“Make Me Proud” F. Nicki Minaj

    So far, the music we have heard from Drake’s sophomore album, Take Care, has been in the same lane. From “Dreams Money Can Buy” to “Marvin’s Room” to “Headlines,” the tracks have been strong, albeit non-explosive, affairs. That changes here with the Nicki Minaj “Make Me Proud,” a club-ready and radio-friendly joint that’s sure to blow up once it’s properly released as a single.

    I mean, Drizzy and Nicki would really have to drop a dud for it not to kill it on the charts. And while “Make Me Proud” isn’t on the same level as previous Take Care singles, it’s undeniably catchy. The track was apparently premiered by Funkmaster Flex last night, so it’s only a matter of time before radio stations across the country place it in their rotation. I think it’s safe to say you should get used to hearing this one at least three or four times a day, y’all. Stream “Make Me Proud” below. Take Care drops Nov. 15.
