The tried-and-true formula yielding Drake’s solo records has dominated the mainstream media circuit for well over a decade now, reinforcing the “ain’t broke, don’t fix” mentality that has made him an unfathomably successful man. Of course, this is all to the delight of many, and the dismay of many others, with heels digging further in on either side of rap’s most popular and polarizing figure. With two 2022 records now under Drake’s belt, it’s apparent any adjustments he’s made to his formula are purely cosmetic. While that’s not to say collaborating with 21 Savage wasn’t a shrewd identification of their potential for chemistry and contrast, it is consistent with the comfort zone Drake has always operated within. – DeVán (7/10)

Her Loss doesn't bring anything unique. It's still an enjoyable pop rap album, but that's it. There are some highlights like “On BS,” “Pussy & Millions,” “BackOutsideBoyz,” but there are also awful tracks, like “Hours in Silence.” I wish 21 Savage had more space to shine, because it feels more like a Drake solo project with a bunch of 21 Savage features. – @casper.rap (7/10)

Some tremendous highs and some unignorable lows. Drake seems more energized than usual but still the inconsistency makes this a clunky listen. Whilst he might be sounding hungrier, his persona continues to be less and less likable and tolerable as the years go on. – @andre_vital_pardue (5.8/10)
