Hear New Sound: Drake's "Take Care" (feat. Rihanna)

Hip-hop's most anticipated album appears to have sprung a leak and brought to our stereos one of the year's smoothest collaborations in the form of Drake and Rihanna. It's the title track off the Toronto hip-hopper's sophomore effort, Take Care due out November 15th and features production from the always-in-demand Jamie xx of The xx. Despite the fact this track borrows heavily from Jamie xx's recent collaboration remix with Gil Scott-Heron, We're New Here, Drake and Rihanna's dueling vocals sizzle over with comfortable sexual tension while keeping the late hip-hop luminaries' poetic integrity in tact. Prematurely stated, Drake and Rihanna's 2011 pairing might just rank right up there with last year's "What's My Name?" It's on the record that the pop princess once broke the heart of hip-hop's crowned prince, but here, it's evident these two kids know how to "Take Care" of each others music pretty nicely..
