“Her Loss” can be considered the culmination of work that began in 2016 with “Sneakin.” At the time, 21 Savage was an up-and-coming rapper from Atlanta, still somewhat accustomed to neighborhood crime, but already very promising; while Drake was already a celebrity, considered the most impactful MC in the Rap world, who you could count on if you wanted to stand out.
Eight years later, the two have met “equal footing,” if you will; Savage is now a full-fledged star, and Drake still one of the most influential singers in the world.
Their latest record is the meeting of two explosive personalities, which add up to create a structured work that shows a latent quest for perfection, as Drake stated some time ago.
In the 16 tracks of “Her Loss,” the two rappers sing about their shared disdain for less established artists, as in “On BS,” “Privileged Rappers,” “Broke Boys”; exchange views on contemporary courtship in “Spin Bout U,” “Hours in Silence”; detail what life as a superstar rapper entails in “Circo Loco,” “Pussy & Millions”; or rap about how much they appreciate each other in “Treacherous Twins.”
Yes, because “Her Loss” is above all the result of a deep friendship and esteem between the two, which might initially turn some noses up at Old Skool purists, but to question it would be to willfully ignore the idea that rapping, like almost anything else, is much more fun with one’s friend in tow.
Thus continues the very prolific period of Drake’s production, who, after the release of “Certified Lover Boy,” “Honestly and Nevermind” a few months ago, had stated that he only really feels alive when he is in the recording room.
