Draje outperforms Kendrick Lamar

Canadian rap star Drake got himself the top spot with his song Push Ups. Outperforming Kendrick Lamar’s Like That.

Entertainment commentator Phil Mphela revealed that Push Ups debuted at number six on the South African Top 200 International chart. Meanwhile, Like That, by rapper Future and Metro Boomin featuring Kendrick Lamar, is at number 12.

“Drake beats Kendrick in Mzansi streams. Drake’s ‘Push Ups’ diss track debuted at number 6 on the South African Top 200 International chart in last week’s overall streaming chart from across Digital Service Providers (DSP).

“Lamar’s “Like That” occupied the number 12 spot, having peaked at number 6 back in mid-April. Will Lamar’s most lauded track ‘Euphoria’ shake the numbers this week? The song broke the single-day streaming record for a hip hop song in 2024 state-side but is yet to crack Mzansi’s list.”

Mzansi slams Phil Mphela

Passionate hip hop fans slammed Phil Mphela as they felt as though his reporting was biased. However, many failed to see that Mphela reported on the overall figures across various streaming platforms.

“The tweet clearly says OVERALL AND ACROSS ALL DSPs. That means The Official South African Charts combines all streaming numbers from various DSPs (which means streaming platforms) to curate a collective tally. Just because a song is number one on Apple or Spotify does not mean cumulatively it is the most streamed.”

Even after correcting himself, Mzansi reckons that Kendrick has the better numbers.

Drake seemingly responds to Kendrick Lamar

TheTalk.NG previously reported that word on the street was that Drake may have heard Kendrick Lamar’s diss on Like That and decided to address it.

While on tour, Drizzy took some time mid-performance to help fans understand his state of mind, seemingly shrugging the disses and moving on.

While in the middle of a tour, Drake fans and hip-hop heads at large received a rude awakening with the release of Future and Metro Boomin’s joint project, We Don’t Trust You. In the 17-track album is a song, Like That, which has been making waves on the internet and features Kendrick Lamar, who took shots at Drake and J. Cole.
