Drizzy encourages fans to buy the album despite early release.
Drake's sophomore album, Take Care, made an early debut last night, leaking online a little more than a week before its scheduled release date on November 15. The Young Money rap star seems to be taking the news in stride.
Drake took to Twitter to first express gratitude that the album stayed under wraps as long as it did, and then encouraging fans to buy it if they like what they hear.
"I am not sure if the album leaked. But if it did thank god it doesn't happen a month early anymore," Drizzy wrote when word began to trickle out. Later, when the leak was confirmed, he had a simple message for fans.
"Listen, enjoy it, buy it if you like it ... and take care until next time," he tweeted.
On Toronto's Flow 93.5 radio yesterday, Drake debuted a new song from the album featuring fellow Toronto native, The Weeknd, called "Crew Love." Previously, Drizzy had offered early listens of album tracks "Marvin's Room," "Headlines" and "Make Me Proud." Take Care also features guest appearances from Andre 3000, Stevie Wonder, Lil Wayne, Rihanna and Rick Ross.
