In an accompanying note, Drake stressed the importance of finding “your inner light” during these dire times. “When the mind starts to move into overthinking or fear, shift your attention right away to something bright,” he wrote.
“Laughter is your best medicine, but tears can also be a powerful release,” he added. “Let go of any judgment you may have around that. Remember that you are never alone, and if you need to be reminded of that ask for support and it will show up.”
Adonis is Drake’s first son, born October 11th, 2017 to the French artist Sophie Brussaux. The existence of Adonis was first revealed by Pusha-T on the diss track “The Story of Adidon”, and was later confirmed by Drake on his 2018 album, Scorpion.
On the Scorpion track “Emotionless”, Drake addressed his decision to keep his son a secret. “I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid,” he raps. He continued: “Breaking news in my life I don’t run to the blogs/ the only ones I want to tell are in my phone I can call/ They always ask, ‘Why let it run if it’s false’/ You know a wise man once said nothing at all.”
The album’s closing track, “March 14th” further saw Drake detail the unexpected pregnancy, his non-existent relationship with the child’s mother, and coming to terms with being a single father.
The photographs shared today feature not only Drake and Adonis, but also Brussaux. He closed the accompanying note by writing, “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. Until then please keep your lights on.”
“What is most important for you right now is to connect to your own inner light. This will create the biggest opening of all. Trust that you have all of the power within to make this happen, and in order to do hat connect to the people and things that bring you a lot of joy. When the mind starts to move into overthinking or fear, shift your attention right away to something bright.”
“It doesn’t matter what has happened in the past or what is happening around us now, you can always make the choice to break free of the wheel of suffering and panic and open up to your own light. We are powerful manifestors, so once you make the choice in the moment to shift your awareness to something good, it will show you in your reality.”
“Be conscious, especially right now of fears coming in from others, and recognize that not everything should be held by you. Laughter is your best medicine, but tears can also be a powerful release. Let go of any judgment you may have around that. Remember that you are never alone, and if you need to be reminded of that ask for support and it will show up. Everything comes down to intention, and even though there are conflicting energies circling around us you must KNOW…It will rebuild. But in order for that to happen, you have to do exactly that. Trust.”
“You have the biggest heart and that is your greatest gift. It’s impossible to always control your surroundings, but when you shift the focus to how you want to feel, everything will conspire to assist you. 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. Until then please keep your lights on.”
