For Scorpion, Drake’s long-awaited fifth studio album, the OVO Sound black-belt hip-hop talent laid bare the closeted pieces of his soul, his selfhood and his secrets in 25 tracks—including the most anticipated secret of them all: his now-revealed son.
The paternal confidential information first became collateral damage in Drizzy’s one-on-one rap warfare with G.O.O.D Music emcee Pusha T, who exposed Drizzy’s fatherhood in “The Story of Adidion” diss track against him. But Drake fans know better than to underestimate his knack for turning lemons into lemonade, which he accomplished in three records on the new project where he intimately addressed details of not only his son, but his relationship with the mother of his child as well. As rap’s R&B-hip-hop mastermind of emotions, it goes without saying that he did so with only the most sentimental of lyrics while sharing his innermost fears and feelings of new fatherhood.
Now, fans are streaming tracks, tears and tea from Drake’s two-disc revelatory testament of 2018, Scorpion.
See their reactions to Drizzy’s father-son revelation and the standout lyrics of his parental acceptance in "Emotionless," "8 Out Of 10" and "March 14" below.
