Drake's new album Scorpion dropped on Friday, June 29, and already it's the most Drake of Drake albums. The album comes on the heels of a high-profile feud (Pusha-T baby mama drama, anyone?) as well as perhaps the most nostalgia-producing music video ever created. ("I'm Upset" is the Degrassi reunion I prayed would one day exist.) With 25 tracks (25!!!!) on this double-sided album, Drake is here to spill some truth on Scorpion.
And why not? Drake is incapable of being anything other than his unadulterated, emotional self, and the lyrics on Scorpion are proof of that.
They are sad. They are about heartbreak. And yet, somehow, they also remind you that Drake is unapologetically better than you.
