and the song's video, directed by Anthony Mandler ("D.O.A." and "Run this Town"), is scheduled to be released in the coming weeks.

Drake will be hitting a slew of different universities for his Home Away From Home Tour which commenced last night (April 5) at Slippery Rock University and will conclude in Plymouth, New Hampshire on May 8 at a private location.
