Drake Talks Album Leak

Published: Wednesday 2nd Jun 2010 by Sam

In the wake of the leak of Drake‘s hotly anticipated ‘Thank Me Later’ LP (which is set to hit stores June 15th ), the Young Money star has taken to Twitter to air his opinions on matters. Check out what he had to say below…(via Rap-Up)

How refreshing was that?! An artist who is able to rationalise the reality of the industry today (i.e. leaking being an inevitability) and confident enough in their body of work to not see it a problem. Kudos to him…

    I listened to it, it didn’t live up to his hype. “Soundtrack of the Summer”? Jimmy try again.

    i’m going to have faith in Drake by not listening to the leak.
    my summer officially starts on the 15th of June

    Oh cmon. Artists put in months/years into their albums to make what they believe is a solid effort. Youre telling me they shouldnt feel some type away about people getting early access to it and downloading it illegally? SMH

  12. BOOMPOWBOOM June 2, 2010

    His album will still do fine..

    And your right just because songs leak don’t mean anthing. If u flop than its because no one cares for you not because of leak songs.

    Hell Beyonce’s “Sweet Dreams” was leaked in 2007 and it still made it to number 10 on the billboard charts in 2009 when it was released.

  13. NAJ June 2, 2010

    Surprising response by Drake…but I do agree with @Alex tho…still surprising that he took that attitude. Whatever the case, I’ll be buying!

  14. BEYONCE VS. WORLD June 2, 2010

  21. International Asshole June 3, 2010

    people forget that The Carter 3 leaked weeks before it came out..and Weezy still sold 1 million in a week. I think Drakes good either way as far as sales. And money, because I heard his signing bonus was huge. I loveeee Drake! Im gonna have to wait until I actually buy the album to hear the rest..

  22. tweetypiebabe1 June 3, 2010

    This is why I <3333 Drake! And to international asshole exactly what others were saying! Sometimes leaks HELP album sales!

  23. sALZ June 3, 2010

    this is going straight to number 1!!
    i wish you happiness and success Drake, don’t worry, you humility and good sprit will pay off one day!

  24. annon June 3, 2010
