During an interview on SiriusXM Sound 42, the OVO boss proclaimed that Her Loss is one of the “greatest albums” he’s been a part of and believes it could even crack the top three in his decorated catalog.
“[Her Loss] is one of the greatest albums I ever made in my life,” he declared. “I said the other day, I think this is a clear entry into my top five of my catalog — if not, top three.”

Elsewhere in the interview with 21 Savage, Drake revealed that Her Loss is actually the final installment in a trilogy that includes Certified Lover Boy and Honestly, Nevermind.
“We got CLB, Certified Lover Boy, that was like the, you know, ‘I’m trying my best to make her love [me], I’m chasing you,’” he said. “And then Honestly, Nevermind is the realization that maybe that lifestyle is not for me.”
“Then Her Loss is like ‘No Pigeons,”‘ he continued. “Remember when [Sporty Thievz] dropped ‘No Pigeons’ when [TLC] had ‘No Scrubs’ out?”

The album was a collaborative creative process throughout as Drake and 21 both admitted that they helped pen some of each other’s verses.
“I ain’t gon cap, Drake wrote some of my verses on this album,” 21 said. “These facts. I don’t give a fuck what a n-gga say, Drake helped me with some of my verses on this album.”
The Toronto mogul added: “By the way, you also helped me with shit too.”
