The new Drake album features a verse from Michael Jackson

Interesting choice.

Drake doesn't exactly need to do much promoting for his albums.

He just puts them out, and people listen.

But for his new album Scorpion, he has done something that is sure to get people talking.

He has got the King of Pop on one of the choruses.

Obviously the album is out less than 24 hours at the time of writing, so it's hard to get a full grasp of how it will be received in the future, but if Drake's previous work is anything to go by, we've got a damn good record on our hands.

Scorpion is 25 songs in length, with one half of the album being hip-hop based, and the other having a more R&B style.

Undoubtedly, one of the best efforts on the album has a feature from none other than the King of Pop - Michael Jackson.

And it's not some verse off one of his old albums, it's actually some never-heard before footage.

How cool is that?

The song is called 'Don't Matter To Me', and you can listen to it here.

It's a pretty brave move getting Michael Jackson to sing the chorus on one of your songs, nine years after the iconic star's death.

Drake could even be alluding to something a lot more meaningful by doing this.

Michael Jackson is quite commonly referred to as the greatest artist of all time. The GOAT. A term that is thrown around quite a lot lately.

Is Drake subtly telling us that he should be mentioned in the GOAT conversation? Or are we reading too much into it?

Probably the latter to be honest.

Definitely a good song though.
