Drake Unfollows Metro Boomin Amid ‘Her Loss’ Comments

This unfollow comes after Metro Boomin’s comments over the weekend that compared his Heroes & Villains to Drake and 21 Savage’s Her Loss. The record producer seemed frustrated that the latter album was getting all the accolades while his album also performed well this year.
In a since-deleted tweet, Metro responded to a tweet that was comparing the streaming numbers of Her Loss and his 2022 album Heroes & Villains. According to the tweet, Heroes & Villains has twice the amount of streaming numbers daily compared to Her Loss. In addition, the tweet claimed that Heroes & Villains had the most streams (3.7 billion) of any other rap album since 2018. Looking at the data behind Heroes & Villians seemingly struck a nerve with the producer, prompting him to tweet.
“Yet Her Loss keeps winning rap album of the year over H&V,” Metro wrote in a since-deleted tweet. “Proof that award shows are just politics and not for me. Idc about awards honestly, the true award and REWARD is knowing that the music I spend so much time on brings joy to people’s everyday lives.”
Drake Seemingly Responds To Metro Boomin’s Tweet
Drake went to his Instagram Story on Sunday (Dec. 3) to seemingly respond to the shade.
“Damn. little mans, I’m just tryin’ to do me/ If the record’s two mil, I’m just tryin’ to move three,” Drizzy wrote quoting Jay-Z’s 2001 song “Heart of the City (Ain’t No Love).”

While Metro expressed how he felt about the comparison of the two albums, he is also featured on Her Loss. The St. Louis native produced “More M’s” on the 2022 project. That wasn’t the first time that they worked together, either. The two worked together on “Jumpman,” which also enlists Future, from their 2015 joint project What a Time to Be Alive and “Knife Talk” with Project Pat and 21 Savage from Certified Lover Boy.
Metro has not responded to Drake unfollowing him on Instagram.
