I have been obsessively playing a copy of Drake’s Thank Me Later for the past week so it is only proper that I do a review of the CD. How I obtained the CD, don’t worry about it, but put it this way, I just went out and actually bought it. Did I say I bought it? Yes! Go buy Drake’s CD; he did an excellent job considering the garbage that so-called “artists” put out nowadays.
Thank Me Later starts out with one of my favorite tracks, “Fireworks” featuring Alicia Keys.
Take a listen here! Fireworks By Drake ft. Alicia Keys
Sounds good huh? Wait, there’s more! Drake continues to “build up a better rapport…” with stimulating tracks like “Karaoke” and “Show Me A Good Time”. “Over”, “Fancy”, “Find Your Love”, and now “Miss Me” featuring the Young Money King himself: Lil Wayne have been played numerously on the radio so when I heard them on Thank Me Later I already knew the words. Knowing the words to these songs set off the perfect balance between the known and the unknown.
As for the other seven tracks I have failed to mention, I am absolutely speechless. You know why? Because every single song on Drake’s brilliant showcase of talent that we call a CD, I love! I enjoyed every song. Surprising but, true. Sometimes I’m lucky to even find three or four decent songs on an artist’s CD so when I listened to Thank Me Later, I was expecting the same yet received the opposite.
I can proudly say, GO BUY THAT DAMN CD Y’ALL…
