Drake on course to smash streaming records with 'Scorpion'

Lydia FlemingJul 01, 2018

On "Nonstop", Drake raps "Yeah I'm light skinned, but I'm still a dark n*gga", which could be a jab at Pusha-T's "Story of Adidon" and the Blackface cover photo the G.O.O.D.

The streaming platform says the album has logged more than 170 million streams worldwide since its release Friday, more than doubling Drake's prior one-day record on Apple Music with last year's "More Life".

Spotify has prominently featured Drake's new music on some of its most-listened playlists, which span a variety of genres. "Because of Drake I learned about Black Coffee", Murray said of the Nigerian singer who appeared on Drake's hit "One Dance" and the South African DJ who performs around the world. That's not all, though.

Again, on "Billie Jean", Drake says he rushed out and bought a crib for his newborn son, but also admitted he only met the child once, which was at Christmastime.

'Solo' box office struggles may have doomed future 'Star Wars' spinoffs
For now, the only Star Wars film confirmed with a release date is the upcoming Episode IX , which will debut December 20, 2019. A recent analyst report indicated that the movie's poor marketing was to blame for the film's struggles.

Drake, Canadian rapper, has released his fifth studio album titled "Scorpion". Pop archaeologists have carbon dated the original sessions to slightly before the recording of Thriller; Jackson indeed sounds as if he is singing beyond the grave as his voice swoops in.

Jackson isn't the only artist who makes a posthumous appearance on Scorpion, though. The rapper, who as a child divided his time between his mother in Toronto and his father in Tennessee, reflects on how he always dreamed of not repeating history, of starting a family in a loving relationship. Similarly, Beyoncé and Jay-Z's surprise collaborative album, "Everything is Love", was a breezy nine tracks.

That's a lot to process right there and that's just a fraction of the album, which also features Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Ty Dolla $ign, Future, PartyNextDoor, and unreleased music from the late Michael Jackson.

Scorpion is out now via Young Money/Cash Money Records. "I feel like, if he didn't finish it, you shouldn't use it. Respect the artist, I just don't feel like it's OK to use someone's vocals and. change them". Damn, Drake, you got me there, man. The latter often leads to moments of melancholy over how social media is seemingly poisoning people and not allowing them to enjoy life without trying to prove something to strangers, which is a thing that Drake assures the listener he has never done.
