    The ‘Take Care‘ groover and 21 Savage recently released an album titled ‘Her Loss‘ in collaboration. It has met with acclaim from music lovers, but it’s also drawn controversy and a lawsuit.

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, the mass media company Condé Nast has sued both artists for using a phony Vogue cover to promote their album, accusing them of trademark infringement.

    According to a lawsuit filed on Monday in New York federal court, the company is dragging them to court for rolling out a “deliberately deceptive” campaign “built entirely on the use of the VOGUE marks.

    The cover was one of the several spoofs that circulated leading up to the album release. Both rappers also forged fake appearances on NPR‘s Tiny Desk series and The Howard Stern Show. Condé Nast stated that they are exploiting the value of its cover without actually attaining the honor.

    What Does The Lawsuit Say?


    The complaint reads, “That Defendants would knowingly violate Condé Nast’s rights in this manner underscores the tremendous value that a cover feature in Vogue magazine carries to amplify sales of an album that was to be released days after Defendants commenced their deceptive campaign.”

    It further stated that all this “of course was Defendants’ aim.” To promote their album, the duo created and distributed free copies of fake issues of Vogue magazine.

    Nast has emphasized that “confusion among the public is unmistakable.” They also pointed out several media outlets that mistakenly reported that the duo was featured on the cover of the magazine.

    Drake’s album was recently also in the news for its lyrics where the rapper stated that Megan Thee Stallion faked her gunshot injuries.
