Drake and 21 Savage trolled fans with fake promos before revealing the cover art for the joint album Her Loss.
In June Drake released his house-music-inspired Honestly Nevermind album which was vastly different than his usual projects. And while the social media jury couldn’t decide if the album was good or bad, a number of people agreed that “‘Jimmy Cooks” featuring 21 Savage was a standout.
Since their first collaboration titled “Sneakin'” Drake and 21 have continuously delivered heat, and while debuting the video for “Jimmy Cooks” they announced that they were releasing a joint album titled Her Loss.
Drake & 21 Savage Troll Fans With Fake Tiny Desk and Vogue Promo, Reveal The Album Cover For Her Loss
Unfortunately Drake and 21 Savage delayed their joint album by a week but tonight the album is slated to hit streaming services everywhere. To promote the album, the duo is spoofing traditional rollouts and publicity.
On Sunday the duo revealed a fake Vogue cover and plastered it all over NYC while thanking Anna Wintour as if it was real.
Inside the “magazine”, almost every single page mocks traditional Vogue ads and features models with 21 Savage’s signature knife on their forehead.
A companion video with 21 Savage was released Wednesday featuring him spoofing Vogue’s content for “What’s In My Bag.” In the video, the rapper mocks the jokes that surfaced after ICE arrested him for overstaying his British visa.
“You can never have too much tea, you know, I like to enjoy my tea and crumpets,” says 21 in the video while pulling out a teabag.
Also in the album rollout, Drake and 21 spoofed NPR’s Tiny Desk and sent fans into a tizzy until NPR confirmed that the video was fake.
Drake & 21 Savage Spoof A Howard Stern Interview
Drake and 21 Savage also spoofed a Howard Stern interview in which Drake reveals his favorite type of porn to watch.
“Just the highest tier of top givers,” says Drake in the video. “That’s just what I’m consistently tuned into on a daily basis.”
In a second clip from the spoofed interview, Drake and 21 hilariously reflect on their origins. Drake speaks about being the biggest rapper from his country and then 21 Savage realizes he’s the biggest rapper from the UK.
Drake hilariously responds, “You’re like the pride of London.”
Drake and 21 Savage ended their night of spoofs by revealing their Her Loss’ album’s cover art.
Instantly we could tell this cover was all Drake’s idea because terrible or questionable cover art has been a staple in the Drake rollout for years. Still, his album covers always get the people going and this one is no different.
