His new album just leaked a week before it drops, Drake took a moment to reflect on his debut effort, last year's Thank Me Later. In an interview with the LA Times, Drake said he didn't think he quite lived up to his potential on TML.
“To be 100% honest … I wasn’t necessarily happy with Thank Me Later. People loved it [but] I just knew what I was capable of with a little more time,” he said. “I’m very confident in Take Care. I definitely made the exact album that I wanted. Will it appear that way to the world? I’m not sure, because its definitely different. It’s not 15 ‘I’m On Ones.’ It’s not ‘She Will.’ I’m very happy with [Take Care]. More so than I’ve ever been with a project.”
