Drake's album FINALLY drops...so should we thank him?
The wait is over folks...Drake's long awaited album Thank Me Later has dropped. Now, I know it seems as though this 23 year old kid has been around the block and already released an album due to his heavy rotation on top 40 stations; The truth is, everything we've heard from Drake before this was from a mix tape not an official album. Thank Me Later, is a mix of smooth beats and is a blending of rap and r&b so there's stuff to hype you up as well and mellow you out. Although, the sound is great it was not quite what I was expecting. I think the anticipation of this cd was its downfall. Since Drake is a rapper I figured the album would have more...rap songs. My question however is, does Drake deserve a thank-you for bringing us his first studio album? I'll let you answer that.
Here's some selections I've made that I thought were the best off the album:
Find Your Love
And maybe his best song yet, "Tweet, Tweet" w/ Jimmy Kimmel
