On that song, Drake raps, with more regret that excitement, about learning that he really is the kid's father.
It's been a month since Pusha T put out "The Story of Adidon" and other than an Instagram post responding to the photo of Drake in blackface (it was real) that accompanied the track, Drake has stayed relatively quiet - until now.
Drake's music career took off in 2010 when he released debut album Thank Me Later, which debuted number one in the U.S. charts. The song that Drake used on "Don't Matter to Me" was reportedly recorded before the release of Thriller, so Michael must have had it locked away in the vault for some time.
The admission caps off a period of intense speculation, but some details are yet to be clarified. Probably, Drake will not have to worry about being plagiarized in too many mother's day cards this year. For what it's worth, you can check it out HERE.
"You are hiding a child, let that boy come home", Pusha raps on the track, claiming Drake is playing "border patrol".

Drake confirmed the rumors about him having a child when his highly anticipated fifth studio album Scorpion dropped Friday The Toronto rapper let his listeners know that the allegations were true on a track called, "Emotionless". And another highlight is the Jackson-featured "Don't Matter to Me" with its transcendent vocals from a previously unreleased tune by the King of Pop.
He offered a shout-out of sorts when stopping in Drake's hometown in May, while accepting a lifetime achievement honour during Canadian Music Week.
Later on the album, Drake hints that he has only seen his child once and is embarrassed he is following the footsteps of his divorced parents. Rap officially surpassed rock in 2017 as the biggest music genre in the United States.
The only ones I want to tell are in my phone I can call. On "Survival", he touches on it yet again by saying, "I'm pretty sure we got a label, I'm still independent".
We also hear a snippet of Nicki Minaj from what sounds like a 2014 live performance on "That's How You Feel".
