Scorpion will be Drake’s first studio album since 2016’s Views. The singles for the album have been some of the rapper’s most successful to date, with “God’s Plan” spending a whopping 11 weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100. “Nice for What”, which features a prominent Lauryn Hill sample, topped the Billboard Hot 100 for an additional five weeks.
The third single “I’m Upset” has failed to chart as high, peaking at number fifteen on the Hot 100, but the music video, which sees Drake reunite with the cast of the hit show Degrassi, has been well-received by fans. You can check it out below.
