A Double Album From Drake Which Could Use Some Real Self-Editing

Double albums used to be common before the digital age beckoned and during those days, it suited the format of the album and the CD, because the delineation is clearly seen between the two albums because of the packaging. Also, it was a way for artists to easily get to #1 in the US charts because each album was counted as two. However, in this age of streaming and downloads, a double album like Drake’s Scorpion is not immediately noticeable and to people like me who have to plow through 25 songs without sensing any clear difference between one and the other, the task would seem so tedious. Unless of course, if one was a big Drake fan, this double album would be an absolute buffet feast for them! Congratulations though to Drake, because in my research, all 25 songs in this album charted in the US charts top 100 list. Imagine that! And to top that, seven of them went all the way to the top 10, with three of them going all the way to #1. I will talk about those songs later and why they do deserve to be at #1 in the singles chart. I think Drake’s motivation to release this much material was just to break streaming records and to capitalize on his still highly popular state. Otherwise, if he wasn’t that famous anymore, half of these songs would’ve been released much later as an album containing songs from a long-bygone recording session. Overall, I find the album a bit self-indulgent as the subject matter is mostly about Drake himself – his life, his fame, his kid, his love messages for his kid, his past relationships – it’s self-indulgent to say the least. I mean, if this is the direction rap is going to these next few years, that would be terrible for the genre. Admittedly the album has some very good songs (that’s why some of them went to #1), but should all the musings of a musician be converted into a full song – and should the public be allowed to suffer through them? Drake can just Instagram or tweet his feelings. That would save us from plowing through 12 or 13 songs of dullness and “It’s all about me, me, and me.”

By Pulling Off A Two-Part HipHop And RnB Album In Scorpion, Drake Proved That He Is Simply A Genius

What qualities really make a person a genius? A lot of people may argue that having a very high level of intelligence is the answer, but a lot more would rather argue that qualities like, precision, tenacity, will power and being able to multi-task should be added to the list. There have been a lot of people in our world who turned out to be geniuses, for example, Albert Einstein, Mozart, Cleopatra Michael Angelo, Muhammad Ali and others. Did they really possess all these qualities? It's hard to say. While some of them were highly intelligent, others weren't. Those who were not, depended on qualities like tenacity - the quality or fact of being very determined, the quality or fact of continuing to exist or persist - to make up for what they didn't have. And in the end, they all came up with extraordinary works in their different endeavors. That gives us an idea. A genius has to be someone who does whatever it is they can to produce an extraordinary work of art, or science. Drake's 2018 album Scorpion has such extraordinary features. When he announced the release of his 2018 album Scorpion, I, as well as many others, assumed it was going to be mostly Hip Hop music and probably a few RnB songs since he was in the habit of whipping up RnB tunes in between songs anyway. Little did we know that he had other plans. That body of work turned out to be partly of the Hip Hop and RnB genres respectively. Drake gave as much attention to RnB as he did to Hip Hop. That was amazing. It showed his mastery of the two genres and it brought back good old memories of the days when he indulged his RnB cravings so much. The days when the little guy out there wasn't sure if he was a Hip Hop artist or an RnB artist. Those days were gold. It is like being able to eat your cake and still have it. It is hard enough for most artists to succeed in one genre of music, but Drake effortlessly paddles through two - Hip Hop and RnB. Of course, some people may still argue that the aforementioned people are not geniuses, however, the point is, whether or not they are, their works give evidence of something spectacular, something extraordinary.
