Last week, drake and 21 Wild have released a visual for their latest collaboration, Jimmy Crooks, which appears on Drake’s Honestly Nevermind album. In the video, the two announced that they would be releasing an album together entitled Her Loss on October 28th.
Now it looks like fans will have to wait an extra week before experiencing the album.
On Wednesday, Drake took to his Instagram story and announced that their album will now be released on November 4 due to Noah “40” Shebib, the producer of Drake, contracting COVID-19.
“Our brother @ovo40 got sick mixing and mastering the crack so he’s resting and NOVEMBER 4TH is their losing day. We’ll see each other soon.”
When Drake and 21 Savage first announced their collaborative album, fans took to social media to share their excitement about the project.

All I ask is that Drake rap like a paranoid mob boss on this 21 Savage collab so I can forget. Honestly, Nevermind happened.

In addition to Jimmy Crooks, other collaborations by 21 Savage and Drake include Mr. Right Now, appearing on 21 Savage and Metro Boomin’s 2020 album Savage Mode II. Knife Talk is another collaboration that appeared on Drake’s highly anticipated Certified Lover Boy album, and their record Sneakin appears on Drake’s More Life album.
The announcement of their new album also came after Drake surprised fans by joining 21 Savage on stage while performing for Spelman College and Morehouse College Homecoming.
There was no word on how many songs will appear on Her Loss or if other artists will be featured in the project. However, the project is slowly being eagerly awaited.
