Drake and 21: memorable and unique

Drake and 21: memorable and unique

Nick Christoforos

The new album by Drake and 21 Savage introduces itself to listeners all around the world. Drake somehow manages to release underwhelming tracks at an impressive rate. Drake enjoys working with the Atlanta rapper 21 Savage. 

Both of them decided to collaborate when Drake started to strategize his own career differently than he normally would. So he started warming up to the idea of making different music and instead of focusing on his old albums and trying attempting to please all of his fans at once. 

Drake just did what he wanted– regardless of carrying about if the feedback is good or bad. 

Jake Woods, fan of Drake, states,“Drake finally took some big risks and focused on one cohesive sound.” The album was announced just six hours before its release. It was light on features and more musically cohesive than anything he’s put out in a long time. Fans really need more of this side of Drake.” 

The album’s diversity and the woman on the cover has everyone confused. Drake and 21 shared the image of the album without any context, other than describing the image as the “front cover” of Her Loss. The shot immediately confused fans, with many asking who the mystery woman is and why she’s on the cover. Drake and 21 just wanted to throw fans off. 

Fans had different opinions on the songs because of how they sounded. 

Jessica McKinney, fan of Drake, states, “Sticky” and “Liability” are tied for me. “Sticky” is the more uptempo track that gives Drake a chance to try a more playful delivery, while “Liability” is a chopped-up, distorted cut that sounds ideal for a late-night cruise.”  

In the song “Circo Loco,” there was a lyric about former female artist Megan Thee Stallion. “This [l]ie ’bout gettin shots but she still a stallion.” She later shared a graphic photo of her gunshot wound in response to critics who accused her of lying about the incident.

“Why would I lie about being shot?” Stallion wrote.  I wonder if it’s because of the way I look. Is it because I’m not light enough? Is it that I’m not white enough? Am I not the shape? The height? Because I’m not petite?” she went on. “Do I not seem like I’m worth being treated like a woman?”
