Drake’s “Take Care” leaks; “Enjoy it,” he says

Drake’s “Take Care,” is one of the most anticipated albums of 2011 and it has found its way on to the Internet a week before its release. At first it was just a pair of tracks — “Lord Knows,” featuring Rick Ross and the title track, featuring Rihanna — that leaked from the hip-hop star’s sophomore album. Now the entire thing is “out there,” prompting him to tweet, “Listen, enjoy it, buy it if you like it...and take care until next time.” While most albums inevitably leak, Drake and his management were hoping to follow in the footsteps of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s summer blockbuster “Watch the Throne,” which reached its official release date without leaking.

“Take Care” will be officially available on Nov. 15, the same day Drake was scheduled to play a since-canceled concert at the Patriot Center. Last year’s “Thank Me Later” checked in at No. 8 on our Chris Richards’ list of top 10 albums of 2010.
