Drake Releases His Double Album, 'Scorpion'

  • Last Song on Drake's New Album May Be About Playing Fortnite With Ninja

The last time Drake released an album, 2017's More Life, it ended with him declaring that he was "taking summer off" and would be "back in 2018 to give you the summary". And those fans who enjoyed the revelations in Pusha T's "The Story of Adidon" are likely listening to "Scorpion", the highly anticipated, 25-track album by pop music's No. 1 player released Friday.

The popularity is likely helped by widespread promotion of the project. Well, Drake has responded - and, yes, he's a dad.

The move will likely help Drake regain his crown as Spotify's most-streamed artist after being unseated by Colombian reggaeton singer J Balvin, known for his hit "Mi Gente", earlier this week.

Later in the song, Drake references the fractured relationship between his parents.

Drake, in a rare interview past year, described Jackson as a longtime model and voiced dismay at being pigeon-holed as a rapper. The child's mother is reportedly artist and former adult film star Sophie Brussaux, but her identity as the child's mother was not addressed on the album. Drake's reply? It appears roughly 10 minutes into "Scorpion" and kind of out of nowhere: "I wasn't hiding my kid from the world", he explains over a Mobius-stripped Mariah Carey sample.

Music, which rolled out five albums over the first few months of June with Kanye West at the helm of production.

And then, of course, there are the previously released singles "God's Plan" and "I'm Upset", both of which are clear standouts on the first half and continue to dominate urban radio due to their boisterous lyrics and upbeat melodies. In May, rapper Pusha-T put out a track that accused Drake of hiding the fact that he had a son.

Drake's successes are definitely hard to match, but on this album he shouts out someone he deems to be a peer: Adele.

Drake has reportedly also broken the global record for most opening day singles streams for "Nonstop" with approximately 9.2 million streams, besting Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do".

"Soon as this album drops, I'm outta the deal".

"Scrollin' through life and fishin' for praise/Opinions from total strangers take me out of my ways/I'm tryna see who's there on the other end of the shade/Most times it's just somebody that's underage/That's probably just alone and afraid/And lashin' out so that someone else can feel they pain", Drake raps.

Scorpion, the fifth studio album by the triple Grammy Award victor, also sees him resurrect the voice of the original King of Pop Micheal Jackson.
