Drake is shelving his planned R&B mixtape to focus all of his energy on another project.
The Young Money rapper announced yesterday on his blog that It’s Never Enough has been placed on the back burner while he works on his next rap album.
"I have decided that I am going to push It’s Never Enough and focus completely on delivering Take Care to you all," Drake wrote. "I feel like my mind is truly ready to make this next album NOW and I don’t want that feeling to escape me."
This might be disappointing to some fans who enjoyed Drake’s "I Get Lonely Too," a reworking of a song from TLC’s Fanmail. It was supposed to appear on It’s Never Enough and served as an example of where the project was heading.
Drake had told MTV back in October that production for It’s Never Enough had been put on pause because he was more focused on rapping than singing.
"I been rapping a lot lately," Drake told MTV. "Me and 40 [Noah Shebib, his producer] have been doing some great rap music, so I sort of took a hiatus on the R&B for a second. It’s cool to do R&B. I love it, but it’s just hard for me to always commit to it."
