Drake Confirms He Has a Son on His New Album Scorpion

Drake Confirms He Has a Son on His New Album Scorpion

According to, Scorpion was streamed 132 million times worldwide on its first day.

June 29, 2018 Folks highly anticipate new music from Drake. The two aren't on the best of terms, and Drake makes references to Fashion Week and not being able to be around her in public. And on opening track, "Survival", he says, "I'm pretty sure we got a label, I'm still independent". On that song, Drake raps, with more regret that excitement, about learning that he really is the kid's father.

"I wasn't hiding my kid from the world / I was hiding the world from my kid / Breakin' news in my life I don't run to the blogs / The only ones I wanna tell are the ones I can call".

"God's Plan" and "Nice For What" are both included, one on each part of the double album, so if all you want to do is bump the hits, you're covered.

Drake also makes a brief reference to his kid on "8 Out Of Ten": "It's not a matter of could I or should I / Kiss my son on the forehead then kiss your ass goodbye". Sandi used to tell me all it takes is one time. We can only hope that, over time, he will learn how to say actually loving things to his child ... ones that aren't a reminder that their existence was unplanned and completely caught their father by surprise.

With this new information, fans went insane. Rather than an ode to his mother's tireless labors, Drake recounts how lucky she is to have him: "Sandra knows I pulled us out of a living hell/I'm the chosen one, flowers never pick themselves".

With the country's most one-sided World Cup victory, England advanced to the last 16 with a game by spare. However much they tried, Panama struggled to block England's route to goal.

"He can still put this (album) out and get so much love in the midst of all of this other drama that's happening", said Cori Murray, entertainer director at Essence magazine.

Pusha T later said in an interview with Vanity Fair that he and Drake had squashed their beef.

On "Is There More", the singer-rapper also hints he may be flirting with the idea of being an independent artist. "I feel like if he didn't finish it, you shouldn't use it".

Drake is "relatable" in a culture that seems to value that a great deal.

Drake has faced a lot of criticism throughout his career, with people saying he isn't a real rapper, calling him out for not writing his own songs, and saying that he took an L. He doesn't reach a conclusion on the song, which assures Drake still has plenty of conflicts to explore on his next album. Scorpion isn't self-destruction, but it does arrive at a time when Drake isn't quite in control of his narrative.
