On Friday, Drake released a 25-track album called "Scorpion."
, Drake, a noted Scorpio, really opened up in the 89-minute album.
The record covers a lot of ground, and Drake leaves no stone left unturned. From his feuds to his not-so-secret child, here are four major things you may have missed on "Scorpion."
Drake seems to confirm that he's a dad.
In May, Drake was feuding with Pusha T. In a diss track entitled "The Story of Adidon," Pusha T accused Drake of "hiding a child." In several tracks on "Scorpion," Drake seems to confirm that he is a dad.
"Look at the way we live / I wasn't hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid," Drake raps on the "Scorpion" track "Emotionless," which seems to confirm the existence of his first child.
"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," Drake says, apparently addressing the criticism that he didn't respond to Pusha T.
The theme of paternity runs through the album.
In "8 out of 10," Drake denies accusations that he's a bad father. "The only deadbeats is whatever beats I been rappin' to / Never a matter of could I or should I / Kiss my son on his forehead and kiss your a-- goodbye / As luck would have it I'm settled into my role as the good guy."
"Daddy got suits like Bernie Mac, he dresses himself / I stopped askin' myself and I started feelin' myself," he says on "Survival."
And in case anyone didn't get the hint, he's pretty explicit on "Mob Ties," saying, "I'm not with the rah-rah, I am a da-da."
Drake also addressed his feud with Pusha T.
Speaking of that Pusha T diss track, Drake addressed it in several songs on the album.
Most notably, he attempted to write the whole thing off on "Peak," rapping, "What you thought of me never had me missing a beat / That's just a view from a cheap seat / They don't want problems with me / Talk used to be cheap, nowadays it's free / People are only as tough as they phones allow them to be."
"March 14" is the most revealing track.
On "March 14," Drake raps about coming to terms with being a father.
For context, TMZ initially broke the story in May 2019 that Drake had fathered a child named Adonis with former adult film actress Sophie Brussaux. At the time, a rep for Drake denied the claim but noted, "if it is, in fact, Drake's child, which he does not believe, he would do the right thing by the child."
The track starts out on a particularly candid note.
"Yesterday morning was crazy / 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 / Sandi [Drake's mother] used to tell me all it takes is one time / S---, 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 front lines just tryna make sure that I see him sometimes. It's breaking my spirit / A single father, I hate when I hear it."
For Drake, it seems that fatherhood has been bittersweet.
"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' / Tell Jello bring some, uh, Rosé and Baccarat out for our cheers to the next generation / But this champagne toast is short-lived / I got an empty crib in my empty crib / I only met you one time, introduced you to Saint Nick / I think he must've brought you like twenty gifts."
And then he seemed to confirm that Adonis was born on October 11.
"October baby for irony sake, of course / I got this 11 tatted for somebody, now it's yours / And believe me, I can't wait to get a hunnid more / Sorry I'm vintage, tryna cover ground / They said that in two weeks you're supposed to come in town / Hopefully by the time you hear this me and your mother will have come around instead of always cutting each other down."
It seems like he's hung up on Bella Hadid.
Bella Hadid and Drake reportedly dated in June 2019. But, apparently, he ghosted her later that year, an anonymous source told Us Weekly.
Now on "Scorpion," Drake appeared to leave little to the imagination.
"My house is full of supermodels just like Mohammed Hadid," Drake said on "Sandra's Rose." Mohammed Hadid is the father of Bella, Gigi, and their brother Anwar Hadid.
The references continue on "Finesse," which comes later in the album. "I want my baby to have your eyes / I'm going against my own advice / Should I do New York? I can't decide / Fashion week is more your thing than mine," he raps seemingly to Hadid, a noted fashion model.
Later on the track, he makes another pointed reference, despite the aforementioned alleged ghosting. "You stay on my mind / You and your sister too hot to handle," he said referring to Gigi, who is also a model.
