Thank Me Later

24 Jun

Finally Drake released his debut album, “Thank Me Later” on June 15th and I’m prepared to provide my review. I’m giving this effort an 8 out 10. This is a good album not great nor classic, but he is clearly on his way and knows how to make good music.

Where he excels in creativity, melody, charisma, wit, and metaphors he falls short in lyrical prowess. His beat selection is dope, however this album is slow & has the effect of taking an ambien & benadryll. Overall this album is easy to play through but one must exercise patience. That withstanding he has a sure hit in “Miss Me”, a strong performance in “Lights Up”, lastly “Unforgettable” is clearly where Drake feels at home in between R&B and Hip-Hop.

What makes him most appealing is his candor, people want authenticity from recording artists as they’re a lot of frauds in the entertainment (mostly hip-hop). While some have complained about his singing I don’t mind it.  Drake has found a way to channel the vulnerable insecurities that males experience into his music. Perhaps this is reason enough for everyone to “Thank Him Later”.
