Drake Shares First Photos of His Son, Adonis

And we have Pusha-T to thank for bringing the family together.

A short lifetime ago, the most-discussed topic of pop culture was the ongoing beef between Drake and Pusha-T.

Drake—Drizzy, Champagne Papi, Canada's finest export—is no newbie to feuds with his contemporaries. But in spring of 2018, just before Drake released his most recent album Scorpion, Pusha went where no opponent had gone before: confirming the longstanding rumor that the "God's Plan" rapper had a child.

Today, Drake finally seems to be owning up to his fatherhood, having shared a handful of photos of his son, Adonis, on Instagram. "I love and miss my beautiful family and friends and I can't wait for the joyful day when we are all able to reunite," Drake wrote in the caption, marking the first time he's posted photos (or directly acknowledged) his two-year-old child. With piercing blue eyes and a full head of blonde ringlets, they don't look much alike (as we've discussed, celebrity genetics are wild), but this proof of parenthood is as good as any. He also included a full-family shot featuring Adonis' mother, French artist Sophie Brussaux.

Whispers of Drake's potential fatherhood have been circulating for years, but no names had been confirmed until Pusha's diss track aimed at Drake, "The Story of Adidon," first surfaced. "A baby's involved, it's deeper than rap," Pusha says on the song. "You are hiding a child, let that boy come home...Adonis is your son / And he deserves more than an Adidas press run; that's real."

Considering how sneaky Drake had been previously about his child, it seems like we very well might have never known about Adonis if it weren't for the diss track. Who knew? Pusha-T: bringing families together since 2020.

Canadian singer-songwriter Tianda introduces "My God," a track that searches for respite from guilt.

Tianda explains, "'My God' is a self-portrait. It's all of the things I couldn't say when I was younger because I didn't understand them yet. The hook of 'they won't let me go' repeating over and over captures the feeling of being held captive by thoughts you don't understand and can't control." Tianda's evocative multi-hued voice glides over a dark pop melody in this haunting new song.

Fake Shark Makes a Comeback with "Invincible"

The Canadian indie-pop outfit returns with an anthemic new single and their first release of 2019.

Fake Shark's new single is an anthemic shot of energy, the sound of the band closing ranks with an arena-rock feel.

The Vancouver group's latest release is their first since last year's Walking Through a Fantasy, and now, in an exclusive Popdust premiere, Fake Shark shares "Invincible," the next chapter in the band's story.

A staccato piano introduces the track, followed close behind by lead singer Kevvy's murmured vocals, racking up the song's tension. "Feel like I've been on the run forever," Kevvy confesses, just before the chorus arrives over echoing guitars and booming drums. Fake Shark's brawny sound tears the song open, while Kevvy's slick vocals promise that the band isn't going anywhere: "Invincible" is the sound of Fake Shark insisting on their own presence.

"We've been through so much together, and we're still here and we're not going anywhere because we've only just scratched the surface of our potential," Kevvy says of the story behind "Invincible." "We've all been to hell and back together, been hit with everything this industry can throw at us and we keep coming back." "Invincible" kicks off a new phase in Fake Shark's career with characteristic vigor, and it's anyone's guess what's next.
