"I only met you one time, introduced you to St. Nick", he raps.
Their were rumors circulating online previous year that following the release of Drake's More Life playlist, the OVO rapper would be leaving Birdman's Cash Money records label and taking his talents elsewhere.
It was during a beef with Drake that Pusha T first told the world about the Canadian rapper's child. Two times / And both times were nothing like the new times / Now it's rough times / I'm out here on front lines just tryna make sure that I see him sometimes. Drake then seemingly addresses his relationship with his son's mother by referencing Michael Jackson's hit "Billie Jean" in the song "March 14".
The 25-track project includes his singles "God's Plan", "Nice for What", and "I'm Upset". The vocals of Michael was recorded previously for an unreleased demo track, which Drake now samples.
Drake reveals more information about the baby on the track, including that the little boy was born on October 11 and he celebrated in Miami, Florida, when a DNA test confirmed his paternity. A previous posthumous duet, "Love Never Felt So Good", came out in 2014 between Jackson and pop star Justin Timberlake.
"Scorpion", which clocks in at almost 90 minutes, features an array of guest appearances by marquee rappers like Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj and Future.
His older albums have been spared the Drake treatment, for now at least. The double-album will release under Cash Money Records, Young Money Entertainment and Republic Records ahead of his scheduled "Aubrey and the Three Amigos Tour" with rap group Migos.
