Over the weekend, Drake took to his October's Very Own blog to post an MP3 of "Headlines", the rumored first single from the hip hop star's eagerly anticipated sophomore album, Take Care.
"Headlines" is an assured first single, boasting a menacing, string-infused backdrop put together by Noah "40" Shebib and Boi-1da, whose deft hands produced some of Drake's most memorable songs. Lyrically, Drake is in the same state of mind he was in when he recorded Thank Me Later, and why wouldn't he be? In his head, he was already a superstar; he just now has the real world experience and bank account to back it up. Like he says on "Headlines", "I know I exaggerated things, now I got it like that."
To say "Headlines" sounds like your typical Drake cut wouldn't be inaccurate, but neither would calling this one of his most honest.
Word on the block is that Take Care is out October 24th, Drizzy's birthday. Listen to and download "Headlines" below.
