The new album Her Loss gave fans what they’ve long awaited for. Well, at least most fans. Drake and 21 Savage are now facing a lawsuit with Vogue magazine. The publisher, Condé Nast, has filed a $4 million lawsuit against the two rappers.
According to TMZ, Drake and 21 Savage have used Vogue’s cover to promote their latest album, Her Loss. With the editing skills their teams bring together it brought to life a believable cover. While media outlets reported the issue and Vogue filed against the two.
The complaint was filed Monday in a Manhattan federal court.
Condé Nast claims the magazine’s efforts and quote, “have not endorsed [”Her Loss”] in any way.” Also say Vogue has asked multiple times for all the promos to be taken down, but nothing has been done.
The faux magazine cover went viral on social media, posters were put out in major cities, and mass emails were sent out. The new album Her Loss is put together of 16 songs that truly proved the rap stars still got it. The album is so right, however, the faux magazine cover did Vogue dirty.
In addition to Vogue speaking on the issue, “The Howard Stern Show” and “NPRs Tiny Desk” took it to the media. The two outlets were blindly surprised and felt the whole issue was a bit funny.
Drake even tweeted along with the cover image, “Me and my brother on newsstands tomorrow!!! Thanks @voguemagazine and Anna Wintour for the love and support on this historic moment.”
It Never Ends
The lawsuit all started with a cease back in October demanding the two to stop. Ever since the issue has not been addressed. While the magazine is continuing to handle this professionally, the magazine is not going to let this slide so smoothly.
The problem according to Nast is that Drake and 21 Savage have gone so far as to distribute copies of something the magazine has worked so hard in creating a name and brand for themselves.
Many news outlets have reached out to Drake and 21 Savage, but no one has answered. Time will tell how the two rappers will handle this situation.
