Drake’s Debut Pushed Back To June 15th

Looks like we’re going to have have to wait a little bit longer to thank Drake. His debut album, Thank Me Later has been pushed back from May 25th to June 15th. Hey, it’s only three weeks later. Get over it.

Sidebar: Aubrey will perform his new “Fireworks” song on tour.

    Psycho is a hater. Smh. “Shut It Down” will do damage over “Over”.

  • Fat boy

    Wow really drizzy smh

  • Drucifer

    They should have pushed it back to Nevuary 2nd………..lol, Just kidding, I dont have nothin against Drake but I could care less about him, his music if too Sissified for me, I grew up on Ice Cube, Scarface, 2pac, and then later Em and DMX and Shit like that, What Drake does is too soft for me, I like my rap hardcore

  • Big Homie

    What Drake does is too soft for me,

    Let The pushin back Begin..

  • r….i

    he’s “over” he couldn’t get his album together when he had his buzz and now it’s not anywhere near as big as it was. they play that over shit on the radio but its annoying as fuck they just try to shove it down your throats because they getting paid to.

  • http://myspace.com/pitri_27 PITRI

    hey May be Em Told him his big news b4 us..That R2’s droppin on my 25th..haha

    we already know the drill, this album will be pushed back a couple more times its all part of the marketing which is getting old really fast. I don’t even know why people pay attention to the 1st release date for an album.

  • Fat boy

    @pitiri yea I hope that was the big news with eminem lol he told drake to push his album back lol

  • http://organicprism.tumblr.com WhatsUpSon

    Sounds like prime summer positioning to me, that is, if the album doesn’t get pushed back again.

  • http://becoolent.com Jay Fingers

    “Over” is currently #22 on Billboard’s Hot 100. How is it a flop again?

  • That Dude

    nigga for what!!! sounds like somebody dont wanna get embarrassed by j.cole

  • Toya

    When Weezy went to Rikers, Drake said he would carry Young Money. Guess he is following in Weezy’s foot steps. This is push back #1. All that needs to do now is pushing back of the album 7 more times, and a music video with Eminem, some mixed negative album reviews, and he will do Weexy proud.

    Or maybe the thinking is that by pushing the drop to June, he can get more sells because more his fans will have summer jobs by then and can therefore afford his album.

    @WhatsUpSon

    I think that’s exactly what it is.

    I’ll be ready to listen whenever it drops. Let the fickle rap fans hate. You’ll listen to the album when it drops. #Fact.

    Dropping an album in the summer is smart. It’s all about marketing.

    And for those still crying about “soft” and “hard” music should pause yourself and sit in a corner. Just listen to music and move with the times. If you want to be a purist, and only listen to things pre-1995, do that, but quit whinin’ about the new artists.

  • http://deleted Drizz

    HOPE THIS FLOPS. THIS ALBUM WILL PROB BE BIG LIKE THE CARTER THREE. THE CARTER FUCKED UP OTHER RAP ALBUMS BECAUSE IT MADE SO MUCH NOISE. THE GAME AND ICE CUBE PUSHED BACK THEIR ALBUMS BECAUSE OF IT. NOT GOOD!!

  • mikedreamsmusic

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Definition of a hater. Wow.

  • http://organicprism.tumblr.com WhatsUpSon

    @mikedreamsmusic Yeah. I highly doubt it’ll get pushed back again. And yeah, some people wanna be stubborn as hell when 90-something percent of listeners/purchasers are nowhere close to hardcore in their personal lives. There’s nothing lame or weak about diversity that doesn’t disrespect the art.

  • Mr.AFromThaT

    MY MOFUCKIN BIRTHDAY!!!! YAY!!! but what fo the pushback? Get on it Drizzy, we gotta wrap this up eventualy………

  • Dayum

    hmmm Interscope pushed GRODT up due to its elephant buzz…next 50? Not a freaking chance you Canadian Jew!

  • Amen

    Juss means its not perfected yet, he wants to make sure its perfect, do ur thing Drizzy, we can’t wait :)

  • thebullfrog24

    Its funny how dudes on here talk about how “drake is to soft for them” or “i don’t care about drake” …yet your taking time out of your life to post about him. you really have nothing else to do?

  • Ac@pella!

    …And he just keeps pushin’ it back…Let’s see. New decade. POTENTIAL brand new albums that could make this year to never 4get:

    Dr. Dre, Detox
    Drake, Thank Me Later
    Eminem, Relapse 2
    Lupe Fiasco, Lasers
    Big Boi, Sir Lucious Left Foot…
    Jay Electronica, untitled

    Anymore? I can’t think of all of them, but it seems like none of these muthafuckaz are gonna drop. Tisk tisk…

  • Ac@pella!

    I forgot one, Game, The R.E.D Album :-)

    And, don’t get it twisted, I love Drake’s music. I’m jus sick of all the good shit getting hyped up so fuckin much and pushed back. I’ll def be copping this when it drops. I don’t have a problem spending $9.98 on a c.d. Fuck it, I’ll spend $12.98 on the deluxe edition if I have to. I don’t have a problem with that. But anyways, we jsut need sum good shit to drop before the industry starts flooding the game with all the bullshit albums. (See Soulja Boy “Dre” trailer above, or below, whatever. Lol.)

  • bgirl

    I hope he pushes it back to ‘never’

  • jamie

    so many haters.
    you must all love drake because you seem to spend all your time commenting on his posts.
    i hate all these people that compare the old hiphop to the new.
    get with the times. this is the new age. get with it. or just fuck off

  • DunkDonDaDa

    It’s not lookin good for this overated ym prick

  • crossover1985

    pushed back 3 weeks??? now im starting to have doubts. i bet this shit turns into tha carter 3 with all the delays

  • http://thablogishot.com Julie

    c’mon drizzy just release it! we’re rooting for you!

  • Slowbot

    Im sure his album will be dope..but i still think J. Cole is gonna have the better album..Just my opinion….” Over” isnt a great song but it aint bad either but the bad thing is if any of the other new artist dropped the exact same song dat shyt would barely crack billboard 100…Drake could put out a song saying nothing on it(Pooty Tang) and dick riding radio stations would still play it………..

  • yo

    “i bet this shit turns into tha carter 3 with all the delays” – crossover1985

    ^^

    That’s probably what YM is hoping for. I know what you meant, though.

    I thought everybody knew “OVER” was NOT the MAIN single that they want 2 carry the album to release, it was just a warm-up. I fux w/ Drake & I fux w/ CUBE & RAEKWON it doesn’t have to be one or the other for me so if you’re keepin REAL by sayin you don’t fuck w/ Drake because he’s soft then keep it REALER & stop hatin on his muthafuckin talent.

    P.S. FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER @bobbigprofecy & I’LL FOLLOW YOU BACK!!!!!

    “Over” flopped?

    Well…history shows, when music videos for the songs get released is when they really blow up on the charts. The songs only been on the charts for 3 weeks and it’s ALREADY #22 on the Hot 100.. That’s definitely NOT A FLOP.. It’ll get to atleast the top 10 once the video drops.

  • Yooo

    Why am I not surprised…

  • kira

    should of dropped the album last year while he his buzz was at peak, label kinda missed the boat on this one..

  • Can

    You haters are fucking absurd.

    his buzz hasn’t gone anywhere, Over didn’t flop- he didn’t even put out a video for it, nor has he even going on any talk shows to promote the album yet or anything. fall back, damn.

  • yaboitone aka FIRST KID ON THE WAY!!!!

    “Over flopped??”

    in what world? niggaz want to hate so bad on this nigga that they have to fabricate it. smh.

  • Amen

    Yea OVER went straight to Number15 on the Billboard Hot 100, lol thats better than alot of debuts, and that ain’t even the official single, Drake ain’t worried bout y’all haters, he bout to WIN and ima pay my 12-13 dollars to help him win

  • Shady

    I respect Drake as a person, and he getting his dough, but as a musician…definitely no respect from me. Overhyped shit.

  • teejay

    I think it’ll sell well. Doggystyle or GRODT numbers? No. But the industry is different now, 700,000 today = 1,000,000 ten years ago.

    As far as his music, he’s inconsistent to me. Some of it is sick and some is just too commercial I suppose. Over was pretty disappointing to me, dope beat but he failed on it, gettin killed by Diggy the next day. Not a huge fan, but I never hate unless it’s Gucci et. al, best of luck to the homie. Hope the record is sick.

  • ’97 Cheech & Chong

    honestly .. i could give a fuck about drakes thank me later.. im only pissed its pushed back cuz i wanna hear that eminem track he collaborated on .. fuck same with B.o.B .. i just wanna hear that Airplanes pt 2 with hayley & em.. i bet 1 million other people want the same thing. crazy how hip hop is concentrating on em & relapse 2 so much that people would rather hear R2 than detox.
