Kendrick Racks Up No. 1s by Dissing Drake

The immense numbers for “Not Like Us” were driven by it being part of Drake and Kendrick’s epic rap battle, which has included a total of 10 songs so far. All eyes and ears have been on the two rappers for the past several weeks since K-Dot dissed Drake in March on the song “Like That.” The beef reached a fever pitch from May 3 to May 5, as both rappers released back-to-back vitriolic disses and had the internet going nuts.

This is the second No. 1 for K-Dot in 2024 and both songs have been disses aimed at Drake. Last month, Future and Metro Boomin’s “Like That” featuring Kendrick debuted at No. 1. The song topped the chart for three weeks before being overtaken by Hozier’s “Too Sweet.” This is Kendrick’s fourth No. 1 song including “Humble” and “Bad Blood” with Taylor Swift.
