    Drake just pulled a Beyoncé!

    Rapper
    Drake drops surprise album

    by Sara Anwar, CNN

    Updated 3:15 PM ET, Fri February 13, 2015

    Drake’s “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late”
    was preceded by a short film.

    (CNN) Rapper Drake pulled a Beyoncé, surprising fans late
    Thursday with a 17-track album.

    “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late” may have
    been tipped off earlier in the day when the artist debuted a short film titled
    “Jungle,” which ranges from historical footage to scenes of a young
    Drake singing and rapping. Soon after, he tweeted what appeared to be his album
    cover.

    Tracks include collaborations with artists Lil Wayne,
    Travi$ Scott, and PartyNextDoor. A handwritten note on Drake’s OVO site gives
    shout-outs to the Toronto Raptors, Madonna, and Ginuwine, among others. The
    rapper also took to Instagram to ask whether fans liked his mixtape.

    Billboard’s Keith Caulfield reports that the album could
    be the rapper’s fourth No. 1 on the publication’s 200 chart.

    “While it’s still a bit early to get a proper
    projection on what it might sell through the end of the tracking week on
    Sunday, Feb. 15, sources have floated figures as high as 400,000,”
    Caulfield writes. “That would be the largest sales week for a rap album
    since November of 2013, when Eminem’s ‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2’ bowed at No.
    1 with 792,000 sold (according to Nielsen Music) in its first week.”

    Releasing unexpected music seems to be all the rage since
    singer Beyoncé dropped a surprise album in 2013. The self-titled album was a
    huge hit, selling more than a million copies in less than three weeks.

    Thank god he confirmed this as a mixtape because I definitely wasn’t feeling it at first. I love Drake as an artist but he’s starting to make the same material. I want him to challenge himself more and work with producers outside of Noah. “Take Care” remains his best album because he experimented with different sounds and stepped outside of the box. He’s following a formula now that’s becoming predictable sonically.

    It isn’t his best or worst. It falls behind Take Care, If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, and Nothing Was the Same. I’d give it ***/****.
