Drake Confirms He’s A Father On New Album ‘Scorpion’

After much speculation, Drake has broken his silence and confirmed the reports that he fathered a child. On a pair of tracks off his just-released album Scorpion, he opens up about his paternity.

On Side A of the double-disc project, Drake first acknowledges the news on “Emotionless,” which samples Mariah Carey. “I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid,” raps Drake. “From empty souls who just wake up and looked to debate/ Until you starin’ at your seed, you can never relate,” he finishes the line.

A few songs later, Drizzy would briefly touch on the subject again on “8 of 10.” He raps, “Kiss my son on the forehead, then kiss your ass goodbye/ As luck would have it, I’ve settled into my role as the good guy.”

The most eye-opening moment comes on the closing track of Side B, “March 14.” The title is allegedly in reference to the exact day Drake found out he was a father. The song acts as an open letter, where he speaks on in-depth about his son, fatherhood, the feeling when he found out he was the father, and draws parallels of now being a co-parent after condemning his own father for years under the same circumstances.

“Yesterday morning was crazy

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

Sandi used to tell me all it takes is one time, and all it took was one time

Shit, we only met two times, two times

And both times were nothing like the new times

Now it’s rough times

I’m out here on front lines just trying to make sure that 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

Always promised the family unit

I wanted it to be different because I’ve been through it

But this is the harsh truth now

Fairy tales are saved for the bedtime stories I tell you now

I don’t want you worry about whose house you live at

Or who loves you more, or who’s not there

Who did what to who ‘fore you got here

Now, look, I’m too proud to let that come between me and you now

Realize I got to think for two now, I gotta make it, I better make it

I promise if I’m not dead then I’m dedicated

This the first positive DNA we ever celebrated

I can’t forget the looks on they faces

Got the news in Miami that we all now got ones that we raisin’

Tell Gelo bring some, uh, Rosé and Baccarat out for our cheers to the next generation”
