Michael Jackson returns posthumously on Drake album

Drake's "Scorpion", the highly anticipated, 25-track album by pop music's No. 1 player, was released Friday.

"I wasn't hiding my kid from the world", he responds on Emotionless, to the strains of a swirling Mariah Carey vocal sample. On the song "Emotionless" he says, "I wasn't hiding my child from the world".

"Yesterday morning was insane / I had to come to terms with the fact that it's not a maybe / That shit is in stone, sealed and signed / She not my lover like Billie Jean but the kid is mine", he explains.

"God's Plan" and "Nice For What" are both included, one on each part of the double album, so if all you want to do is bump the hits, you're covered.

Now that Scorpion is out, Drake has the floor and is ready to talk about everything: the beef (which is referenced a few times throughout the album), his private life and, yes, that includes a son.

Drake recently feuded with rapper Pusha T, who accused him of hiding a son named Adonis.

Drake's new album Scorpion is finally here, and you can listen to it on Apple Music below. Seriously, there are odds on whether or not Drake will diss Pusha T on this album.

What do you think of Drake's Scorpion? Everyone on social media who are bothering her over her child is assholes and need to pay more attention to their own lives.

Scorpion's major guest turn, meanwhile, is by Jay-Z, fresh from the surprise release of Beyoncé hook-up Everything Is Love.

In the pensive, bluesy track, Drake reflects of his mother's early florist business: "My mother had a flower shop, but I was Sandra's Rose". Rap officially surpassed rock in 2017 as the biggest music genre in the United States. We only included ones that are on Spotify, and included the deluxe version of "Nothing Was the Same", which has an additional two songs. When Drake instead released a song, I was upset.

So that's new. Otherwise, Drake is content to rehash his familiar sorrows as he sleepwalks down the same melodic paths that's he's been following since 2011's "Take Care."

Later on the album, Drake hints that he has only seen his child once and is embarrassed he is following the footsteps of his divorced parents.
