Streaming’s King and Queen, Drake & Rihanna, saw their respective thrones unbothered this year (as recent reports reveal).

Spotify’s #2016Wrapped list arrived today and, to the surprise of few, the ‘Work’ duo jointly and individually worked up some jaw-dropping stats over the course of the year.  Drizzy, thanks to his record-breaking album ‘Views,’ topped Spotify’s “most streamed list” for the second year by racking up a whopping 4.7 billion streams (more than twice his tally in 2015).  ‘One Dance’ – the megahit birthed from the chart-topping release – now sits in record books as not only the most streamed song of 2016, but also of all time.

Following those 4.7 billion streams is Rihanna, thanks to 2.5 billion streams of hits found aboard her 8th opus ‘Anti’ and across her hit-filled catalog.

Chart Check [Billboard Hot 100]: Drake & Lady Gaga Lead Week’s Top Debuts

‘Fake Love’ & ‘A-Yo’ Impact Charts

gagadrake-thatgrapejuice

As the 2016’s Billboard 200 chart has been very kind to Grammy-winning performers Lady Gaga and Drake (thanks to their respective #1 albums ‘Joanne’ and ‘Views’), now, from the looks of things, the former is looking to see if she can emulate that success on the Billboard Hot 100.

Drizzy, who’s already left his mark on the singles charts with hits ‘Controlla,’ ‘Too Good,’ and, of course, ‘One Dance,’ saw the refreshed chart grant him multiple new entries.  Gaga, on the other hand, may be seeing her tune, ‘Perfect Illusion,’ elude chart glory, but the debut of fellow ‘Joanne’ tune ‘A-Y0’ this week, her Hot 100 narrative may finally add a positive spin.

If you’re curious to know where Drake, Gaga, and all your favorites from the day landed on this week’s Chart Check, tuck in below:

Man this Kid Cudi vs. Drake beef is turning into the royal rumble!

In case you’ve been under a rock, the whole issue was reignited earlier this week when Drizzy dropped four new tunes – one of which, titled ‘Two Birds, One Stone,’ housed a diss aimed at Cudi’s current mental condition due to previously perceived shade from the ‘Day & Night’ hitmaker. After social media and news outlets went all the way in on Drake for his insensitivity, Cudi, currently undergoing treatment at a rehab facility for his highly publicized bout with depression, took to Twitter to clap back:

Drake Under Continued Twitter Attack After Dissing Kid Cudi’s Depression

drake-more-life-tgj

It’s no secret that rap has had its share of high profile beefs over the years. From lyrical jabs on on baby mamas and kids to finances, girlfriends, and sexual tendencies, rappers usually leave no stone unturned when trying to “one-up” their opponents.

But, let Twitter tell it, the beef between Grammy winning rappers Drake and Kid Cudi may have seen the former take it a step too far when he dropped a line about the latter’s mental status.

Indeed, Cudi’s self-check in to a facility for help with ongoing issues with drugs and depression was highly publicized earlier this month.  The move was given a fresh douse of gasoline when Drizzy, via his recently unveiled song, ‘Two Birds, One Stone,’ took a jab at Cudi’s reportedly life-threatening condition.

Twitter was not pleased:

A day before he hits the big 3-0, it appears Grammy winning rapper Drake is the one handing out gifts.  That’s right, as if laying claim to 2016’s best-selling album, ‘Views,’ wasn’t enough to make his year, it appears the 6 God is looking for a bit of a redo as he announced a new project.

Officially described as a “playlist, not a mixtape,” the set – which will be comprised of all original music – will be titled ‘More Life’ and is going to give his fans its namesake just in time for the holidays…
