Drake Reportedly Announces Release Date Of New Collaboration ‘Her Loss’ With Savage
24th October 2022

Canadian rapper, singer, and actor Drake and 21 Savage are dropping a joint album.

The Grammy-winning rappers announced the news in Drizzy’s newly released video for “Jimmy Cooks,” a 21-assisted track that appeared on Honestly, Nevermind. Drake’s distribution label, Republic Records, also confirmed the drop via Twitter, sharing a screenshot of the project’s title and its Oct. 28 release date, per Complex.

Drake and 21 have teamed up on a number of records, including the former’s “Knife Talk,” as well as “Sneakin’,” “Issa,” and “Mr. Right Now.” They also reunited during this week’s Morehouse-Spelman homecoming concert, where 21 brought out Drake as a surprise guest.

The date and title were first revealed in the new music video for “Jimmy Cooks,” the pair’s collaboration on Drake’s previous album “Honestly, Nevermind,” which was released only four months ago.

After Drake announced that the “Jimmy Cooks” music video would drop on 21’s 30th birthday, online speculation about a joint album gained momentum. Drake also surprised fans Wednesday, appearing unannounced at a 21 Savage concert in Atlanta, according to Variety.

Drake and 21 have become regular collaborators over the years, with songs like “Knife Talk,” off Drake’s album “Certified Lover Boy,” and “Mr. Right Now,” off 21 and Metro Boomin’s album “Savage Mode II.” Other tracks include “Sneakin’” and “Issa.”

In the years following their first collaboration, 21 has continued to recognize Drake’s contributions to hip-hop. Though he told GQ he doesn’t necessarily look up to anyone in the game, he said Drake was the closest thing he had to a mentor.

“Drake just a genuine-ass good-hearted person,” he said in 2018. “He did a lot of shit he didn’t have to do. He do a lot of shit for up-and-coming rappers, period. I don’t think he get his respect for that. Every fuckin’ year, he pull a new artist up. Ain’t no other artist on his level do that shit.”

Her Loss will mark 21’s first full-length release since 2020’s Savage Mode II with Metro Boomin. The two also teamed up on 2016’s Savage Mode and 2017’s Without Warning with Offset. Drake, on the other hand, has only released one joint project during his career: 2015’s What a Time to Be Alive with Future.

In 2022, both rappers saw massive consumption numbers for songs on which they appear. Drake is featured alongside Tems on Future’s “Wait For U” (3.1 million song equivalent units, per Luminate) and 21 Savage is featured on “Knife Talk” along with Project Pat (closing in on 2 million song equivalent units).

The name “Jimmy Cooks” seemingly nods to Drake’s character in “Degrassi: The Next Generation,” Jimmy Brooks, a role Drake held for nearly eight years on the Canadian series. The song, Drake and 21 Savage’s fourth recorded pairing, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

21 Savage has racked up a slew of features this year. He can be heard on Latto’s “Wheelie,” J.I.D.’s

“Surround Sound,” Shenseea’s “R U That” and alongside Pharrell Williams and Tyler the Creator on “Cash In Cash Out.”
