According to the song lyrics on Genius, in the song Emotionless, the star speaks about his child. His new album also features a previously unreleased song by Michael Jackson.
At the end of May, rapper Pusha-T released a diss track called The Story of Adidon where he claimed Drake, 31, had a son called Adonis. The musician stated that Drake had the child with an adult actress named Sophie Brussaux.
Now months after the heavy speculation, Drake has released the album called Scorpion where he finally addresses the rumors. In the song Emotionless, the rapper finally confirms that he did father a son with French former adult movie star Brussaux.

Speaking about his experience on fatherhood, he shared, 'I wasn't hiding my kid from the world/I was hiding the world from my kid.’ He also added, 'I had to come to terms with the fact that it’s not a maybe. That [expletive] is in stone, sealed and signed.’
'She's not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine. [Expletive], we only met two times.'

The song also included lyrics about the difficulties of being a single father to a child who lives with his mother in a different country. Brussaux is a former adult film star who was spotted with Drake in January 2017.
In May last year, she claimed she was three-and-a-half months pregnant with Drake’s child. At the time, she hired two well-known New York City attorneys to prove paternity and seek child support.
Drake’s representative denied the child was the musicians. At the time they said the rumors were not true and insisted that the woman had a 'very questionable background.'
The now-vindicated Brussaux has always shared images of their son on her Instagram. Besides admitting that he has a child, Drake also revealed that his new album featured a previously unreleased song by the late Michael Jackson.
The star took to Instagram to post a track list of Scorpion. The tenth track on the B side is Don't Matter To Me and features Jackson.
On his album, Drake raps and sings along to the Jackson song. It’s claimed that the track is similar to the 2014 Jackson song, Love Never Felt So Good.
The album has 25 tracks, 12 on side A and 13 on side B. It also features guest appearances by Jay-Z, Static Major and, Ty Dolla Sign. Credited elsewhere on the album are Nicki Minaj, Future, and Paul Anka.
