Drake Creates Billboard Records. Drake is no stranger to creating history. The Canadian rapper has a reputation for breaking through barriers when he first appeared on the scene in 2009. Her Loss, the joint album by Drake and 21 Savage, helped achieve another success on Monday.
Drizzy made history by holding at least eight positions in the Hot 100 top 10 concurrently on two separate occasions. His 2021 album Certified Lover Boy has several songs that are still in the top 10. Her Loss, a production with help from 21 Savage, debuted at the top of the charts. In its first week, the 16-track collaborative album sold 404,000 equivalent album units.
Her Loss had the largest hip-hop/R&B album debut week so far in 2022. Additionally, it is the fourth-biggest streaming week in album history. The highly regarded record wasn’t without controversy, though. The controversial lyrics of Drake’s song Her Loss caused a lot of controversy among listeners.
He insulted Alexis Ohanian, Serena Williams’ husband, in the song “Middle of the Ocean.” Sidebar, Serena, your husband is a groupie/He say we don’t have an issue but/No, boo, it’s like you’re comin’ for sushi, rapped The 6 God. Ohanian responded to the criticism on social media. He stated, “I’m relentless about becoming the very best at anything I do, which is why I maintain winning. Including being my wife and daughter’s best groupie.
Additionally, Megan Thee Stallion addressed any potential criticism of her in the CD. Drake rapped on Circo Loco, “This chick lying about taking injections yet she still a stallion.” Following the supposed diss, activists showed Megan a lot of love. She also gave a less-than-subtle tweet in response. She tweeted, “Stop exploiting my shooting as leverage.” Since when is it OK to make jokes about women being shot?
Drake has chosen to remain silent in reaction to the criticism.
