(Newser) – "She’s not my lover like Billie Jean but the kid is mine/ Sandi used to tell me all it takes is one time, and all it took was one time/ S---, we only met two times, two times," Drake raps in a new album, Scorpion, which dropped late Thursday. "Sandi" is his mom, Sandi Graham, "she" is apparently French former adult-film star Sophie Brussaux, and "the kid" is apparently the son they share, reports People. The Canadian rapper says DNA confirmed the child, born October 11, is his, and raps that, "I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world/I was hiding the world from my kid." Further, "I used to challenge my parents on every album/ Now I’m embarrassed to tell them I ended up as a co-parent/ Always promised the family unit/ I wanted it to be different because I’ve been through it." Vulture has more reveals from the new album. (Read more Drake stories.)
