    Drake confirms he's a father on his new album.

    The 31-year-old rapper from Canada released "Scorpion" on Friday. In two songs on his fifth album, he addresses rumors that he fathered a son with a former French adult-film star.

    In "Emotionless," Drake raps, "I wasn't hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid." In "March 14," he uses a Michael Jackson reference to say, "She not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine."

    The 25-track album features the singles "God's Plan" and "Nice For What." The album follows "More Life" from 2017.
