Drake dropped his double album ‘Scorpion’ at midnight, and Twitter is ON FIRE with reactions.
Not only has Aubrey brought it with a double album of fired up tracks, he addressed some elephants in the room, AKA yes, he is a father.
On the outro of “March 14” he says the following:
“Yesterday morning was crazy / I had to come to terms with the fact that it’s not a maybe… That shit’s in stone, sealed and signed / She not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine / Sandy used to tell me all it takes was one time and all it took was one time.”
“I’m out here on front lines just making sure I see him sometimes/ It’s breaking my spirit/ Single father, I hate when I hear it/ I used to challenge my parents on every album/ Now I’m embarrassed to tell them I ended up as a co-parent.”
Drake has been able to over-encompass his career into two albums, giving turn up tracks mixed with the emotional ones, and it’s probably the closest I’ve seen Drake come to ‘So Far Gone’ in terms of sound, especially in tracks like “Summer Games,” – but that doesn’t mean that Drake ever backslid.
It’s the perfect mix of Drake’s best: emotions, with a dash of trap. Some tracks sound like they land in the Migos territory, and since Aubrey is touring with them, that makes a lot of sense. The emotions are heavy, but at the same time – it’s not like Drizzy is sitting and crying in his room on every track. Still, he’ll get some trolling from that because the rap game isn’t exactly good with raw emotions regarding heartache.
I’m sure there will be a lot more in-depth discussions on the lyricism when it comes to ‘Scorpion,’ but let’s give the analysts time to immerse themselves.
