Kendrick Lamar’s winning streak continued today when it was revealed “Humble” took the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Which is great news for the Compton rapper, but not so great for Ed Sheeran.
The U.K. singer has dominated the chart for 12 consecutive weeks with his “Shape of You” track. Some wondered if Kendrick would be the artist to dethrone Sheeran, as “Humble”—Damn’s lead single—debuted at No. 2 and fell to No. 3 in the weeks after its debut. But it looks like all the heat following Damn’s release propelled the cut to the top. And, of course, K-Dot fans responded with plenty of shade and a good amount of gloating. Sorry, Sheeran.

Kendrick’s Damn has also become the best-selling album of 2017, so far. The 14-track project debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, earning 603,000 equivalent album units in its first week. Following the news, Kendrick announced he will hit the road for a 17-date tour later this year.
