Due to strong sales, the Her Loss album by Drake and 21 Savage arrived at the top of this week’s Billboard 200 chart.

In a chorus of praise and controversies, the couple last Friday (November 4) debuted their first joint work. While the album received a lot of positive feedback from fans, some of Drizzy’s lyrics caused some minor controversy.

Her Loss sold 411,000 equivalent units in its first week, earning it the top spot on the album chart, according to HITS Daily Double.

According to reports, one of the largest streaming weeks ever resulted from Drake and 21’s collaborative album, bringing in almost 500 million. Drake has topped the Billboard 200 twice this year. His seventh studio album, Honestly, Nevermind, was released in June.

Drake had a lot to say on Her Loss, including calling Serena Williams’ husband Alexis Ohanian a “groupie,” reportedly dissing “Munch” star Ice Spice, and making subtle jabs at DRAM over their 2015 song dispute.

By implying that Kanye West and Drizzy’s reconciliation in 2021 was nothing more than a favor for CEO of Rap-A-Lot Records J. Prince, Drizzy even threatened to rekindle their feud.

But one of the album’s most contentious moments was when Drake seemed to imply that Megan Thee Stallion had lied about Tory Lanez shooting her. On “Circo Loco,” he raps, “This bitch lie about getting shots, but she still she a stallion/ She don’t even grasp the joke, yet she still smiling.”

Drake’s lyrics prompted Megan to respond with a series of tweets criticizing him and other rappers for using her trauma as fodder for jokes and influence.

Lil Yachty claims that the songs weren’t about Megan, though. He said that they were instead intended for women who get butt injections and implants.

Lil Yachty claimed during an IG Live, “I’mma clear this line up cuz I know Drake’s not going to do it.” Had no connection to Megan. Women simply lie about having a real butt when they don’t. Additionally, think of “stallion” as in “she’s still OK.” such as a stallion! It ended there.

In reaction to the social media rumor that Drizzy made comments against the Houston Hottie, more than a dozen famous people showed their support for her.

The Southern Black Girls & Women’s Consortium published an open letter on Friday, November 11, that was signed by both men and women, including Tarana Burke, the founder of “me too” International, Tamika D. Mallory of Until Freedom, political analyst Angela Rye, writer Mark Lamont Hill, Texas congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, and congresswoman Maxine Waters.

21 Savage claims that he played a role in some of Drake’s criticism of Her Loss.

On the Off the Record podcast hosted by DJ Akademiks, he discussed how he urged Drizzy to let the proverbial chopper fly.

I pointed out what I heard in the songs when he emailed them to me and told him, “Yeah, n-gga. Speak that stuff, 21 said. “I’m gassing him, as you know. I’m following him. I’m standing on the same thing that he is. So, n-gga, express yourself freely since I’m riding.
