Drake’s ‘Take Care’ becomes topic of conversation in D.C.


(Mario Anzuoni - Reuters)
Drake, one of the hottest R&B stars on the planet, was planning on releasing “Take Care,” his highly anticipated new album, Nov. 15. But the Internet got its hands on the leaked tracks a week early.

But just because the listening public now has access to the 25-year-old’s newest album doesn’t mean it has stopped wildly speculating about how good — or bad — the album’s content might be.

Fans took to Twitter to start the #TakeCareComesWith hashtag, and the following weird conversation soon took off in D.C.:

Drake’s classy response to all the commotion was this: “Listen, enjoy it, buy it if you like it ... and take care until next time.”

What are your hopes for “Take Care”? Drake was originally scheduled to perform at the nearby Patriot Center on Nov. 15 but rescheduled once the album’s release date was announced. For more, check out the Click Track bloggers, who loved his 2010 album “Thank Me Later.”
