Drake feat Rihanna “Take Care”

Here’s something you don’t get to hear everyday: Canadian rap wonder kid Drake featuring Rihanna on a track sampling Jamie XX’s remix of Gil Scott-Heron’s cover of I’ll Take Care of You. It’s a nice mixture of genres in a mid-tempo song based on simple piano chords intertwined with drums and the warmth of the vocalists jumping from singing to rapping, creating this very intimate and uniquely tender musical moment. The video was directed by Yoanne Lemoine (the famous French director, graphic designer and also musician, under the alias Woodkid) and its bold imagery and pulsating sense of movement makes it a true feast for the eyes.
