Following a cycle of fake promotional stunts, Drake and 21 Savage gifted fans with their much-anticipated joint album, Her Loss. As with previous Drake efforts, this project immediately caused a stir on social media, but not necessarily for the right reasons. 

Since the album’s release on Friday, Drake has faced mounting backlash over “Circo Loco,”Boi-1da- and Tay Keith- produced cut that has been called confusing, petty, and down right misogynistic. The controversy stems from the track’s opening verse, in which Drake appears to reference Megan Thee Stallion and her 2020 shooting incident involving Tory Lanez. 

The lyrics have ignited a debate about Drake’s intentions, and have prompted responses from fans and entertainment figures, including Megan. For those who aren’t update to date on the drama—or simply want a refresher—we’ve provided a thorough rundown of all the “Circo Loco” controversy below.
