The 'Miss Me' rapper says his new album is an opportunity to prove himself as a top player in the music industry.

Drake has admitted he feels pressure for his second studio album 'Take Care' to do well.

The Canadian rapper released his sophomore effort last week and says he still feels he has to prove himself as a credible artist.

"I always feel that with each project, a new group of people are dying to see what my next move is," Drake told USA Today. "With that comes pressure, but it also creates excitement and makes me want to work harder.

"I still feel that I am new and I have something to prove with this album."

Earlier this month two tracks from 'Take Care' were leaked online although Drake simply tweeted his fans to "enjoy" the early preview.

'Take Care' is available to purchase in-store and download now.
