Rapper Drake has subtly revealed that he is a father on his much-anticipated new album.

Stream Drake's new album Scorpion on iTunes and Apple Music. Mariah Carey's "Emotions" gets sampled on Drake's "Emotionless".

The move will likely help Drake regain his crown as Spotify's most-streamed artist after being unseated by Colombian reggaeton singer J Balvin, known for his hit "Mi Gente", earlier this week. He also used a real photo of Drake in blackface as the cover art. Drake had to clarify he took the photo as part of an art project highlighting the struggles of black actors.

But the world No 6 survived and then stormed back from 4-1 down to take the second set tie-break. Djokovic said when asked how he would cope with the power of Cilic's serve.


The previous biggest global debut on Apple Music was another Drake project - mixtape More Life, released in March past year - which was streamed 89.9m times worldwide in its opening 24 hours on the platform. After dropping No. 1 singles and genius music videos, sharing strategically cryptic social media posts, and strangely pulling off a pump fake in a rap beef, the Toronto rapper has released Scorpion, his fifth studio album and first double album. That confirms the rumor, shared by Pusha T, that the Canadian rapper, 31, fathered a child, reportedly with Sophie Brussaux, a former French adult film star.

"I wasn't hiding my kid from the world / I was hiding the world from my kid / Breakin' news in my life I don't run to the blogs / The only ones I wanna tell are the ones I can call".

The revelation comes after a few months of public speculation. Other songs that reference his son include "8 Out of 10" and the closer "March 14", where he directly addresses the boy ("I only met you one time, introduced you to Saint Nick.") and confesses he's "embarrassed" to tell his divorced parents he's "a co-parent" too. Rather than an ode to his mother's tireless labors, Drake recounts how lucky she is to have him: "Sandra knows I pulled us out of a living hell/I'm the chosen one, flowers never pick themselves". The track itself finds Drake pondering whether there is anything for a superstar like him beyond money and status. Drake showed up around 4:30 and entered via a side door, an eyewitness told E! "I legitimately think he's pop music in the way that Michael Jackson and Madonna were pop music, in the sense that they take all these influences and all these genres and use themselves as a filter through which they're distilled into something brand new", Scott said.
