Drizzy has pushed back the release date for the new album from October 24 to November 15 to give him more time to clear some samples.
Drake decides to move back release date of his upcoming second studio album "Take Care". The Canadian rapper is not happy with the pushback, but says he has to do it for the benefit of his fans. In his statement, he explains that he needs more time to clear some samples in his new songs.
"[I] have run into a roadblock of clearing 3 samples in time to make the October 24th date," he writes. "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," the rapper adds.
Talking about creative process of the album, Drizzy shares he crafted the record in his hometown of Toronto. "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)," he gushes.
Beside announcing the change of "Take Care" date, he also reveals the delay of his upcoming tour. "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," he posts.
