Drake apologizes for bump

DRAKE’S BIRTHDAY FEINT: Drake issued an apology on his website after being forced to bump his highly anticipated sophomore effort Take Care (Young Money/Cash Money/Universal Republic) from his birthday, Oct. 24, to Nov. 15. "I have completed 19 songs (17 on physical and 2 on bonus), and have run into a roadblock of clearing 3 samples in time to make the October 24th date," he wrote. "My options were to take the songs off and make the birthday release happen, or to take an extra couple weeks to get the paperwork right and give you the album the way I NEED you to hear it. The choice was clear as day for me. November 15th you will get Take Care the exact way I created it with no trimmings. This music means too much to me to get attached to dates and I do apologize for the delay but I promise that it is only for the benefit of our experience together." The irony is that the week’s entire slate of releases was moved up from Tuesday (10/25) to Monday after Drake decided to put out Take Care on his birthday. (10/11a)
