Drake Diss Track 'Family Matters' Debuts at No. 6 on the Billboard Canadian Hot 100

The rap battle between Drake and Kendrick Lamar dominates the charts this week, with the Toronto superstar debuting the seven minute missive “Family Matters” at No. 6 on the Billboard Canadian Hot 100.

Lamar's final word, "Not Like Us," is proving even more popular, topping the U.S. Hot 100 and coming in at No. 2 in Canada.


Other tracks related to the beef can be seen throughout the top 100. Future and Metro Boomin’s “Like That” – which features Lamar’s now infamous “F-ck the big 3, it’s just big me” bar and initially ignited the feud – and Drake’s response to it, “Push Ups,” follow each other back to back, occupying spots No. 12 and No. 13. Lamar’s "Euphoria," which followed "Push Ups," spends its second week on the chart at No. 5.

Lamar’s eerie penultimate diss track “Meet The Grahams” debuts at No. 16, right behind Ariana Grande’s thumping, dreamy ballad “We Can’t Be Friends (Wait For Your Love)." Altogether, the feud occupies six positions in the top 20. Only Drake's "The Heart Part 6," his final reply to Lamar, has yet to chart (not counting his “Taylor Made Freestyle,” which was removed from streaming services after a cease-and-desist from Tupac Shakur’s Estate).

Unlike in the U.S., though, the top spot here has nothing to do with battling. Shaboozey’s “A Bar Song (Tipsy),” a country interpretation of J-Kwon’s 2003 “Tipsy,” reigns supreme for the second week in a row, after taking the No.1 spot from Taylor Swift last week. Tommy Richman’s sensational debut single “Million Dollar Baby” continues to make waves by climbing up to No. 3, while Benson Boone’s “Beautiful Things” begins its descent as it drops to No. 4.

In terms of non-Drake Canadians on the chart, Charlotte Cardin's "99 Nights" moves up in its second week charting to No. 88. Preston Pablo's "Dance Alone" moves up 80-76 and Owen Riegling's "Old Dirt Roads" moves up 88-81. Tate McRae's "Greedy" holds at No. 21.

As the Lamar-Drake beef seemingly comes to its end musically, time will tell whether the diss tracks have chart longevity, as the scope of their impact on the two artists comes into view.
