Drake Confirms Rumored Son on New Album 'Scorpion'

Rapper Drake has revealed he has a son on his new album Scorpion, following weeks of speculation after Pusha T's diss track.

He talks about his son on three songs from the album: "Emotionless", "8 Out Of 10", and "March 14". Here he reflects upon his own upbringing ― Drake was raised by a single mother named Sandi ― and refers to himself as a "single father". But there are other samples too, from Mariah Carey's "Emotions (Remix)" on the clever flip "Emotionless", to a Nicki Minaj live performance on "That's How You Feel".

Drake has finally come clean - admitting he's fathered a son - even rapping about the paternity test he took to know it was for certain. On "Emotionless", the rapper clears up his reason for keeping quiet. "You are hiding a child", Pusha famously rapped.

Drake then seemingly addresses his relationship with his son's mother by referencing Michael Jackson's hit "Billie Jean" in the song "March 14". He also used a real photo of Drake in blackface as the cover art. Drake had to clarify he took the photo as part of an art project highlighting the struggles of black actors.

Well, it turns out Drake wasn't exactly concealing his daddy duties for the reason we may think.

'I challenged my parents on every album, now I'm embarrassed to tell them I'm a co-parent.

The song comes out little more than a day after the death of Joe Jackson, the King of Pop's father and manager.

CANADA: Surprisingly few mentions of Drake's Toronto hometown turn up in the lyrics on Scorpion, if there are any, but he does slip in a quick reference to the whales at Niagara Falls amusement park Marineland. We understand she may have problems getting into the United States. With Drake's big reveal on Instagram, there were noticeably no high-profile artists spotted beside the tracks.
