Month After Diss Track, Drake Emerges Unfazed With New Album

Month After Diss Track, Drake Emerges Unfazed With New Album

"I'm at the stage in my life that I don't want to waste my time [but Drake is] a good human being", Anka said working with the 31-year-old performer.

Seven-track albums? Drake isn't trying to hear all that.

Rival rapper Pusha T leaked the news on his song The Story Of Adinon, rapping the lyrics: 'You are hiding a child, let that boy come home, deadbeat motherfucker.

Drake revealed nothing about the song's genesis.

Drake has reportedly also broken the global record for most opening day singles streams for "Nonstop" with approximately 9.2 million streams, besting Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do".

Trump dubs Heitkamp a 'liberal Democrat,' urges her defeat
Trump, with his arms spread wide for what appeared a hugging embrace, quickly readjusted his arms right before embracing Cramer. The rally marks the third time in the last week Trump has campaigned for Republican candidates.

The album's other major selling point is that he's also suddenly a dad - big news broken by rival rapper and scrupulous opposition researcher Pusha T last month. He then notes that he has only met his son, Adonis, once so far, when he brought him "like 20 gifts" at Christmas time. "Breakin' news in my life, I don't run to the blogs/The only ones I wanna tell are the ones I can call".

The song "Emotionless", which brilliantly samples Mariah Carey's hit "Emotions", is perhaps the most direct defense of why he kept his child a secret for so long.

Drake has been supporting the mother of his child, Sophie Brussaux, after his son was born a year ago.

The album also features collaborations with Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Ty Dolla Sign, and posthumous vocals by Michael Jackson. All throughout Scorpion, Drake talks about his son, and is open and honest about his struggles with accepting fatherhood (or being a "single father, I hate when I hear it", as he says on album closer "March 14") and his strained relationship with the child's mother, who he doesn't name.

Scorpion is a joint release on Warner Bros. and Universal Music-owned labels OVO Sound, Young Money Entertainment, Cash Money Records and Republic Records. We'll get to the Scorpion album credits in a minute. "I legitimately think he's pop music in the way that Michael Jackson and Madonna were pop music, in the sense that they take all these influences and all these genres and use themselves as a filter through which they're distilled into something brand new", Scott said.
