Drake spoke with the LA Times and reflected on his first album saying it “Wasn’t necessarily happy with Thank Me Later and the pressure he feels living up the hype.

“To be 100% honest … I wasn’t necessarily happy with Thank Me Later. People loved it [but] I just knew what I was capable of with a little more time,” he said. “I’m very confident in Take Care. I definitely made the exact album that I wanted. Will it appear that way to the world? I’m not sure, because its definitely different. It’s not 15 ‘I’m On Ones.’  It’s not ‘She Will.’ I’m very happy with [Take Care]. More so than I’ve ever been with a project.”

He also fills us in on how Take Care will show his growth and that he wanted to record the album at one continuous track.

“To be 100% honest … I wasn’t necessarily happy with Thank Me Later. People loved it [but] I just knew what I was capable of with a little more time,” he said. “I’m very confident in Take Care.

It’s not 15 ‘I’m On Ones.’  It’s not ‘She Will.’I’m very happy with [Take Care]. More so than I’ve ever been with a project.”

Drake also feels a weight on his shoulders to live up to the the hype he has created.

“I do put an immense amount of pressure on myself, I don’t sleep much. I think about everything and everyone in my life and trying to make everyone happy. My best friend tells me that I care too much, that I want everyone to like me,” he said with his head lowered. “Not everyone’s gonna like you, but I just want to be remembered as a man that somebody wants to be.”
