“Yesterday morning was crazy/I had to come to terms with the fact that it’s not a maybe/That s**t’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”—Drake on “March 14”— XXL Magazine (@XXL) June 29, 2018
After weeks of speculation, Drake confirms on his new album Scorpion that he’s a dad.
Vulture reports that, among other things, the double LP finds Drizzy rapping about trying to protect his son from internet rumors, single parenting, and finding out he was going to be a dad despite only meeting up with his child’s mother “two times.”
On “Emotionless,” Drake raps, “Look at the way we live / I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid.”
On album closer “March 14,” the rapper adds, “Yesterday morning was crazy / I had to come to terms with the fact that it’s not a maybe / That s**t is in stone, sealed and signed / She’s not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine."
The album also features vocals from the late Michael Jackson on "Don't Matter to Me." Scorpion is out now.
