Drake, 21 Savage Settle ‘Her Loss’ Promo Lawsuit

The lawsuit involved a fake Vogue magazine cover.

Drake and 21 Savage’s legal battle with Condé Nast is reportedly ending.

Semafor reports that the publisher reached a settlement with the pair of rappers this week, more than three months after it sued the duo over a fake Vogue cover they created. Via an internal memo released on Thursday (February 16), Condé Nast announced the news, saying they had secured a permanent injunction prohibiting the use of Vogue’s trademark for commercial purposes.

“As a creative company, we of course understand our brands may from time to time be referenced in other creative works,” Condé Nast general counsel Will Bowes wrote. “In this instance, however, it was clear to us that Drake and 21 Savage leveraged Vogue’s reputation for their own commercial purposes and, in the process, confused audiences who trust Vogue as the authoritative voice on fashion and culture.”

The details of the agreement have not yet been confirmed, however the memo indicates that the plaintiffs received a monetary settlement that will benefit their “ongoing creative output, including Vogue editorial.”

Originally, the lawsuit was filed in early November after the Her Loss rappers shared a fake October 2022 issue of Vogue with their images on the cover and pages within. The promo attempt was one of several the duo did for their album.
