The two first linked up back in 2016 on the track, Sneakin, and since then, they have gotten together on multiple tracks to prove their differentiating rap tones complement each other unbelievably. The two worked together again on Mr. Right Now off of Savage's 2020 album Savage Mode 2 and again on Knife Talk from Drakes' Certified Lover Boy and Jimmy Cooks on Drakes' most recent album, Honestly, Nevermind.

However, Champagne Papi took to his Instagram story to announce the upcoming joint album will be delayed by a few days! Why? Well, according to the Nonstop artist, his longtime producer, Noah "40" Shebib, recently became infected with COVID while finishing off the album, causing a delay in the drop date. But don't worry too much, everyone; Her Loss is only being pushed back a week and is expected to drop on November 4. So stay tuned for what has the potential to be one of the greatest collaborations of the year...
