So this has been around for a couple of weeks, but an MP3 of the cover just surfaced so I figured now would be a good time to post.
Anyways, Florence. Girl kills me. First time I heard this it had a pretty powerful effect on me, and I was really taken aback by the power Florence has in her voice. Kind of just blows you away, ya know?
I gave Drake’s “Take Care” a controversially positive review, and while that’s up for debate, the fact that Florence + The Machine killed this cover is not.
Imagine a Florence/Drake collaboration! Damn.
I’ve embedded both Florence’s cover and Drake’s original–let me know which you like more in the comments! I’m curious. As great as this is, Drake’s still takes the cake for me; but, Florence’s is live and not superficially produced, so I gotta give my girl props for that.
Head over to Pigeons and Planes to see the video of Florence performing the cover live.
Gearing up for the release of his much anticipated sophomore album, Take Care, Drizzy let loose another single featuring Tunechi. Drake does his thang, crooning over some detuned keys, while Weezy adds some solid bars about experienced shorties. Take Care comes November 14th. Word up to Hypetrak.
The Toronto crooner leaked the first single off his upcoming sophomore album, Take Care, late last night via his website. It’s a smooth flurry of synths, strings and snares coupled with Drizzy’s classic back-and-forth rap/sing cadence. He recently told Rolling Stone, “I hate singles. With this album, I want to tell a whole story. I don’t want people to just hear a piece and judge the album on that.” I’ll be looking forward to more, Aubrey. @dcbui
