'Scorpion': Drake Raps About His Son

'Scorpion': Drake Raps About His Son

Almost a decade after his death, Michael Jackson is out with new music in a guest appearance on the keenly awaited new album by Drake. In an unexpected move, given Drake's long history with Apple Music, they've also gone big with Spotify, teaming up with the service for its first-ever global dedicated artist takeover, called "ScorpionSZN", whereby Drake takes over multiple playlists on the same day.

The popularity is likely helped by widespread promotion of the project.

On April 16th, Drake announced a new album via his IG page. The 31-year-old is clearly battling some hard feelings, especially given the fact that the Toronto native is the son of divorced parents and, as per the song, didn't want the same for his own child.

The album also features collaborations with Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Ty Dolla Sign, and posthumous vocals by Michael Jackson.

Pusha-T told the world that Drake was "hiding a child", but on the Mariah Carey-sampled track, "Emotionless", he finally responds to those damning accusations in Pusha's diss track.

The revelation comes after a few months of public speculation.

"Yesterday morning was insane / I had to come to terms with the fact that it's not a maybe / That shit is in stone, sealed and signed / She's not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine", he raps.

The rumors about Drake's child began earlier this year when his former rival Pusha T released a song called "The Story of Adidon", where he said the Drake had a secret child.

Seven-track albums? Drake isn't trying to hear all that. "We understand she may have problems getting into the United States". On the song "Emotionless" he says, "I wasn't hiding my child from the world". "Sandra's Rose", named after Drake's mother, finds him bragging, "Every title doin' numbers like I'm Miss Adele".

In all, Side A is far superior to Side B. Drake excels when he's spitting show-offy raps, but he fails to find a pop hit like "Hotline Bling" or "One Dance" this time around.

Later, on "8 Out Of 10", he claims, via awful pun, that he's not a deadbeat dad: "The only deadbeats is whatever beats I been rapping to".
