Kendrick Lamar’s “Not Like Us” is currently one of the most popular songs worldwide. The track, released on May 4th, has become nearly inescapable, dominating the airwaves and playlists. While some listeners are tired of it, and others were never fans, the majority of hip-hop enthusiasts have embraced the song, which is evident from its impressive Spotify records.

However, questions have arisen regarding the legitimacy of these streaming numbers. DJ Akademiks has been at the forefront of these discussions, suggesting that Kendrick Lamar and Spotify might have collaborated to artificially boost the song’s streams. While many dismissed these claims as baseless, they have gained traction among some listeners. In response, DJ Akademiks took it upon himself to investigate further.
