About his leading lady featured on Take Care‘s title track, Drake says: “I came straight from Toronto, just a kid that was trying to get out of my mom’s house, and the first person I meet is a girl that’s the biggest person you could possibly meet at my age. So I meet her and it was just mind-blowing. I couldn’t believe she’d even want to talk to me. I read some interview where they painted me as so sad and heartbroken, but we’re cool. I was never torn apart by that situation.”
Then, regarding his “Made Me Proud” songbird: “If there’s any woman in my life that’s the ideal woman for me, it’s definitely Nicki. I like the stripped-down Nicki. I like Nicki with no makeup, black hair, some casual clothes in a recording booth rapping an amazing verse. That’s sexy to me. I know some great women, but all jokes aside, Nicki is somebody I could spend my life with because I think we understand each other.”
