Drake Confirms Rumored Son on New Album 'Scorpion'

Drake Confirms Rumored Son on New Album 'Scorpion'

Just hours before the album became available to stream and download, Drake had dropped a last minute bombshell by suggesting one of the tracks is, in fact, a previously unreleased song by Michael Jackson.

Cape Town - Canadian rapper Drake released a new double album on Friday, titled Scorpion.

That's a direct response to incendiary claims made by Pusha-T, who used his brutal diss track The Story Of Adidon to state "You are hiding a child, let that boy come home".

"All of a sudden you say you don't want me no more / All of a sudden you say that I closed the door / It don't matter to me", Jackson sings.

Drake announced in April that he planned to release his fifth studio album in June. " Drake says he hopes to make amends with the woman he met twice, in 2017, ("She not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine"), prompting a reported October birth of a baby boy". With a weighty rollout including endearing videos for "God's Plan" and "Nice For What" and the less-favoured single "I'm Upset", Drake aims to come out stronger, more focused and more righteous than ever.

'Ant-Man and the Wasp' is a Lighthearted Breather for the MCU
Hank Pym and Hope van Dyne's relentless faith to save Janet van Dyne drives 100 percent of this film. It will be followed by Captain Marvel in early 2019. "I think she's talked about it".

Even if it doesn't, "Scorpion" seems guaranteed to break the Spotify records set just weeks ago by Post Malone's "Beerbongs & Bentleys", which was streamed 47,930,039 times in the USA and 78,744,748 times globally on its first day of release - and 236,500,546 times in the US and 411,816,710 globally in its first week.

But while "Scorpion" is full of feel-good vibes - "Ratchet Happy Birthday" seems destined to be played at many a boisterous party - Drake closes on a serious note as he acknowledges he is a father.

Also featured are Ty Dolla $ign and Static Major. Pusha T killed Drake so Drake used that moment to go do a collabo with Michael Jackson.

Drake also makes it clear that things between him and the mother aren't great, saying, "Hopefully by the time you hear this me and your mother will have come around instead of always cutting each other down". We're hoping to get more details soon.
