If you’re running low on fall jams, today’s your lucky day. Drake and Justin Timberlake‘s new albums hit iTunes this morning, and both are guaranteed to make you wanna roll around in the leaves with someone special. Now it’s time to choose who that someone is — JT or Drizzy?
+ JT Grew Up
J.T.’s The 20/20 Experience — 2 of 2 is currently streaming in full on iTunes — a week before it’s official release date. Although Justin seems (and, let’s be honest, probably is) unstoppable, it took him many years to become as confident as he is today. In a recent interview with T, The New York Times Style Magazine, the singer explained how he conquered his fear of letdowns. “You get to this point, which I’ve done in the last five or six years where you become less worried about success and failure,” he said. ”Life doesn’t happen in black and white … the gray area is where you become an adult.”
+ Drake Got Schooled
You may be surprised to learn that, in spite of his genius lyrics, Drake was once a high school dropout. The skilled rapper (and singer) chose entertainment over education many years ago, but recently made the decision to go back and Get Schooled. “97% on my final exam. 88% in the course,” he Tweeted after obtaining his G.E.D. “One of the greatest feelings in my entire life. As of tonight I have graduated high school!” Drake’s fresh album, Nothing Was The Same, is the first he’s released as a high school graduate.
