Drake recently revealed that he’s taking a break from working on his highly-anticipated R&B mixtape, ‘It’s Never Enough,’ to focus more seriously on rapping.
“I been rapping a lot lately,” Drake told MTV. “Me and [producer] 40 have been doing some great rap music, so I sort of took a hiatus on the R&B for a second. It’s cool to do R&B, I love it, but it’s just hard for me to always commit to it. Because some nights, I get in there and 40’s beats, as melodic or R&B-driven as they may be, just have that right pocket that I just wanna spit.”
Though fans seemed excited for ‘It’s Never Enough,’ Drake revealed that, while he takes a break from R&B, he’ll be working on the followup album to his platinum-selling debut, ‘Thank Me Later.’
“I’ve now completed the second song for my album,” he explained. “So I only had one song before for the new album; two nights ago, I did the second song. I’m loving it. I’m loving the sound. I’m excited again.”
This is great news if you are like me and can’t stand it when Drake starts to sing ballads. Let’s be honest the kid aint a singer and is 100x better as a rapper. When I hear him sing I get nauseated. I’m glad he is deciding to stay in his lane. Lets hope that RnB mixtape never gets released.
