Drake released Scorpion, his new 25-track album, onto streaming music services and he has delivered some confessions like you’ve never heard before, so it is no surprise that it is making a lot of waves. While it’s a digital-only release at this point, Scorpion is being presented as a double-album that’s divided into two parts, one half rap songs, and the other R&B tracks. Here are seven things we learned listening to the 31-year-old artist’s fifth studio album, Scorpion.
Drake has a child
Why Drake hasn’t responded to Pusha T’s diss track
Drake never retaliated against Pusha T again because his mentor, J. Prince, allegedly said that Drake’s response, which had apparently already been recorded, would’ve been too “overwhelming” and damaging to Kanye West’s family and Pusha T’s career.
Jay-Z and Drake are no longer beefing
Jay-Z is featured on Talk Up, meaning the two have made up since their last fallout. Drake had famously left Jay-Z and Kanye West’s verse off his album, Views. The pair have put the drama behind them and reunited on Talk Up, where Jay-Z makes it clear that his verse was recently recorded, with his reference to XXXTentacions’s murder.
Drake still has hard feelings towards Kanye West
Kanye West produced Pusha T’s most recent album which featured a track directed towards Drake. Drake responded to this with his Duppy Freestyle, in which he disses West.
Drake addresses his record deal with Cash Money suggesting he might be an independent artist now
The status of Drake’s label situation has been a topic of conversation for years. In 2016, Ebro Darden tweeted that Drake’s Cash Money deal would be over after More Life dropped — which didn’t happen. In 2015, Birdman told Angie Martinez that Drake and Nicki Minaj wouldn’t be going anywhere, even if Lil Wayne got off Cash Money record label. Well, Drake implies that Scorpion has fulfilled his contract with Cash Money.
He still mentions Rihanna
Rumours of Drake and Rihanna being more than just a dynamic musical duo have been surfacing for a while now. Here he is, mentioning her in another song. “You cannot be right here next to me. Don’t you see Riri right next to me?” – “Hype”.
