Drake's Scorpion Album is finally available on Digital Platforms.
Drake has officially released his new album Scorpion. The double album includes featurings with artists such as JAY-Z, Michael Jackson, Nicki Minaj, Future, Ty Dolla $ ign and Static Major. Twenty five titles are featured in the album, including the singles "God's Plan", "Nice for What" and "I'm Upset".
The featuring with Michael Jackson on "Do not Matter to Me", totally unpredictable seems to be an unfinished music of Michael that Drake decided to add to his collection. Paul Anka is listed as co-writer on the track; Anka and Jackson collaborated in the early 1980s.
On a sample of Mariah Carey's "Emotionless", Drake responds to Pusha-T's "Story of Adidon" accusations that Drake spawned and hid a child. “I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid,” he said. He continues: “Breaking news in my life I don’t run to the blogs/the only ones I want to tell are in my phone I can call/They always ask, ‘Why let it run if it’s false’/You know a wise man once said nothing at all.” Then, He gives more details on the fact that he is father on the last song of the album, "March 14":
''That shit is in stone, sealed and signed
She not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine
Sandy used to tell me all it takes is one time, and all it took was one time
Shit, we only met two times, two times!
And both times were nothing like the new times
Now it’s rough times
I’m out here on frontlines, 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 ’em I ended up as a co-parent
Always promised the family unit
I wanted it to be different because I been through it, but this is the harsh truth now.''
In addition, several other artists appear on the album.
Indeed, in the track "Talk Up", JAY-Z takes advantage of his performance to refer to the recent premature death of the young rapper XXXTentacion. "Y'all killed X and let Zimmerman live," Jay says. On "That's How You Feel", Drake samples Nicki Minaj's song "Boss Ass Bitch" and also shows Future on "Blue Tint". In addition, Drake was not only happy with Noah 40 for his prods. Among the 25 tracks are DJ Premier, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Tay Keith, Boi-1da and Murda Beatz.
