"Give You All My Lovin' Baby Can I?"

Now that Drake has fulfilled his album quota with Cash Money through his recent release of his If You're Reading This It's Too Late mixtape, it's time to get back to the real music. Make no mistake about it, his latest mixtape shouldn't be mentioned in the same sentence as his classic So Far Gone mixtape. The mixtape comparison serves as a reflection on the evolution of my fandom of Drake. It started off so well and continued for a few albums, but our paths have seemed to diverge the past year or so.

Unfortunately, his new track with Beyonce and Sal Houdini isn't the song that is going to make our paths converge again. I will say that Sal Houdini is a name I'm going to be keeping an eye out for going forward. He has a great voice and showed off some versatility on his verse. If you're looking for a huge vocal contribution from Beyonce, you're going to be disappointed too. I will say too I'm not really a fan of Drake's overtly-thuggish, half-yelling delivery. It's not what got him to where he is today and in my eyes it cheapens his overall style. All in all, it'll be a track that gets a lot of attention, but it's flashy exterior will leave you wanting more...#CanI
