The vocals of the late Michael Jackson appear on "On Don't Matter to Me," which is believed to be from an unreleased song of MJ's.

Drake's long-awaited, fifth studio album -- "Scorpion" -- is finally here.

Released Friday at midnight, fans are already going bananas over the Toronto native's 25-track record, featuring Jay-Z, Ty Dolla $ign, Static Major and the posthumous vocals of Michael Jackson.

"Champagne Papi" even confirms on the album he fathered a son with a porn star and reveals why he kept it under wraps for so long.

Drake also included a savage editor's note to accompany the album, which appears to preemptively shut down his critics.

Below is the full breakdown of "Scorpion."

Editor's Note

Drake shut down his haters by compiling a list of the most frequent criticisms thrown his way. He published the complaints in all caps and made them the album's editor's note -- like a savage.

Drake's Response to Pusha-T

Pusha-T -- a longtime collaborator and friend of Kanye West -- recently outed Drake's secret son to the world, igniting a major feud.

Drake addressed the incident on "8 out of 10," saying, "Kiss my son on the forehead, then kiss your ass goodbye / As luck would have it, I've settled into my role as the good guy."

Drake Confirms Paternity & Explains Why He Hid His Kid

On his song "March 14," Drake confirms he has a child.

"Yesterday mornin' was crazy / I had to come to terms with the fact that it's not a maybe," he says. "That s--t is in stone / Sealed and signed. She's not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine / Sadie used to tell me all it takes is one time / And all it took was one time. S--t, we only met two times."

On "Emotionless," Drake explains why he kept his baby with adult film star Sophie Brussaux a secret, saying, "Look at the way we live / I wasn't hiding my kid from the world / I was hiding the world from my kid."

He goes on to say he didn't want his child in the media and that "the only ones I wanna tell are the ones I can call."

"They always ask, 'Why let the story run if it's false?' / You know a wise man once said nothin' at all," he says.

Drake's 'Dark' Thoughts

Drake alludes to having experienced suicidal thoughts on "Survival."

"Think my soul has been marked, there's a hole in my heart / Yeah, I was about to— / Man, I thought about it / It's unsettlin' to talk about it."

On "Nonstop," he also says, 'Yeah I'm light skinned, but I'm still a dark n---a."

Jay-Z's Tribute to XXXTentacion

On "Talk Up," Jay-Z pays tribute to 20-year-old South Florida rapper XXXTentacion, who was shot dead only 10 days ago.

Jay-Z reflects on how the "streets" targeted X but left George Zimmerman -- the man who murdered Trayvon Martin in February 2012 -- unscathed.

"Y'all killed X and let Zimmerman live, streets is done," he says on the track.

Jay-Z Disses Trump & Kanye

Also on "Talk Up," Jay-Z seemingly throws shade at President Donald Trump as well as Kanye, rapping, "I got your president tweetin' / I won't even meet with him."

Michael Jackson

The vocals of the late Michael Jackson appear on "On Don't Matter to Me." According to TMZ, the track is actually an unreleased song of MJ's. The format is similar to "Love Never Felt So Good," a 2014 Jackson tune turned into a duet with Justin Timberlake.

Internet Trolls & Rap Rivals

Drake's biggest struggle at the moment seems to be whether or not to engage with internet trolls and rap rivals.

On "Can't Take a Joke," he says, "I'm still in the studio at 6:45 / And my haters either on they way to work or they arrived / Back and forth to Italy, my comment section killin' me / I swear I get so passionate, y'all do not know the half of it."
