Drake's Scorpion Album Is Legit Averaging 10 Million Streams - Per Hour

Scorpion is averaging 10m streams per hour at Spotify, and its tracks occupy the Top 25 slots at Apple Music.

The popularity is likely helped by widespread promotion of the project.

To be fair to Drake, he's new to being a dad. When Drake instead released a song, I was upset. And, it's believed that the mother of the child is Sophie Brussaux, whom Drake had a casual fling with a year ago.

"Scorpion" is on track to beat the single-week streaming record of 431 million, which is now held by rapper Post Malone's sophomore album "Beerbongs and Bentleys.' The Verge notes that 'Scorpion" could even reach 1 billion streams during its first week - more than double the current record held by Post Malone.

On the track "Sandi's Rose", the rapper confirms that he has a child, reportedly shared with former adult film star Sophie Brussaux.

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. Drake's reply? It appears roughly 10 minutes into "Scorpion" and kind of out of nowhere: "I wasn't hiding my kid from the world", he explains over a Mobius-stripped Mariah Carey sample.

Seven-track albums? Drake isn't trying to hear all that.

"You are hiding a child, let that boy come home", Pusha raps on the track, claiming Drake is playing "border patrol".

He has got the King of Pop on one of the choruses.

And then there's "March 14", the closing track, which is a long and inward-looking verse about becoming a father.

He also addressed the news in another song, "March 14", citing a classic Michael Jackson hit, "She's not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine". On "Is There More", though, he hints at going independent after Scorpion: "Soon as this album drops, I'm outta the deal". "We understand she may have problems getting into the United States".

Perhaps this is Drake's way of saying that he and JAY-Z are good despite the media spectacle surrounding a jab the rap icon took at him on The Carters new album, Everything Is Love.
