Drake is the world’s most-streamed artist by a long shot, so there’s really no reason to assume he’s going to block another rapper’s shine when they excel.
Flying in the face of a rivalry that a drama-thirsty culture is dying to see, the Canadian superstar took to Instagram this weekend to congratulate Kendrick on beating the sales for More Life.
Drizzy commented beneath a photo of a tweet that specifically showed the details of how DAMN. had overtaken More Life for a second week with a magnanimous “Amazing to see our music moving!!!” alongside plenty of prayer emojis for good measure.

In its first week, Kendrick’s DAMN. officially sold a breathtaking 603,000 copies, with 353,000 of those being traditional sales. The figures trumped Drake’s impressive opening week sales of 505,000 by just short of 100,000.
Will this be enough to silence the rumors that the two have some kind of beef under the scenes? Probably not, but it’s a step in the right direction.
