Drake Vs. Taylor Swift: The Battle Goes On
The Drake vs Taylor Swift battle goes on, or as we prefer to put it, there is joy to be had in these kinds of silent competitions! Knocking Swift’s “Midnights” from its #1 position is Drake’s “Her Loss” featuring 21 Savage.
Variety reports that, “Drake now has the third-most No. 1 albums — behind the Beatles and Jay-Z — on the Billboard 200 chart, with “Her Loss” being his 12th chart-topper. Drake and 21 Savage’s joint LP, “Her Loss,” enters the charts this week at No. 1 with the biggest first-week numbers for a hip-hop album in 2022. The set logged 404,000 album-equivalent units in the U.S. — holding 100,000 units over Kendrick Lamar‘s “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers,” which opened with 295,000 in the week ending May 19, according to data from Luminate via Billboard. “Her Loss” nearly doubled the earnings of “Honestly, Nevermind,” Drake’s dance-focused record that opened with a still-impressive 204,000 units back in June.”
