His mixtape, So Far Gone, spawned two top 20 singles and brought on two GRAMMY nominations. The spin-off EP, debuted in the top ten and sold over 386,000 copies. Drake hit the top 10 again with “Forever”, a track written for the LeBron James documentary, performed with hip-hop royalty Lil Wanye, Kanye West and Eminem. All this before even announcing the release date of his proper debut album.

We know now, of course, that his album is tentatively called Thank Me Later and that it will be released sometime in 2010. Confirmed tracks for the album include “Afrika Boombatta” with Lil Wayne, and “Light Up” with Jay-Z. Drake has also expressed interest in working with Kanye West, André 3000, Kid Cudi, T.I., Kings of Leon, Sade, and Eminem on the album. And at this point, I have no reason to believe that he won’t get everything he wants.

Before people started pulling their hair out, Drake has posted up what Pitchfork is calling Thank Me Later‘s first single, on his bog. Unsurprisingly, the song is a jam. Massive in almost every aspect, a quality that’s almost idiosyncratic when it comes to Drake. How does it size up, compared to No. 1 hits “Best I’ve Ever Had” and “Forever”? Drake’s onslaught on modern hip-hop is nowhere near “Over”, but its predecessors are noticeably superior.

To my surprise, Drizzy is offering “Over” as a no-strings free download to all his fans. Isn’t that nice? Listen to and download the track here:
