Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Not Like Us’ Diss Track Tops the Billboard Hot 100

Kendrick Lamar appears to be winning his epic rap battle against Drake – at least according to the latest Billboard Hot 100.

His song “Not Like Us” debuts at No. 1 on the latest chart with another one of his diss tracks, “Euphoria,” jumping from No. 11 to No. 3 in its second week on the chart.

In addition, “Like That,” his collaboration with Future and Metro Boomin that topped the chart for three weeks, is back up from No. 8 to No. 6.

Drake’s latest salvo in the beef, “Family Matters,” enters the chart at No. 7.

The rap battle heated up in March with the release of “Like That,” which took apparent shots at Drake and J. Cole, although the bad blood between Lamar and Drake dates back more than 10 years.  Though Lamar and Drake and the primary players in the feud, others who have been dragged into the beef — or who have willingly participated — include Rick Ross, The Weekend, Kanye West and A$AP Rocky.

According to Billboard, “Not Like Us” debuted with more than 70.9 million official streams, 5 million audience impressions and sales of 15,000 units in the U.S. for the week ending May 9, although it wasn’t released until May 5, two days into the track week for the latest chart.

This is Lamar’s fourth Hot 100 chart-topper and second No. 1 linked to the beef with Drake. His other chart-toppers are “Humble,” which hit the top spot during the week of May 6, 2017, while he first hit No. 1 with “Bad Blood,” the Taylor Swift track on which he was featured on, which hit the top of the Hot 100 during the week of June 6, 2015.

“Not Like Us” also debuted at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs, Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts.

Meanwhile, “Euphoria” racked up 49 million streams, 1.9 million in airplay audience and sold 7,000 units.
