NEW YORK – A month ago, Drake's world crumbled.
Now he is untouchable.
Pusha Ts notorious dissonst track – where he was in investigative journalism mode, revealing new information about Drake and at the same time his shadowed mother, father and beast – beat Drake hard. Drake's answer – well, the absence of it – marked a low for the rapper-singer who had surprised music fans by winning his rap beef with Meek Mill in 2015.
But Drake, who was criticized by many as being too commercial for being too soft, is apparently unimpressed. And the fans who enjoyed the revelations in Pusha Ts's "The Story of Adidon" are likely to hear "Scorpion," the much-anticipated 25-track album of pop music # 1
"It will not hurt him," said Carl Chery, Spotify's creative director of urban music, about the trail of dissent. "When Drake comes out with his new single, you will not hear about it, everyone will run and play, and it will be an Instagram caption."
"Scorpion," the songs with Jay-Z and a previously unreleased Michael Jackson Contains the massive # 1 hits "God's Plan" and "Nice for What". It is expected to debut at No. 1, and it was already strong in social media trends before its release.
Drake memes have been a trend in recent weeks as well, but it was not an advertisement he hoped for. Instead, the rapper – who was considered too sensitive by some hip-hop minds – was toasted after the release of "The Story of Adidon," which included a photo of Drake in Blackface in addition to the lyrical template for the jugular template ( The rapper explained that this was an advertising campaign from a project about the hardships of black actors.)
Pusha T started the beef with a line in his recently released album "Daytona" and Drake responded with a whole trail of excavations in the song "Duppy Freestyle." It seemed he won the fight until Pusha T cleared his lane – and Drake fell silent.  Damien Scott, Complex Editor-in-Chief and Vice President of Content and Development, said that he thought Drake might have gone back to the studio to resume "Scorpion" after Pusha Ts shocking revelation that Drake was a father ("A Baby is involved, it's deeper than rap / we talk character, let me stick to the facts / you "hide a kid, let the boy come home.")
"I think that the Diss has an impact on him personally and as an artist, "said Scott, who said that the song would not affect Drake's professionalism." He has never been in this room before. He has never been on his left foot and I do not think he knows what it's like. "
Scott may have been right, for the first time Drake addresses his son in a song and raps on" Emotionless ":" I did not hide my child from the world, I hid the world from my child. " the final track "14. March, "he raps about being a single dad and says," She's not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine. "
For another artist, such a heavy trail of dissent could have affected her career – but not for Drake.  "He can still bring out this (album) and get so much love in the midst of all this other drama that happens," said Cori Murray, entertainment director at Essence. "He is still loved."  The Grammy winner has been a rapper and vocalist ever since his rise from the drama world to the music scene in 2009 with one hit after another, multiplatinal and collaborations with everyone from Rihanna to Romeo Santos, and his sound has evolved over the years to integrate not only rap and R & B, but also pop, dancehall and African music.
"I call Drake Pop Star # 1 because of his style of music. And I do not mean that a bwertend. I quite rightly believe that he is pop music, just as Michael Jackson and Madonna were pop music, in the sense that they use all of these influences and all of these genres and use themselves as filters that distill them into something new. " , Scott said.
"I learned about WizKid because of Drake. I learned about Black Coffee because of Drake, "Murray said of the Nigerian singer who performed on Drake's hit" One Dance "and the South African DJ performing around the world." He introduces you to something (new) … so why would not you thank him for introducing us to someone we might not know about yet? "
Chery said Drake's ever-changing sound had kept him constant – with fans and pop-ups Charts
"You have to change over time, and he did," said Chery, pointing out that Drake's recent collaboration includes Migo and up-and-coming rapper Lil Baby. "I think he really has the pulse of the action , And he knows when it's right for him to jump on something and integrate it into his game plan. "
" He is, in a sense, a tactile maker, "added Chery.
