Drake's new album Take Care is expected to be one of the blockbusters of the holiday shopping season, which explains why it was pretty much impossible for media outlets to secure promotional copies in advance of the record's release Nov. 15. And yet, in spite of the seemingly secure lockdown, Take Care leaked anyway over the weekend. But at least Drake is taking these developments in stride, tweeting almost immediately after the leak: "I am not sure if the album leaked. But if it did thank god it doesn't happen a month early anymore." Drake was referring to the early leak of his first record, Thank Me Later, which still managed to rank among 2010's best sellers. Maybe that's why Drake doesn't seem to be stressing too much about this latest leak, later tweeting: "Listen, enjoy it, buy it if you like it...and take care until next time." [via Prefix]
