Drake speaks on "Take Care"


After Watch The Throne and Carter IV, the 3rd most anticipated album of the year is Drake's sophomore album Take Care. A lot of people were sorta somewhat disappointed with his debut album, saying he didnt come as hard as he does on mixtapes and features. So many are curious as to how this album goes. His debut album Thank Me Later did sell half a mil the first week though. Drake has been teasing fans by releasing tracks all summer including "Trust Issues", "Dreams Money Can Buy", "Headlines", and "Marvin's Room" but will they make the album? Who will he feature? Check out part of his interview with Entertainment Weekly after the jump for some answers.



• On the deluxe edition of Take Care: “So what I’m doing is there will be a Take Care physical edition in stores that’ll hopefully have 15 to 17 songs on it. Then I know a lot of people do deluxe editions. But since October 24 [hisbirthday] is a special day for me, I got, like, a Take Carebirthday edition that I’m going to put on iTunes that will have extra songs. I really want to encourage people to be excited about the album releasing.”
• On why he’s taking his time with this album: “I remember when artists used to take, like, four years to make an album. Usher used to disappear for three years. It took Justin Timberlake a really long time to craft Justified. Even Beyoncé’s albums are spanned three years apart. You’ve got to live, man. And now we’ve sort of birthed and encouraged this generation of instant gratification.”
• On how Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne inspired him: “With Jay and with Watch the Throne, I’m so glad that it came out. As artists, we all need extra motivation. And I feel like in these last 30 days, that album is going to make me go 10 times harder from just, you know, hearing all the bars and all the sounds.”
• On a potential joint project with Rick Ross: “One of the people of the people I enjoy rapping with most in this business is Rozay [Rick Ross]. Me and him have talked about potentially doing something after our albums comes out. I just love making songs with him. Every time we make a song it just seems to be something I love listening to after the fact when I’m in my car.”
• On his Stevie Wonder collaboration: “I had a song that’s very powerful, it’s called ‘Doing It Wrong,’ and Stevie boosted it to another level. 40 produced it, but Stevie has a solo on it that he plays. It’s a great piece of music.”
• On why Take Care will have less features compared to his debut: “It was my first album. It was a bit rushed. And I think I found solitude in having features from people I love. It was a heavy feature album. And this album is the complete opposite.”
• On which leaked tracks will make the final cut: “Headlines” and “Marvin’s Room” are on the album. But “Dreams Money Can Buy” and “Trust Issues,” those joints are on that birthdayedition. That birthday edition might be a stupid amount of songs. I’m just forewarning everybody. [Laughs] I want to service people a lot of music to get you through fall, winter, spring, and into the next summer. I want this music to last.”

The end of the Breakfast Club is near

The Breakfast Club has been on air for 9 years this month, and is going strong with ratings, engagement, and seems to be adding new markets every month...but I think the end is near. I sound crazy right? I know you're thinking, Tammy how and why would you think that a successful morning show would have it's future in the balance? Well, there are a couple of reasons, let's go through them. I mean this could all be in my head and I’m projecting, or I could have some legitimate points and the near future will tell. Shock jock radio value going down - The Breakfast Club has been known for it's shock jock style of radio for years. Charlemagne says the most outlandish things in interviews, creates false narratives that he doesn't even agree with for hot takes, and Envy always goes against the grain and disagrees with the masses on any given topic, just to disagree. Podcasting is huge right now, put five people in a room and at least three of them have a podca

15 Black women that need to host SNL

Saturday Night Live has been around for 45 years this fall and has had a series of hosts, of all ethnicities, ages, and entertainment occupations. They've had hosts that are comedians, actors, singers, rappers, and more. Now, while the diversity has been decent...I would love to see more black women as hosts. I've compiled a list of black women I think would do a damn good job at hosting the late night show. Let's get started shall we... Tracee Ellis Ross  - Tracee is a no brainer and should be at the top of everyone's list when thinking of who should host when they are doing the planning over at NBC. Tracee has perfect comedic timing, which we've seen time and time again on Girlfriends, and now on Black-ish we’ve seen her transform into Rainbow Johnson, and also into the other smaller roles they play when they have episodes within their episodes, if that makes sense. Her personality is playful and fun, which is evident through her Instagram. So, she’s

I’m back!!

After 7 long years I’m back to blogging, thankfully I was able to recover my all of my posts from when I was tammytalks.com; which I’m shocked I was able to even do. So here we are at at phase II of TammyTalks, I'll be taking a different approach this time, less objective entertainment news and gossip and more of my thoughts and opinions on various topics. I want to change the narrative of my blog and move away from so much entertainment news. I’m not interested in being PC this time around, while I’m not looking to be harsh I do want to give my raw, uncut opinion. So what have I been doing the past 7 years that TammyTalks wasn’t around? Well, writing...I’m always writing something, I’m always being creative in some way. I have several ideas for books, and have been working on outlines and tightening up synopses and storylines. So I’m excited about that, an anxious about how that will pan out for 2020. I have two podcasts as well; one with one of my best friends, Real Tv
