21 Savage says he wants Arsenal to win the Premier League in new album with Drake

The same track 'Circo Loco' samples Daft Punk’s hit anthem 'One More Time'


Words by: Billy Ward

Atlanta rapper 21 Savage has said he wants to see Arsenal FC win the Premier League title in his new collaborative album with Drake, ‘Her Loss’.

Released today, the joint project spans 16 tracks in total and includes a collaboration with Travis Scott called ‘Pussy & Millions.’ The album was originally supposed to drop October 28 but was pushed back after producer Noah “40” Shebib tested positive for COVID-19, delaying the mixing and mastering process as a result.

The album has been received well on social media so far, with some observant Arsenal fans noticing a shout-out from 21 Savage in track 9 ‘Circo Loco’. “Still gotta see the Gunners win Premier League,” he raps over a sample and vocal interpolation of Daft Punk’s hit anthem ‘One More Time‘.

Back in 2019, it was revealed that the Atlanta rapper was in fact a UK citizen after he was arrested by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) for being in the US illegally. 21 Savage – real name Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph – has been pictured wearing an Arsenal shirt in the past but the new name-drop has removed any doubt where the rapper’s allegiance lies.

Under Mikel Arteta this season, the football team has been in fine form and currently sit top of the league. Some fans online have already began to bring up the infamous ‘Drake curse’ since the album came out, which claims any team the rapper associates himself with begins to see a downwards turn in form shortly after. “Arsenal avoiding the Drake curse since 21 savage said the line,” one user wrote on Twitter.

Whether or not 21 Savage will get to see the Gunners lift the prestigious trophy this season, his new album with Drake is undeniably one of the biggest albums to drop in 2022.
