Prominent Canadian singer and rapper, Drake, in the early hours of Friday morning resurrected deceased pop legend, Michael Jackson, on his new studio album titled “Scorpion” and the internet has refused to stop talking.
Following weeks of suspense and anticipation, the rapper released “Scorpion”, a 25-track album, which is his fifth studio album and which features the posthumous appearance of Jackson on the song titled, “Don’t Matter To Me”.
The unique voice of the deceased icon can be heard in the chorus of the R&B soundtrack.
“All of a sudden you say you don’t want me no more / All of a sudden you say that I closed the door / It don’t matter to me,” Jackson sings in the chorus.
Although Drake has not opened up on the origin of this song, Jackson who passed on June 25, 2009, left a couple of unfinished songs prior to his death.
