According to several forecasts, the critically acclaimed project will stay at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart, earning an additional 233,000 equivalent album units. Damn outsold Drake’s More Life project in first-week sales, dethroning it as the highest and fastest-selling album of 2017. This, of course, led fans to pit the rappers against each other, adding fuel to beef rumors; however, Drake wants the world to know there isn’t any bad blood.
On Friday, Tidal’s editorial director Elliott Wilson posted the sales projections on Instagram, which inspired Drizzy to show Kendrick some love.
“Amazing to see our music moving!!!” Drake wrote in the comments.
So now that we know there’s no beef, fans want to know if Kendrick and Drake will ever reunite on a record. As pointed out by XXL, Drake literally liked the idea.
Elliott also posted a screenshot of a tweet that praises DJ Khaled’s “Im the One” single with Migos, Justin Bieber, Chance the Rapper, and Lil Wayne. Though it would be hard to follow up, one fan suggested a collaboration between Drake, Kendrick, and J. Cole would be even bigger. That comment appears to have been liked by Drake.
The official sales figures will be released by Billboard on Sunday.
