This week, Drake released the "Headlines" track, his first single from the upcoming "Take Care" album. Recently the Young Money artist sat down with Billboard to talk about the new song and his sophomore album which he is calling his "best project." Drake first broke done the "Headlines" track which he says is "by no means is it the best song."
"I always try to put forth a song with a message. A lot of people pick their single by what's the strongest song. I don't really do that. I like to make sure that the content is very relevant to right now," Drake says. "I want people to party to it but at the same time the fans, the people that care about my career, the people that follow me, will hear a message in it." (Billboard)
Despite having his first album "Thank Me Later" do very well, including scoring the number 1 slot on the digital albums and tastemakers albums list, Drake insists the best is yet to come.
"This is really, in my opinion, my best project," Drake says. "There's a lot of songs on it. Although people encourage me like, 'Oh, do 11, 12 songs,' I think there's going to be probably 18 songs on it. It's very reminiscent of 'So Far Gone' but the production has stepped up like 10 notches. I feel like I've gotten better at rapping, so I'm really excited for people to hear the bars." (Billbaord)
