Drake and 21 Savage released a new album called, “Her Loss“ on November 4, 2022. Travis Scott also contributed to the album by his feature in one of the songs. It can be streamed on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, Pandora, and Deezer. The album is currently tied with Jay-Z for the number 1 R&B/Hip-Hop album. 

The speed in which this album was released is impressive because 16 songs were able to be written and produced by November 4, even though Drake’s last album, “Honestly, Nvm“ was released on June 17, 2022. 

The most popular song on the album is, “Rich Flex“. This is my favorite song because the catchy beat of the song puts you in a good mood. It has been streamed 134,168,686 times on Spotify, and it is his number one hit. Another successful song is,  “Major Distribution“ and it has gotten a lot of attention, and is fun to listen to with friends. It is also ranked 4th out of Drake’s songs.

The album also stands out because of the album cover. It is a photo of Qui Yasuka (Suki Baby) which was chosen by Lil Yachty because he found it “authentic“.

Drake’s three most recent album names also have a theme going from obsessing over a girl, (Certified Lover Boy), to going through a break up (Honestly, Nvm), and then getting over the girl (Her Loss). So while the album has been a success, fans have also been obsessing over Drake’s potential and ex love interests. Multiple comments have been left in the comment sections of these girl’s because people aren’t buying it when Drake says that his albums aren’t directed towards anyone. 

This album has been greatly talked about. It even made an appearance on TikTok where fans use the different Drake album names (Certified Lover Boy, Honestly, Nvm, and Her Loss) to describe different phases of their love life which indirectly helped promote his music.
