In addition, Drake and 21 ousted Midnights as the top album in the United States. That album broke records upon release and is currently being heavily promoted. With Her Loss, 21 Savage and Drake are facing up against some of the biggest names in pop music. When discussing numbers, the rapper from “Bank Account” is referenced alongside Adele or John Lennon. Wild.
Despite these claims, “Her Loss” has garnered attention for much more than its viewership figures. First of all, it has some of Drake’s most well-liked rhythms and bars for fans in a long time. But a number of those bars have gotten into trouble for favoring Drizzy in particular. On “Circo Loco,” he made fun of Megan The Stallion and reneged on his reunion with Kanye West. Additionally, he rekindled his battle with D.R.A.M. and fired some jabs at Serena Williams’ husband.
