J. Cole is reveling in the moment his Drake feature on the “For All The Dogs” album emerged as a chart-topper, and says they got there thanks to loyal fans … who still buying downloads!!!
Lil Yachty got Cole’s reaction to his first-ever No. 1 hit, “First Person Shooter,” on the latest episode of “A Safe Place” podcast.” He also asked Cole if he was upset the track was surpassed by another Drake hit — the Yeat-featured, “IDGAF” — shortly thereafter.
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
Cole’s no hater — he tells Yachty he wasn’t actively rooting for his fans to stream ‘FPS’ over “IDGAF,” but he did credit them for still subscribing to old school, brick-and-mortar ways … actually purchasing the song by downloading from iTunes.
Billboard reports Drake and Cole sold 4,000 downloads and ranked No. 7 on Digital Song Sales after the first week … in comparison to its 42.2 million DSP streams and 4.3 million radio streams.
Not exactly staggering figures on the iTunes end, but every bit counts in the race to the top!!!
