'Scorpion' is finally here! Drake released his highly-anticipated album on Thursday.

The double album, which has 25 tracks, features collaborations with Jay Z and Michael Jackson.

It's already eligible for RIAA-Platinum certification thanks to pre-sales and streams of hits such as 'God's Plan', 'I'm Upset', and 'Nice for What' - which is currently at number one on the Coca-Cola Top 40 chart.

Drake gets personal in the album, confirming for the first time that he has a son. 

Last month, rapper Pusha T accused Drake of having a secret child he did not want to acknowledge in a diss track called 'Infrared'.

Several publications reported last year that Drake fathered a child with former adult actress Sophie Brussaux. TMZ reported in May that the rapper was quietly giving her money to ensure she “lives comfortably". 

And now we get to hear from the man himself.  

“I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world/I was hiding the world from my kid," he raps on 'Emotionless' - which samples Mariah Carey's classic 'Emotions'. 

Drake also revealed that Sophie got pregnant after a one-night stand. He raps on 'March 14':

Yesterday morning was crazy
I had to come to terms with the fact that it’s not a maybe
That sh*t is in stone, sealed and signed
She’s not my lover like Billie Jean but the kid is mine
Sandi used to tell me all it takes it one time, and all it took was one time
Sh*t, we only met two times, two times

His mother's name is Sandi Graham and could be the person he is referring to. 

Sophie documented her pregnancy on her Instagram page, but is yet to reveal a picture of her son's face.
