Review of my Favorite Drake Album  – Take Care

August 3rd, 2019 by

Drake Take Care Album CoverAfter the success of his 2010 debut, Thank Me Later, Drake is back with a confident sophomore, the Canadian singer/rapper stepping up his potent blend of atmospheric production, and mournful lyricism.

Take Care is an unbelievably plush album. Not only are the soundscapes on the album orchestral, ethereal, but the tone of the album is equally emotionally indulgent, Drake adopting the position of a somewhat world-weary player. The tone is set unmistakably with the opening track, Over My Dead Body, a piano-chord rich number. Drake boasts of his success, detailing a sense of disaffection in equal measure: “I was drinking at the Palms last night/ Ended up losing everything that I came with,” he raps, before adding, “Feel like I been here before, huh/ Still got ten years to go, huh.” It’s a tone that stays throughout.

  • Songwriter Tip:

    The only way to attain vision is to have reworked and redefined your musical style and ability to the point to where you become aware of yourself as an artist. One cannot tell you what their musical vision is; they can only show you. A musician with a vision has the ability to meld his personality into his music. He/She knows his/her strengths and weaknesses. Every factor is a building block to their music. When you realize your vision as an artist, you will begin to understand what you want, and where you need to go to get it. If you haven’t found it yet, don’t fret. Keep making music and assessing yourself as a musician. It will come in time. Will it help you grow as a musician? Definitely. It will put that extra edge in your music that screams your name whenever people hear it.
