Drake’s track “Push-Ups” has recently crossed the impressive milestone of 100 million streams on Spotify. This achievement is particularly notable within the context of Drake’s ongoing rivalry with Kendrick Lamar, which has significantly boosted their commercial success. The feud has resulted in numerous top 10 hits and even a few number ones. Notably, “First Person Shooter” and “Like That,” the two songs that initially fueled the beef, both debuted at the top spot on the Hot 100. “First Person Shooter” spent several weeks at number one and remains just outside the top 10 on this week’s chart. Additionally, songs like “Euphoria,” “meet the grahams,” “Family Matters,” and “Push-Ups” are still present on the Hot 100, with “Push-Ups” hitting a new milestone this week.

“Push-Ups” peaked at number 17 on the Hot 100 and currently sits at number 74 in its fifth week. Besides its chart performance, the song has garnered significant streaming numbers, recently becoming Drake’s latest song to hit 100 million streams. While this milestone is rare for most artists, it’s a common achievement for Drake, marking his 248th song to reach 100 million streams on Spotify. This number is more than double that of any other rapper on the platform. As a result, Drake is currently the seventh most-streamed artist on Spotify this month.

In contrast, Kendrick Lamar’s “Not Like Us” has overshadowed the achievements of other songs in their feud. It debuted at number one on the Hot 100 last month and has remained in the top 5 since then. “Not Like Us” also broke multiple records for Spotify streams within the first 24 hours, surpassing even some of Drake’s records. The rivalry between Drake and Kendrick continues to drive both artists to new heights of commercial success.
