Drake‘s fifth official studio album dropped last week, titled Scorpion, and it has proceeded to smash streaming records and excite fans who have tickets to see Drake on his Aubrey and the Three Amigos tour (with Migos) beginning at the end of July. We’ve combed through the album to predict and select 5 songs we want to hear Drake perform live from the album.

We left God’s Plan and Nice For What, the two Scorpion singles, off of the list below. We know that Drake will be performing those live once the tour begins.

Before you read the list below, make sure to scroll back up at the end and check out our Drake tour guide for information such as tickets, dates, media, setlist information and other live concert details.

 

5 Drake Scorpion Songs We Want to Hear Live

1. Nonstop

The second track on the album is a perfect concert opener or early show fan favorite to get the crowd hyped. Nonstop is an on-top-of-the-world banger in the same tune as other Drake songs like 10 Band, Free Smoke, and 0 to 100. It contains a few lyrical gems fit for Drake to flex his muscles on the big stage:

I just took it left like I’m ambidex’
Bitch, I move through London with the Euro step
Got a sneaker deal and I ain’t break a sweat
Catch me ’cause I’m goin’, outta there I’m gone
How I go from 6 to 23 like I’m LeBron?

and

Future took the business and ran it for me
I let Ollie take the owl, told him brand it for me
I get 2 million a pop and that’s standard for me
Like I went blind, dog, you gotta hand it to me

 

2. Sandra’s Rose

Drake fans have been waiting and wishing for a DJ Premier production on a Drake album for a number of years now. Sandra’s Rose sees the duo link up on boom-bap beat that Drake rides over effortlessly. The track is surprisingly lyrical, with classic Drake punchlines, a shout out to his mom and uncle, and a reminder of that Drake the rapper is a force to be reckoned with.

Niggas want a classic, that’s just ten of these
Crime family like the Genovese
You don’t want drama, capisci?
My house is full of supermodels just like Mohamed Hadid

Like “Show Me A Good Time” off Drake‘s debut album, this track may be a fan-favorite that doesn’t get the love it deserves on a big stage. Until the tour begins, we can wait and hope for this one to show up on the Drake setlist.

 

3. Don’t Matter To Me (Featuring Michael Jackson)

This track is feeling a little under-appreciated in the initial release of the album, but it’s hard to ignore a Michael Jackson featured Drake track in 2018. Let’s hope that Drake takes his Michael Jackson visuals on tour this summer, either with a full background video or (even better) a hologram or homage to the former pop king.

The song itself takes Drake into a post-breakup moment (perhaps with a certain baby momma?). He croons over the R&B track:

I can’t recover from our last conversation
You called me weak
And you tested my manhood as we yelled at each other
You wanted me to gon’ put my hands on you
Just to show you I love you
You know I can’t jeopardize both our reputations
Despite what you say

 

4. In My Feelings

The New Orleans bounce beat on this Side B track is a perfect compliment to “Nice For What”. It has classic Drake crooning over the past loves in his life, wishing them well and hoping the best for them.

Kiki, do you love me? Are you riding?
Say you’ll never ever leave from beside me
‘Cause I want ya, and I need ya
And I’m down for you always
KB, do you love me? Are you riding?
Say you’ll never ever leave from beside me
‘Cause I want ya, and I need ya
And I’m down for you always

In the mix of a 25-track album, the true hits don’t always break through right at the start. In My Feelings though, is an undeniable banger and classic Drake: vulnerable but cocky. The song also features an outro that samples Lil Wayne’s “Lollipop” and a brief skit from the show “Atlanta” which would play out well on the live stage if Drake wanted to be creative with them.

 

5. March 14th

Speaking of Drake‘s baby momma, we have to wonder whether he will perform March 14th on tour, the track that address his newborn son and relationship. The single-verse, no chorus track may not fit into the feel of Drake‘s live tour show, but it is also one of Drake‘s most personal tracks yet.

March 14th reveals a number of things about Drake‘s personal life including that he has a son he has only met once. As well, his baby momma and him don’t always see eye to eye and Drake‘s dad has never met the child at all. It feels weirdly personal for an artist who regularly spits out his emotion in each song.

Yesterday morning was crazy
I had to come to terms with the fact that it’s not a maybe
That shit is in stone, sealed and signed
She not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine
