On Wednesday (July 10), social media was abuzz with the revelation that when the iPhone’s artificial intelligence Siri is told to play Drake’s “Certified Lover Boy” on Spotify, it causes the streaming service to play Kendrick Lamar’s “Not Like Us” instead.

The confusion spread like wildfire on social media, with many attempting to test the theory and expressing mixed reactions. There is no confirmation yet that Apple or Spotify are involved in the song shuffle.

Published in 2021, Certified Loverboy is Drake’s sixth studio album. The 21-song album included the hit singles “Knife Talk,” “Girls Want Girls,” and “Way 2 Sexy.” It won the award for Best Rap Album at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards and was certified 3x platinum.

Kendrick Lamar’s “Not Like Us” topped the Billboard charts upon its release in May. This is Lamar’s last diss track for Drake after the feud began in April. The music video has garnered over 44 million views on YouTube in less than a week.

At the Ken & Friends: The Pop Out concert at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles last month, Kendrick performed “Not Like Us” six times. The track, produced by DJ Mustard, is eligible for a Grammy nomination.

In the wake of the dispute, trolls launched a GoFundMe campaign to support Drake’s career. As of May 7, GoFundMe has shut down hundreds of fake campaigns about the rap beef, ranging from commemorating Drake’s metaphorical funeral to funding Kendrick Lamar’s studio space. Fundraisers included “Support Kendrick Lamar’s studio time for the Ultimate Diss T,” “Join the Love Fund for Drake’s farewell,” and “RIP Drake.”
