My Favourite Songs
Take Care Ft Rihanna
This is a slower song with a more pop/dance feeling to it, it is about wanting to take care of someone who you has been unlucky in love, there is a really cool beat to this song , it builds and the engery within it grows until the finish. This song features Rihanna, who is one of my favourite artists at the moment. I like this song as it is a little different to the other songs on this album.
Make Me Proud ft Nicki Minaj
This is a fun and catchy song about being proud of your partner, it is fast paced and fun and quite sexy but it has quite a cheeky element to it as well. This song features Nicki Minaj, and these two artists sound really well together as they have a quite similar style of music, this is my absolute favourite song on the album and I think it's definitely worth a listen, especially if you are a Drake fan.
This is a slower song where Drake shows off his singing voice as well as his rapping talent, it quite a dance fell to it. In this song he tells his story about how he became a rapper and how he still loves the people he was friends with before he became famous, this is a quite a nice song and is really easy to listen to.
The Rest of the Album
In this album Drake mostly raps, but he also sings and has a really easy to listen to voice. I really enjoyed this album and would prefer it to his first album Thank Me Later, it has a really cocky and cool feeling to it, but also is quite easy listening. I can't really say there are any songs on this album that I don't like, and there is a good mix between fun and sexy songs and slower songs.
Price and Availability
I bought my copy of Take Care for £9 in HMV, though you could probably buy it online for cheaper, I this was an ok price for an album as I have got quite a bit of listening out of it and normally put it on when I am exercising or driving about.
I think that this album was a really good buy for me, as a previous Drake fan I got exactly what I expected as the music has a similar feeling to his previous album Thank Me Later, however I think I prefer this album to his first attempt. I am really glad that I bought this album and think that if you like Hip Hop, RnB, Rap style music you will enjoy Take Care. Overall I would give this album 5 out of 5 stars.
