INDIO, CALIFORNIA - APRIL 16: 21 Savage performs at the Sahara Tent at 2022 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival weekend 1 - day 2 on April 16, 2022 in Indio, California.

If you’re trying to create a fire song, you might want to give 21 Savage a call. 21 Savage has proven that he’s a great collaborator, team player, and dynamic lyricist over the years. He has a few songs where he is the lead artist and has proven that he can carry his own, but when it’s time for 21 to tap in on a collab, he’s fired up and ready to go.

Project Collaborations

21 Savage has collaborated with superstar producer Metro Boomin twice and with Drake once on their collab album Her Loss.

Metro Boomin and 21’s project Savage Mode was released in 2016, which contained a solo feature from Future (“X”). The EP was released a year before 21’s debut album Issa Album. The duo followed up with a Savage Mode II in 2020. It had guest appearances by Drake, Young Thug, and Young Nudy. The project debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

21’s latest album collaboration was with Drake for Her Loss. The duo announced the project last October when they initially told fans that a music video to their “Jimmy Cooks” would drop. While they fulfilled that promise, halfway through the music video, it is revealed that their collab album Her Loss was to drop on October 28, 2022. It eventually got delayed due to Drake’s longtime producer Noah “40” Shehib contracting COVID-19, and was released on Nov. 4.

Her Loss was worth the wait, as the album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, and all 16 tracks made the Billboard Hot 100. Her Loss is the Toronto rapper’s 12th No. 1 and the third leader for 21 Savage. The duo later announced the It’s All A Blur Tour, which hit several states such as New York, Los Angeles, Boston, as well as Drake’s home country of Canada. The tour wrapped earlier this month.

Take a look at eight of 21 Savage’s best collaborations below:

  • 10. "Bartier Cardi" - Cardi B ft. 21 Savage, 'Invasion of Privacy' (2017)

    Cardi B enlisted 21 Savage for “Bartier Cardi.” 21 delivered a smooth verse, but his adlibs were a necessity to the record as it added an extra boost of energy to Cardi’s flow. The song peaked at No. 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 and stayed on the chart for 20 Weeks.

    21’s best line: “Told the waitress, I ain’t tippin’/ I like hot sauce on my chicken (On God)”

  • 9. "Spin Bout U" Drake & 21 Savage 'Her Loss' (2022)

    21 starts off “Spin Bout U” which samples B.G.O.T.I.’s 1995 hit song “Give Me Your Lov-N.” The Atlanta native raps about how he’s into his girl and will take the necessary precautions to keep her — even if that means killing off other men interested in her. The song debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100. It stayed on the chart for 29 weeks.

    21’s best line: “F— your main pagе, what’s your Finsta? I wanna know the real you.”

  • 8. "Surround Sound" J.I.D ft. 21 Savage and Baby Tate (2021)

    J.I.D. enlisted 21 Savage and Baby Tate on his “Surround Sound.” 21 projects his infamous calm flow on the record, a contrast to J.I.D.’s rapid-fire rhymes. The record is the first time all three artists have collaborated together. The song is certified platinum by the RIAA.

    21’s best line: “We call him Mickey, he talks to the cops.”

  • 7. "Creepin'" Metro Boomin, The Weeknd, 21 Savage, 'Heroes & Villains' (2022)

    Metro Boomin tapped in The Weeknd and 21 Savage for “Creepin” for his 2022 album Heroes & Villains. It was the lead single for the album and samples Mario Winans featuring Enya and P. Diddy’s “I Don’t Wanna Know.” Diddy later appeared on the remix of the song. 21’s verse gets into how he built a girl up by buying her luxury items and taking her to fancy places, only to be let down. The addition of 21’s verse switches up the melancholy production and smooth notes from The Weeknd, giving listeners a different sound to the record. The song is now certified two times platinum by the RIAA.

    21’s best line: How you go from housewife to a sneaky link?

  • 6. "Knife Talk" Drake ft. Project Pat and 21 Savage, 'Certified Lover Boy' (2021)

    After Project Pat’s dynamic intro on “Knife Talk,” 21 Savage comes in blazing with his verse. The Atlanta native raps about his guns and how he does not play around with people messing with him. Following 21’s verse on “Knife Talk,” Drake finishes the song. The song peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, and it stayed on the chart for 29 weeks.

    21’s best line: “We done baptized more n—– than a damn reverend.”

  • 5. "Mr. Right Now" 21 Savage & Metro Boomin Featuring Drake

    21 has made collaboration albums with both artists and this collaboration was a no-brainer since all three work so well together. 21 is the lead artist on “Mr. Right Now” with Drake and Metro handles the production. In the song, 21 is telling a woman he’s interested in that he might not be the one for her in the long run but he’s good for right now. The song peaked at No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and it stayed for 18 weeks.

    21’s best line: “I ain’t Mr. Right, but I’m Mr. Right Now (21)”

  • 4. "Rich Flex" Drake & 21 Savage, 'Her Loss' (2022)

    “Do your thing 21, do your thing,” Drake raps before 21 begins his verse on the record. He does just as the song says, bragging about his expensive taste before he raps about how he wants his girl to act. “Rich Flex” was the highest charting song off of Drake and 21’s joint album Her Loss. It debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100.

    21’s best line: “Don’t call me on Christmas Eve, bitch, call your daddy (21)/Bitch, call your uncle (21), bitch, don’t call me (21)”

  • 3. "Jimmy Cooks" Drake ft. 21 Savage 'Honestly, Nevermind' (2022)

    While Drake was experimenting with house music on Honestly, Nevermind, 21 brought him back with their rap collab “Jimmy Cooks.” It is the only non-house music inspired track on the album. It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot, making it the second time 21 has had a chart leader. The song was also used as an announcement for their joint album Her Loss. While “Jimmy Cooks” was not the first time the two have collabed, it made everyone hungry for a joint project between the two.

    21’s best line: “Big stepper, he came in a Rolls, but he left in a stretcher (21)/Let my brother drive while I shoot, team effort (21)”

  • 2. "" J. Cole ft. Morray and 21 Savage 'The Off-Season' (2021)

    J. Cole tapped in 21 Savage and Morray for “my. life” while they rap about their come-ups and how life used to be for them. 21 Savage gets vulnerable in his lines as he talks about growing up without his father but also how the streets have affected his life. “my. life” debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. The record was nominated for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards.

    21’s best line: “If you betray me, you dead to me (21)/I disrespect you respectfully (Straight up)”

  • 1. "Rockstar" Post Malone ft. 21 Savage 'Beerbongs & Bentleys' (2018)

    While it was the first time Post Malone and 21 Savage worked together, but they created pure magic. There was no way you did not hear “Rockstar” everywhere you went in 2018.

    The record stayed at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for eight weeks. In total, the song stayed for 41 weeks on the chart. “Rockstar” was named the Best Rap Song at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards.
