If you haven’t had time to sit back and listen to Drake’s new album Scorpion in its entirety, then you are well and truly missing out.
From proof that he and Jay-Z’s long-term beef has been obliterated, to hints of a romance with Bella Hadid, and confirmation that he has a son. This two-track album delivers more than you would have ever guessed.
But, let’s rewind things a little bit – Drake has a son?!
Yep, it’s true.
In the song “March 14,” Drake raps, “She not my lover like Billie Jean but the kid is mine/ Sandi used to tell me all it takes is one time, and all it took was one time/ Sh*t, we only met two times, two times.” He goes on to sing, “I’m out here on front lines just trying to make sure that I see him sometimes/ It’s breaking my spirit/ Single father, I hate when I hear it/ I used to challenge my parents on every album/ Now I’m embarrassed to tell them I ended up as a co-parent/ Always promised the family unit/ I wanted it to be different because I’ve been through it.”
Later in the song, Drake confirms his son was born on October 11 and that he celebrated in Miami when the DNA test confirmed he was the boy’s father. “Realise I got to think for two now, I gotta make it, I better make it/ I promise if I’m not dead then I’m dedicated/ This the first positive DNA we ever celebrated/ I can’t forget the looks on they faces/ Got the news in Miami that we all now got ones that we raisin’.”
But, it doesn’t stop there!
The track “Emotionless” sees Drizzy coming forward to make a confession, stating: “I wasn’t hidin’ my kid from the world/ I was hidin’ the world from my kid/ From empty souls who just wake up and looked to debate/ Until you starin’ at your seed, you can never relate.”
This comes after Pusha T’s diss track, “The Story of Adidon,” where he claimed that Drake had a child with former adult-film star, Sophie Brussaux, which has proved to be true.
The highly anticipated album features Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Future and Ty Dolla $ign, and also includes a previously unreleased vocal track by Michael Jackson, which leads the hook to the song “Don’t Matter to Me.”
