Drake is no stranger to peculiar album artwork (just look at the Certified Lover Boy cover), but the imagery for his new collab album with 21 Savage, Her Loss, might be his most unique yet. The cover, shot by Houston-based photographer Paris Aden, features a close-up shot of a young woman grilling the camera with jewelry in her mouth and colorful eyelashes. Drake and 21 shared the image without any context, other than describing the image as the “front cover” of Her Loss. The shot immediately confused fans, with many asking who the mystery woman is and why she’s on the cover.
We immediately started investigating online to find answers. Fortunately, we stumbled on some bread crumbs that led us to answers about who the mysterious woman is: Qui Yasuka, aka Suki Baby, a nail stylist and professional adult dancer based in Houston. Suki revealed a lot about herself on Gulniyal’s gtalks! podcast about a year ago when talking about her personal interests, which left some clues about why Drake and 21 wanted her to be on the album cover. We also got in touch with the photographer for some more information about how this all came together.
Here’s everything we know about the woman on Drake and 21 Savage’s Her Loss album cover.
