Scorpion is Drake’s fifth album. He previewed the release with multiple hits like “God’s Plan,” “Nice for What” and “I’m Upset.” The double album boasts big features from acts like Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj and Future. The biggest one, though, is the late and great Jackson on “Don’t Matter to Me.”
“Don’t Matter to Me” is one of the songs on the R&B of Scorpion. Long-time collaborator Noah “40” Shebib supplies Drake with an atmospheric soundscape that both artists glide across. Drake gets into his feelings once again about a girl that’s trying shake him off in all the wrong ways. “Drinking’s enough of a vice / Drugs just aren’t suiting you right,” he sings. By way of a sample from an unreleased song, Jackson soars and reiterates the heartbreak. “All of a sudden you say you don’t want me anymore,” he adds. Music gods meet on the moody and miraculous track that will mean a lot to past and modern pop fans.
“Don’t Matter to Me” featuring Jackson is now available on iTunes and Apple Music alongside the Scorpion album. Another posthumous feature on Drake's record is from Lil Wayne "Lollipop" hitmaker Static Major on "After Dark."
