The fan theory has been proven correct and Drake’s recent drops were all a part of a larger plan. Drizzy confirmed that his joint album with 21 Savage, Her Loss, closes out the trilogy that started with Certified Lover Boy and then Honestly, Nevermind. The albums are said to show the beginning and aftermath of a relationship.
“We got CLB, Certified Lover Boy, that was like the, you know, ‘I’m trying my best to make her love [me], I’m chasing you,'” he said in an interview clip that has been circulated on social media. “And then Honestly, Nevermind is the realization that maybe that lifestyle is not for me.”
“Then Her Loss is like ‘No Pigeons,'” he continued. “Remember when [Sporty Thievz] dropped ‘No Pigeons’ when [TLC] had ‘No Scrubs’ out?”
Finally, he says, “Then ‘Her Loss’ is like ‘No Pigeons.'”
In the same interview, he declared that Her Loss is a classic. “[Her Loss] is one of the greatest albums I ever made in my life,” he stated. “I said the other day, I think this is a clear entry into my top five of my catalog — if not, top three.”
In the same interview, both Drake and 21 admitted to helping each other with writing their verses for Her Loss.
“I ain’t gon cap, Drake wrote some of my verses on this album,” 21 said. “These facts. I don’t give a f— what a n—- say, Drake helped me with some of my verses on this album.”
Drake added: “By the way, you also helped me with s— too.”
Her Loss was released on Nov. 4 and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Her Loss is the 12th No. 1 for Drake and the third leader for 21 Savage. All songs off of the album charted on the Billboard Hot 100 with eight making it to the top 10. The 16-track project has only one guest feature as Travis Scott lent his vocals on “P—-y & Millions,” the tenth track on the LP.
