Drake is not at all mad about the unmatched success Kendrick Lamar has thus far experienced with his DAMN LP.
Last week the OVO rapper’s More Life playlist was eclipsed by K. Dot’s fourth offering, as not only the No. 1 album on Billboard but the fastest and highest selling album of 2017 thus far. And by all indication, DAMN is projected to keep rolling into the new week, with industry forecasts predicting it to come in atop the Billboard 200 chart once more with 233,000 equivalent units registered.
News of the album’s success prompted Tidal executive director Elliot Wilson to post to Twitter with a chart showing DAMN’s projected numbers as they compare to More Life’s and albums by Incubus and @Guardians. The tweet apparently caught Drake’s attention, with him liking the post, and following up by commenting, “Amazing to see our music moving!!!”
