On new album, Drake appears confirming rumors of son


LOS ANGELES (AP) — On his new album “Scorpion” released on Friday, Drake appears to con- firm he is a father.

In two songs on his fifth album, the 31-yearold rapper from Canada seems to address rumors that he fathered a son with a former French adult-film star.

In “Emotionles­s,” Drake raps, “I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid.” In “March 14,” he uses a Michael Jackson reference to say, “She not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine.”

The 25-track album – a follow-up to “More Life” from 2017 – features the No. 1 singles “God’s Plan” and “Nice For What.”

Jay Z, Future, Static Major and Ty Dolla Sign are among the artists who appear on the new album. He also samples Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey.
