Kendrick Lamar has broken yet another record of Drake‘s amid their lyrical battle, with “Not Like Us” now surpassing a streaming milestone previously set by 2018’s “God’s Plan.”

According to a post from Chart Data on Tuesday (May 14), the Mustard-produced diss record became the fastest song in Hip Hop history to reach 100 million streams on Spotify – a record Drizzy previously held with the Scorpion cut.

Both rappers are taking over the Billboard Hot 100 with their feud.

In the new chart released on Monday (May 13), “Not Like Us” premiered at No. 1., followed by his earlier diss “Euphoria” at No. 3 for its second week on the chart and the song that started it all, Metro Boomin and Future‘s “Like That,” at No. 6.

And for Drake, his Kendrick diss “Family Matters” has entered the chart at No. 7.

Reacting to the No. 1, Mustard rejoiced in being back on top and declared the city of Los Angeles “back up.”
