Drake - Scorpion Album Credits and Stream

So voila. Here's an epic double-album, a colossal 25 tracks, an odyssey somehow even lengthier than Drake's previous emo-quests.

The song "March 14" has more information about Drake's fatherhood.

Below are the most shocking revelations on Scorpion and what they mean in the context of Drake's career. The song that Drake used on "Don't Matter to Me" was reportedly recorded before the release of Thriller, so Michael must have had it locked away in the vault for some time. Over a luxurious beat, Drake boasts that his "Mount Rushmore is me with four different expressions", but moments later he softens his stance: "This just the intro / Let me not get ahead of myself".

A dreamy mid-tempo R&B track driven by a synthesized bass, "Don't Matter To Me" is in line with the late output of Jackson whose distinct voice is heard on the chorus.

In the song "Emotionless", Drake, 31, talks about the secrecy, saying, "I wasn't hiding my kid from the world".

"You are hiding a child, let that boy come home", Pusha raps on the track, claiming Drake is playing "border patrol". Guests on the project include Jay Z, Michael Jackson, Static Major, and Ty Dolla Sign.

Not only did the "Nice for What" confirm he had a son, but he also goes back to his signature move of taking us on an emotional ride and getting us in our feelings.

The new album nearly immediately racked up a grip of hip-hop co-signs.

"Breaking news in my life I don't run to the blogs".

Pusha T's infamous diss track - where he was in full investigative journalist mode, divulging new information about Drake while also shading his mother, father and bestie - hit Drake hard.

"I want my baby to have your eyes, I'm going against my own advice/ should I do NY?" I used to challenge my parents on every album.

Drake is not good at being sexy-the production on his music can sound sexy, but he basically never pulls off sounding sexy in a verse. We'll see if Scorpion can get close to that.

Later in the song, Drake references the fractured relationship between his parents.

On the production end of things, the album's B Side features prominent contributions from Noel Cadastre, a longtime OVO engineer who crafts the dour soundscapes of "Jaded", "Finesse" and the Nicki Minaj-sampling "That's How You Feel".
