Music creatives Drake and 21 Savage have settled with Condé Nast-owned Vogue over a fake version of the magazine the rap duo created to promote their album, Her Loss. Vogue sought $4 million in damages, however, the agreed upon settlement amount is not known.
In an internal memo first obtained by Semafor, Condé Nast general counsel Will Bowes noted the publication was granted a permanent injunction barring further commercial uses of Vogue trademarks. The amount of the settlement was described as sufficient to “bolster our ongoing creative output, including Vogue editorial.”
At the time, Vogue repeatedly asked Drake (real name Aubrey Graham) and 21 Savage (real name Shéyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph) to take down the fake cover from their social media feeds, but the duo ignored the requests.
In addition to the fake covers published on social media and street posters, Drake and 21 Savage’s team produced and distributed an altered version of Vogue’s March magazine, which originally featured Jennifer Lawrence on the cover image. Interior pages revealed on social media included ads featuring Hailey Bieber and Bella Hadid that were tagged with graffiti writing.
