Check out the album in full below. The album features guest appearances from JAY-Z, Michael Jackson, Ty Dolla $ign, and Static Major. Those rumours picked up steam in May when a spat between Drake and fellow rapper Pusha-T escalated into the diss track "The Story of Adidon", where the American rapper called out Drake for failing to take responsibility as a dad.
After that kerfuffle with Pusha-T, we wanted Drake to release another track.
- Steph (@lecraynay_) June 29, 2018 "Breakin' news in my life, I don't run to the blogs". The project has been teased for a while now, with billboards appearing in Toronto heralding its release a mere week before the album hit streaming platforms Spotify, Apple Music, and Tidal.
Drake goes hard and deep on the 25-track Double LP, alluding to everything from breaking out of his record deal with Young Money to getting punched by Diddy and hooking up with The Weeknd's ex, Bella Hadid. "I'm at the stage in my life that I don't want to waste my time [but Drake is] a good human being", Anka said working with the 31-year-old performer. He then notes that he has only met his son, Adonis, once so far, when he brought him "like 20 gifts" at Christmas time.More news: Portugal v Uruguay - Preview and possible lineups
A dreamy mid-tempo track driven by a synthesized R&B bass, "Don't Matter To Me" is in line with the adult output of Jackson, whose distinct voice is heard on the chorus.
Drake is not good at being sexy-the production on his music can sound sexy, but he basically never pulls off sounding sexy in a verse.
A few months after Jackson's death in 2009, however, Sony unveiled This Is It, a reworked version of the tune I Never Heard that he'd co-written with Anka.
Drake's representative responded earlier this year, saying: "This woman has a very questionable background. We've got a great record". (There was no way that Drake wasn't going to have Jamaican slang and references on this thing.) "Dada" is also a nomenclature for "father", which Drake is trying to insist he's happy to admit he is now. "He's introducing you to something (new) ... so why not give him his credit for introducing us to someone we may not have known about?"
