With the ongoing beef between rappers Drake and Meek Mill it effectively boosted the hype of Atlanta up-and-comer 21 Savage, who now has four simultaneous singles on the Billboard Hot 100 right now.
Savage landed a guest spot on Meek Mill’s long-awaited DC4, which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 album charts, shifting 87,000 sales equivalent units entirely through streams and paid downloads. Multiple tracks off DC4 appeared on the Hot 100. Half of the record’s 14 songs charted, with the Savage feature “Offended” kicking off this week at No. 70.
DC4 being just days out, some fresh batch of new Drake material debuted via Apple Music on his OVO Sound Radio. Among the tracks scheduled for his upcoming More Life playlist was “Sneakin’,” featuring 21 Savage that showcased the Canadian pop rapper’s more aggressive side. As expected, the track hit the Hot 100 promptly and after two weeks holds the No. 28 position.
