- On his new album “Scorpion,” Drake confirms rumours that he has a son – a subject which entered the public consciousness with the release of Pusha-T’s diss track against Drake, “The Story of Adidon,” last month.
- “Scorpion,” a 25-track, double album, is now available on all major streaming services.
Drake released his fifth studio album, “Scorpion,” on Friday. Among other noteworthy elements, the double-sided album finds Drake confirming the rumours of the past month that he has a son.
In his headline-grabbing diss track “The Story of Adidon,” released in May, rapper Pusha-T accused Drake of both hiding a son and allegedly planning to reveal his son to the world alongside an upcoming line of Adidas clothing that Drake was set to release.
“Look at the way we live / I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid,” Drake raps on the “Scorpion” track “Emotionless,” confirming the existence of his first child.
Drake raps at length about his son on several of the album’s tracks, including the closing song “March 14,” which finds Drake discussing how he had only ever met his son’s mother “two times”:
“Yesterday morning was crazy / I had to come to terms with the fact that it’s not a maybe / That s— is in stone, sealed and signed / She’s not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine / Sandi used to tell me all it takes is one time / S—, we only met two times. Two times / And both times were nothing like the new times / Now it’s rough times/ I’m out here on front lines just tryna make sure that I see him sometimes.”
“Scorpion,” the longest album of Drake’s career, clocks in around 89 minutes over the course of 25 tracks. The LP features guest appearances from Jay-Z and posthumous vocals from Michael Jackson and the late singer-producer Static Major.
The album is now available on all major streaming services, including Spotify, Apple Music, and Tidal.
