Drake appeared on Los Angeles' Power 106 yesterday to discuss his new album Take Care as well as share some music from the 17-song disc. However, he instead debuted TC's bonus track "The Motto," featuring Lil Wayne. (Four of Take Care's songs have already emerged, so it's understandable if Drake wants to keep the rest of the disc under wraps until its November 15th release date.) "The Motto" is a pretty straight-up song produced by T-Minus; it's more of a freestyle than the overblown emo-rap we're expecting from Drake's sophomore LP. Here's the clean version of "The Motto." Download this or the dirty version over at the rapper's October's Very Own blog. That's right, he's giving away his bonus track for free:
During his interview, Drizzy shared some more details about Take Care. Despite Stevie Wonder's absence from the track list, Drake promised that the legendary singer would still appear on the album, Consequence of Sound reports. The Amp's favorite emerging rapper Kendrick Lamar will also have a verse on the album, and Drake's fellow Torontonians the Weeknd will appear on a few songs, not just the previously advertised "Crew Love." He also premiered a new remix of the single "Headlines" that boasts a few bars by T.I., but it's unclear if this new version will replace the original on Take Care.
