Drake says he now plans to release his official debut album "Thank Me Later" in March of 2010 but even with the delay, the 23-year-old Canadian says he is happy with how it's turning out. "I’m making progress on it," Drake said with a smile Wednesday night. "I’m hoping for March now. It’s just pulling everybody together: I had a wish list for my managers of everybody I wanted involved that stem beyond hip-hop. I’m trying to pull it all together." One name on Drake's list is Sade. "I’m really trying to work with Sade," he revealed. "Lil Wayne will be on it. Young Jeezy, Jay-Z, Kanye will be doing work on it. It’s in the family."
