Hold on to your wigs, Drake just dropped his double album Scorpion and Twitter is about to break. The 25-track album has all the pre-released certified bops like God’s Plan, Nice for What and I’m Upset. It features all of our favs including Nicki Minaj, Future, Ty Dolla $ign, Static Major and Jay Z. Perhaps the biggest shocker is that the album features an unreleased track from the late King of Pop Michael Jackson. Scorpion was only released in the early hours of Friday and has been trending on Twitter since Thursday. The Daily Vox rounds up the Twitter reactions.

Remember everyone’s favourite Drake album Take Care? It was a Tumblr aesthetic and a lifestyle. Yeah, some are saying Scorpion is even better.
Didn’t think Drake was going to top Take Care… then he did it. #Scorpion

Scorpion also brings back R&B Drake whom we all know and love.

One of the biggest shockers for those listening was Drake’s confirmation that he does indeed have a son.
I knew Drake had a kid but I can’t believe Drake really has a kid.

On his song Emotionless, Drake addresses his beef with Pusha-T’ who accused Drake of fathering and hiding a son in Story of Adidon.

Of course folk were shaken that Drake resurrected the legend Michael Jackson on his album.
Drake literally woke Michael Jackson from the dead to do a feature with him… the fucking audacity

Be warned: Instagram is about to be packed with Drake lyrics featured as captions.

But, apparently Drake is also giving folk inspiration to enter the DMs.

It’s not just Instagram, there’s a slew of tweets about Drake lyrics – and we know this is only the beginning.
When Drake said “It’s not the cheating that hurts, it’s the type of niggas she cheats with. Now I have to look him in her eyes and see he’s had half of me, and he isn’t even half of me” I felt that 💯😔😤

As usual, Drake has got folk in the feels – some people are quarter to calling their exes.

Maybe it isn’t an idea to call your ex.
