In "Emotionless," Drake raps, "I wasn't hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid." In "March 14," he uses a Michael Jackson reference to say, "She not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine."

The 25-track album features the singles "God's Plan" and "Nice For What." The album follows More Life from 2017.

Jay Z, Future, Static Major and Ty Dolla Sign are among the artists who appear on the new album. He also samples Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey.
