It’s the moment everyone has been waiting for. After trolling fans with fake NPR Tiny Desk concerts and faux Vogue magazine covers, Drake and 21 Savage are officially releasing their long-awaited joint project, “Her Loss.”
Originally scheduled for an October 28 release, the album was pushed back due to Drake’s longtime producer Noah “40” Shebib contracting COVID. However, fans don’t have to wait any longer. The “Jimmy Crooks” collaborators are dropping the project at midnight on Nov. 4.
While the content on the album are definitely a topic of discussion, the album’s cover has been causing quite a conversation as well. On Nov. 2, Drake debuted the front cover on his Instagram page. The cover featured the image of a woman with two gold teeth, long wispy lashes, and perfectly laid baby hair. Many wanted to know who she was and how she became the face of the two legends’ rap project.
According to Complex, the image used for “Her Loss” is around three years old. As for how it was selected, photographer Paris Arden told the outlet that the OVO team reached out to her randomly to ask if they could use it.
“Drake just saw the photo I guess, and they asked if they could use it for the album,” he explained. “I shot that s*** a long timeago. It was her profile pic and he probably fell in love with what he seen.”
We were able to gather some information about the woman on the cover and she’s as interesting as she is fabulous.
