As you guys know, I’m always here for new music from Drake. When he announced his second release of 2022 as a collaborative effort with fellow rapper, 21 Savage, the expectations ran high. After many questioned the placement of their collaboration on Honestly, Nevermind, many figured more music would come in the future. In November, the project saw the light of day on the form of Her Loss.
From the first few listens, this album feels like Drake featuring 21 Savage. Many can hear that the majority of the lyrics are performed by the former with both of the artists individually having songs on the album as well. Fans have been divided as Drake seems unapologetically aggressive on this album taking aim at many celebrities throughout the entirety of the album. At times, it feels almost unnecessary as 21 Savage’s verse on songs don’t compliment Drake’s verse as it pertains to the subject matter.
The project has great moments both collectively and individually. It’s hard to pinpoint individual tracks as the project needs to be heard in its entirety to develop an opinion. For myself, with Drake’s latest trio of albums, the music has been a rollercoaster for fans. I as many will enjoy the overall release of new music from the artist but to some he’s falling into the trap of telling his “Burn Book” of moments into some of the most unforgettable music we’ll never forget. You be the judge by listening to their new album on all music streaming services.
