DOWNLOAD: Drake - Club Paradise
Drake has promised to lay off the R&B on his sophomore album Take Care, but in the meantime the Young Money rapper continues to release soul-baring slow jams that chronicle the emotional ups-and-downs of his fame. "Club Paradise” is one of the latest in a series that included “Marvin’s Room” and “Trust Issues” early in the summer. The melancholy track, with its minimalist beat from producer Noah “40” Shebib, finds the Toronto native disillusioned with the distance between himself and his hometown. We also learn that other side effects of rap star fame include knowing strippers by name and having too many girls for mom to keep up with. Hey, it's rough out there.
