Drake, Thank Me Later
â€œHow I did end up here with you?â€ asks Drake on â€œShow Me a Good Time.â€ Thank Me Later answers the question, weaving between a melodic croon delivered over muted balladry and lyrical allusions to nascent superstardom. â€œI avoided the Coke game and went with Sprite instead,â€ he raps on â€œThe Resistance,â€ acknowledging his marketability and clean-cut image. Predictably, famous well wishers like Jay-Z and Alicia Keys appear. But this is Drakeâ€™s hour, and his introspective musings, deployed on standouts â€œFireworks,â€ makes this an engaging and occasionally spectacular debut.
