Word has it that Kanye delayed DONDA's release date because he feared being outshined by Drake's new offering.

The "Hotline Bling" rapper recently traded disses with Kanye as they both prepared to drop their new releases.

The Canadian superstar pummeled Kanye in lyrics on his track "7am on Bridle Path."

    "I could give a f--k about who designing your sneakers and tees
    Have somebody put you on a Gildan, you play with my seed
    Trust me, there's some sh-t you really gotta come see to believe
    That's why your people not believers, they all leavin' ya
    That's why you buyin' into the hype that the press feedin' ya

    You know the fourth level of jealousy is called media
    Isn't that an ironic revelation?
    Give that address to your driver, make it your destination
    Instead of just a post out of desperation."

Certified Lover Boy is currently number one on the Rolling Stone Top 200 Albums Chart. CLB crushed DONDA's listening figures, according to Alpha Data, the analytics provider behind the Rolling Stone charts.

In just three days, Certified Lover Boy received 430 million on-demand audio streams in the U.S. Meanwhile, DONDA pulled in just under 423 million listens in its first eight days of streaming.

Certified Lover Boy isn't Drake's biggest album to date. 2018's Scorpion, featuring hit single "Sandra's Rose," racked up more than 725 million streams in its first week of release.

Did you really think Jay-Z would let Doja Cat and Nicki Minaj beat his wife, Beyonce, to the top of the Billboard chart?

Doja and Nicki made history this week when their remix "Say So" raced to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, easily defeating Beyonce and newcomer Megan Thee Stallion's "Savage" remix.

Billboard is now investigating an anonymous tip that Doja and Nicki may have purchased illegitimate streams from fans outside the US.

Tweets have surfaced about fans using VPN's (Virtual Private Networks) to make it seem like they are in the US when they are not.

If true, @DojaCat & @NickiMinaj's long awaited #1 will be taken from them and removed from the charts, making Beyonce and Megan No. 1.

Coincidentally, Jay-Z was accused of falsifying streams for his TIDAL streaming app.
