Having teased the album for some time before sharing the lengthy 25 song tracklist, today the Canadian rapper’s new double album fifth studio LP has arrived on streaming services – featuring the singles ‘God’s Plan’, ‘I’m Upset’ and ‘Nice For What’.

The album also featured unreleased Michael Jackson vocals on the track ‘Don’t Matter To Me’, while Jay-Z guests on ‘Talk Up’, both Ty Dolla $ign and Static Major lend vocals to ‘After Dark’ and Future” contributes to ‘Blue Tint’.
Fans are also surprised that the Toronto rapper confirms allegations made by Pusha-T on the diss track ‘The Story Of Adidon’ – confessing that he has a son named Adonis.
On the track ‘Emotionless’, Drake raps: “I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid…Breaking news in my life I don’t run to the blogs/ the only ones I want to tell are in my phone I can call/ They always ask, ‘Why let it run if it’s false’/ You know a wise man once said nothing at all.”
Later on album closer ‘March 14’, he futher addresses fatherhood:
“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 / Sandy 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 frontlines, 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 ’em I ended up as a co-parent / Always promised the family unit / I wanted it to be different because I been through it, but this is the harsh truth now.”
Initially, Pusha T had taken aim at Drake overt ghostwriting accusations on the final track of his recently-released album ‘Daytona’, which prompted a swift response from Drake with the retort ‘Duppy Freestyle’. However, earlier this month Pusha confirmed that their feud was ‘all over’.
