NEW YORK, Aug. 28 (UPI) -- The image of a child on Drake's new album, "Nothing Was the Same," is not Blue Ivy Carter, the toddler daughter of U.S. singers Jay Z and Beyonce.

The image created by artist Kadir Nelson shows Drake facing a young African-American child with an Afro. The unveiling of the cover prompted speculation on Twitter about the child's identity, UsMagazine.com reported.

"Why is Blue Ivy on Drake's album cover?" one fan tweeted.

"Drake put Blue Ivy Carter on his new album art #notmad," another person wrote on Twitter.

"It's a child version of myself staring at myself now," Drake told MTV.

"Sometimes when I try and think back on this journey, it's so hard to pinpoint all of these moments and it gets foggy," the 26-year-old rapper explained. "What that album art is to me is, like, 'This is my most clean, concise thoughts from now, and my best recollection of then.' That's really what that cover's about."
