Drake’s new album, Certified Lover Boy, has already surpassed the numbers reached by Kanye West’s latest project, Donda, according to data from the Rolling Stone charts.

According to Alpha Data, a music business intelligence platform that provides chart analytics, CLB out-streamed Donda’s entire first week in just three days.

From the date of its release up until Sunday 5 September, CLB was streamed over 430 million times in the US, while Donda clocked in 423 million streams in its first eight days of release.

Kanye, 44, surprise-released his 10th studio album on August 29, while rap rival Drake released his eagerly anticipated project days later on September 3.

Certified Lover Boy currently ranks second in its history for the biggest streaming debut, behind the record also held by Drake.

The 34-year-old’s 2018 album Scorpion pulled in just over 725 million streams in its first week.

With their albums dropping so close to each other, Drake and Kanye’s feud has well and truly been alive and kicking again in recent weeks.

Yeezy kicked things off when he reportedly leaked the God’s Plan rapper’s home address, while Drizzy leaked one of his rival’s unreleased songs featuring Andre 3000. 

Indeed, the drama had everyone talking about their feud almost more than the music itself.

Something tells us this rap beef is far from over now these new stats have been revealed.
