The album features 25 tracks and two different sides. The “A Side” contains rap tracks, while the “B Side” highlights Drake’s talent for R&B. The album includes guest performances by Jay-Z and the deceased hip-hop legend Michael Jackson, as well.

Upon its release, Scorpion almost immediately made its way to the top of the Billboard charts. The album’s popularity may be in part to the bombshell which Drake embedded within a few of his songs (such as Emotionless and March 14) in which he confirms that he is the father of a boy named Adonis.

The milestones don’t stop here. Scorpion also reached a record one billion global streams within the first week of the album’s release date, a feat which has never been accomplished in that time frame.

New era. New platinum. Thank you a billion times over (a billion plus). ????

Furthermore, Drake broke another record which was previously held by the Beatles. Seven songs from Scorpion are currently in the Billboard Top 10. The songs that made it onto the list include: #1: Nice for What”, #2: “Nonstop”, #4: “God’s Plan”, #6: “In My Feelings”, #7: “I’m Upset”, #8: “Emotionless”, and #9: “Don’t Matter to Me.”

Drake broke his own record of total songs on Billboards Top 100 with 27 songs, including all 25 from Scorpion.

You can put this album in the win column for Drake as the rap artist continues to revolutionize the music industry.
