Drake's second album "Take Care," which includes songs with Stevie Wonder, Rihanna, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, and Rick Ross, is set to hit store shelves on November 15th. The sophomore project is being released under the Universal Republic Records label.

However, while Drake was on the Toronto radio station Flow 93.5 last Sunday, part of the new album was leaked – the tracks “Lord Knows" with Ross as well as his new tune "Take Care" with Rihanna somehow got out, and delighted music fans, who rushed to get a sneak peek (and listen) of the album. Drake apparently quickly tweeted in response, "I am not sure if the album leaked. But if it did thank god it doesn’t happen a month early anymore. Listen, enjoy it, buy it if you like it . . . and take care until next time" (as reported by Toronto.com).

Drake debuted "The Motto" (which features Lil Wayne) as well as T.I.'s version of "Headlines" on the Los Angeles radio station Power 106 at the beginning of the month – “Headlines” came out on iTunes this past August and his Nicki Minaj track “Make Me Proud” was also released.

Drake recently told XXL that a mixed tape with Rick Ross may be in the works, however he didn't divulge any projected release date. “I have been working on a mixtape with Ross,” he said to the outlet. “A mixtape called Y.O.L.O. [That means] ‘You Only Live Once’. I’ve been working on that for the last couple of weeks. We haven’t really connected because he’s been going through this thing with his health. I’ve been stashing my little beats and verses.”
