Minutes after the album leaked, Drake took to Twitter to react, "I am not sure if the album leaked. But if it did thank god it doesn't happen a month early anymore."
"Listen, enjoy it, buy it if you like it...and take care until next time." Drake continued.
Drake’s sophomore album was originally set to release on his birthday, Oct. 24, but was pushed to Nov. 15.

"I have completed 19 songs (17 on physical and 2 on bonus), and have run into a roadblock of clearing 3 samples in time to make the October 24th date," Drake wrote on his website when the date change was announced. "My options were to take the songs off and make the birthday release happen, or to take an extra couple weeks to get the paper work right and give you the album they way I NEED you to hear it. The choice was clear as day for me."
