Since Kendrick Lamar’s Battle With Drake, Fans Have Stated ‘Damn’ As Previous Album Soars On The Billboard Charts

Many hip-hop fans have claimed Kendrick Lamar is the winner amid his lyrical battle with Drake. Yet, despite the opinion of those watching, Drake is a winner on the Billboard charts because of the beef with his Canadian rhymesayer.

According to Forbes, since the two recording artists traded barbs with each other, the fans have been tuning in over the war of words and taking their interest to the music charts. Music fans have been listening to more Kendrick songs over the course and in the aftermath of the lyrical sword fight. Sales and streaming numbers for the “Humble” lyricist have increased and set a new high on a Billboard chart for one of his previous albums.

On a new chart that Billboard recently introduced, his 2017 album, Damn has reached new heights on the current week’s Top Streaming Albums chart. The chart is a weekly ranking of the country’s most-streamed full-length albums.

The album came in at No. 36 up from his previous high on the charts at No. 44, making his album a Top 40 entry. He had another project, Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City, released in 2012 on the list at 47 before the Damn album moved its way past that entry.

Damn also jumped up on the Billboard 200 chart by elevating from No. 49 to No. 41. The numbers went up almost 6% when it moved an additional 18,370 equivalent units, according to Luminate. But, that’s not all. The album returned to the top ten of the Top Rap Albums chart when it rose from No. 14 to No. 9, while also moving up on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums list when it jumped from No. 19 to No. 12.

Apparently, the battle may be officially over, according to XXL.

In an Instagram Story entry by Drake, he wrote, “Good times. Summer vibes up next” possibly eluding to him bowing out to maybe work on the next project.

Also, a post on X by Top Dawg Entertainment, the label that released previous projects by Kendrick called the battle over, while promising a celebration of 20 years of TDE.
