18 million people have viewed Kendrick Lamar's "Not Like Us" on YouTube in only one day.

Hiphop appeared to be asleep, but Kendrick Lamar’s Drake Diss track “Not Like Us” helped to rouse him musically. The song that sent Drake to the cleaners demonstrates Kendrick Lamar’s skill with words and poetry.

Not only is this album breaking records, but it’s also ruling playlists and charts. One of Kendrick Lamar’s most popular songs, “Not Like Us,” has had over 18 million plays on YouTube in the short time since it was released. Not even his Humble hit record achieved this level of success in such a short time.

Kendrick Lamar spilled his guts on “Not Like Us,” revealing several dark secrets about the Toronto rapper while also discussing his perspective on Drake and how they are not in the same league.

The song is a sequel to Meet the Grahams, which was just published a few days ago. “Not Like Us” is at number 10 on the YouTube music ranking right now, and it may move up in the next few days.
