The two rappers first made their collaborative effort official in October. They also debuted a music video, for their collaborative song “Jimmy Cooks,” which is on Drake’s most recent solo album, Honestly, Nevermind. The two men were shown rapping in front of multiple screens that were illuminated with vibrant imagery of city life in the Mahfuz Sultan-directed film.
Sincerely, Nevermind moved 204,000 equivalent album units in its first week to become Drake’s 11th number-one album to appear on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Drake became the fifth artist with more than 10 No. 1 albums thanks to this accomplishment.
However, the rapper chose not to submit the album for a Grammy nomination, making this the second year in a row that he did not submit anything.

Drake had guest appearances on Metro Boomin’s Savage Mode II and “Mr. Right Now” by 21 Savage, whereas 21 Savage made a special appearance on “Knife Talk” the Certified Lover Boy song by Drake.
