New Music: Drake – Find Your Love

“I better find your loving…I better find your heart,” Drake tweeted early this morning (April 29), and just minutes later the second single from his highly-anticipated album, Thank Me Later, was unleashed to the internet where fans quickly rushed to get a listen.

“Find Your Love,” produced by hip-hop genius Kanye West, finds rap’s most valuable rookie slipping into R&B mode and getting his Trey Songz on as he sings about cautiously giving himself to a special lady and hoping she returns the favor.

The mechanical beats, thumping drums, and “hey hey hey” refrains will almost immediately call to mind West’s Grammy-snubbed masterpiece 808’s and Heartbreak, but don’t be so quick to write “Find Your Love” off as a copycat or reject. Drizzy offers up enough to make you forgive the similarities and enjoy “Find Your Love” for its own impressive merits.
