Drake has confirmed that he does in fact have a child, following rapper Pusha T's dis track where he claimed Drake had a secret child.

The Canadian rapper confirmed the rumour on track 'Emotionless' from his new album Scorpion, saying: "I wasn't hiding my kid from the world/I was hiding the world from my kid."

He has yet to confirm who the mother is, but there is speculation she is porn star Sophie Braussaux, who claimed last year the rapper asked her to get an abortion.

A spokesperson for Drake denied the rumours to Vanity Fair last year, saying: "She is one of many women claiming he got them pregnant. If it is in fact Drake's child, which he does not believe, he would do the right thing by the child."

With polarised reviews so far, the album takes listeners through what appears to be Drake's existential crisis and his difficult relationship with the internet.

At one point he claims "comment sections" are killing him.

Scorpion is the OVO Sound rapper's fifth album. It's an extensive 25 tracks long, and features Jay Z, Michael Jackson and Ty$.
