DAMN, the critically acclaimed album of rapper Kendrick Lamar, is spending it’s second week dominating the Billboard charts. The album reigns supreme on the Hot 200 Albums chart and every song on the album has hit the Hot 100 Songs chart as well.
The Compton emcee beat out Toronto’s own Drake for the top spot. Drake is still the most streamed rapper in the world, but DAMN is the biggest debut of 2017.
Despite being beaten out for his album “More Life,” Drake commented on an Instagram photo that detailed the sales numbers of the top albums.

The comment, “Amazing to see our music moving!!!” has a very subliminal “congratulations” to Kendrick and stands at odds with the rumors about beef between the two top-tier artists. Some even speculated that Kendrick’s single “The Heart part IV” – which kicked off the Kendrick mania of 2017 – was directed at Drake in certain lines.
Either way, it looks like Drizzy is still happy with where things are at.
