Dreams Money Can Buy was the impressive first leak from Drake’s forthcoming album Take Care. Now the second taste is here and it’s one of his sing-songy slow numbers produced by 40, with a decent verse at the end. It’s possibly called Marvins Room because Drake recorded it in Marvin Gaye’s old studio, making it the second Marvin Gaye referenced song this week.

Enter 21 year old JoJo, the star of RV! She just got out of her contract at label Blackground Records by suing them, and is now with Interscope and will have her next album Jumping Trains out soon, her first in over five years. So obviously it will be a new direction sonically for her, and there’s no better example than her cover of “Marvin’s Room” she released today on Youtube. It already has three times more views than Drake’s video released last week. Download her take below and spoiler alert: she says fuck a lot, but sadly doesn’t say “you niggas crazy”.

Below you can download and listen to Houstatlantavegas, yet another Drake cover that JoJo did in 2009. Jeez, obsessed much JJ? There are other great artists in this world you can copy. She doesn’t say the classic Drake line “Ass low, ass low, I always request you” and that’s a shame.
