Young Money rapper Drake recently spoke about his upcoming "Thank Me Later" album recently leaking. Thankful that his album only leaked eight days before it's official release date, Drake says that he thinks it will actually help him.
“I look forward to leaks-knock on wood. I shouldn’t probably, but I do. Like I said, if it’s a reasonable leak, I look forward to it. We’re all sitting here in the studio like, “Oh man the night this leaks, it’s gonna be so crazy!” People talk about, “Are you gonna go on the Internet? Are you gonna stay off the Internet? What are you gonna do?”
40 protects the music really well, and I think God willing I get like the same thing I’m talking about, like a 10 day leak. And that’s something I’d be extremely excited about because I feel like if people get the opportunity to live with the music for a week before they go buy it, it’s only gonna help me, not hurt me. So I’m looking forward to hearing the feedback from everyone-that’s gonna be an exciting night when it comes out." (Billboard)
