Drakes new album “Take Care” was supposed to be released on October 24th. Which is Drake’s birthday. However Drake has now decided to push it back to November 15th. The main reason behind it all is to do with clearing samples, which can take a long time! Check out what he said to say about it on his own blog OVO Blog.

The new date for Take Care is November 15th, 2011. I managed to create this album in my hometown of Toronto and the thoughts and stories I wanted to get across just became so clear. It truly felt like when I was here 3 years ago making So Far Gone. So I have completed 19 songs (17 on physical and 2 on bonus), and have run into a roadblock of clearing 3 samples in time to make the October 24th date. My options were to take the songs off and make the birthday release happen, or to take an extra couple weeks to get the paper work right and give you the album they way I NEED you to hear it. The choice was clear as day for me. November 15th you will get Take Care the exact way I created it with no trimmings. This music means too much to me to get attached to dates and I do apologize for the delay but I promise that it is only for the benefit of our experience together. Club Paradise Tour will also be moved to when students are back from the Christmas/New Year break so that I can get to more schools. New dates will be released in the next week…see you all soon.




I Personally think that this is a wise choice Drake could make. Not because of the Clearing samples but because I ain’t feeling this era AT ALL. However something doesn’t seem right. 3 Weeks before the album date and he has decided pushed it back? Something doesn’t seem right but we shall see how things go. Drake should probably release another song or another video to keep fans satisfied in the Long run! Or probably get a haircut.
