“Looking forward to seeing you all soon.” – Drizzy Download: Drake “Started From The Bottom”
Directed by this guy. See also HYFR. Take Care.
Hello and welcome to my year-end list. I started my Albums of the Year post about 9 blogmonths (2 weeks) ago and realized very quickly that the majority of my favorite music from this year wasn’t on there. For me, 2011 was a big year for songs. Albums, singles, EPs, mixtapes, remixes, remix albums, free [...]

Florence and the Machine covering Drake’s “Take Care”, which samples the beat from Jamie xx’s remix of Gil Scott Heron’s “I’ll Take Care of You”, which is actually a cover of a Brook Benton song. Amazing.
UK Producer Star Slinger dresses up Drake’s Take Care opener and co-highlight, “Over My Dead Body”, with some drums and bass and some other things that all work great with the original. Grab it for free, below. Take Care.
In the time it takes the SkyDome roof to open up, Drake does the video for Take Care’s “Headlines.” Wears batting gloves and a Cosby sweater. October 24. OVOXO.
Drake tucks his napkin in his shirt. That’s just something they know. Take Care’s first ‘official’ single (but third leak from the album), the Bio-1da and 40 produced “Headlines”, streaming below. Grab a free download via his OVO blog, quickly. Take Care, October 24. Download: Drake “Headlines”
Drake has a hard time adjusting to fame in the drunken, smokey official clip for “Marvin’s Room”, one of his best tracks and alleged first single from his upcoming LP, Take Care (due this fall). I’ll start hating only if you make me.
An appropriate post for the middle of the night; The Weekend remixes Drake’s latest Take Care giveaway, “Trust Issues.” Remix and [improved upon?] original, below. Is it Thursday yet?
Or 1/2 2011, depending on if phrasing/math/logic is important to you. This list is somewhat in order, but it’s not really in order. Also, #1 is definitely in order. Some favorites missing here work better in album mode (or came out in 2010, e.g.: Smith Westerns), and will see you later on the Best Albums [...]
