Drake dropped Scorpion today, a double album on which he confirms his new fatherhood and utilises some very expensive-sounding samples. Some fans have been thinking about another Scorpion this morning; the one Eve released in 2001.
That album was the second studio effort from the then Ruff Ryders member and featured some of the biggest crossover rap singles of that year in "Who's That Girl?" and Gwen Stefani collaboration, "Let Me Blow Ya Mind." Just like Drake, the album's title is a reference to Eve's star sign.
Over on Twitter fans of Eve's are reminding people of the O.G. Scorpion while others were listening to the record while they waited for Drake's to appear on streaming services. You can see a selection of people's reactions below. Eve herself has yet to comment on Drake's latest opus.

So I just took a listen to the Drake album, even tho I'm not a fan like that (cause I give everything a chance). All he did was confirm what I always thought about him. And I'll leave it at that. Besides, Eve already had a album called Scorpion 😆😂🤣 (Ether pun intended😁)!— Tiffany Rayne (@TiffanyRayne) June 29, 2018

The only Scorpion I know and respect is owned and was released by the one and only Eve. Everything else is a chameleon— Pickle Vee (@GenocideCutt3r) June 29, 2018
