Metro Boomin Defends 'Like That' Success After Claims About Drake's Influence on Song

After being said that the single debuted atop the Billboard Hot 10 chart due to Drake being mentioned by Kendrick Lamar, the 'Mr. Right Now' spitter shuts down the claim.

AceShowbiz - Metro Boomin has defended the success of his newly-released single titled "Like That", which features Kendrick Lamar and Future. The "Mr. Right Now" spitter responded to claims suggesting that the collaboration only gained its success due to Drake's influence.

Several comments that Metro made on Instagram about the song were screenshotted by DJ Akademiks. On Tuesday, April 2, the disc jockey uploaded the photo on the social media platform. Along with the screenshot, Akademiks wrote in the caption of the post, "Naaa metro turning up on yall who tryna say he only got a #1 cuz of drake."

In one of the comments, Metro let out a hashtag that read, "#VillainEra." Another comment read, "Album was going #1 regardless. There was gonna be a #1 single regardless. Get off d**k that man don't even know y'all."

Metro's defense prompted social media users to voice their thoughts on "Like That". In the comments section of the post, one in particular wrote, "I mean, the song is literally number one on billboard because of controversy. Idk why he denying it." Another noted, "Whenever anyone talks about this album, it's never about any other songs on that album but the Drake diss and sometimes that carti feature."

Metro, Future and Kendrick released "Like That", which is featured in Metro and Future's album "We Don't Trust You", on March 22. Around two weeks after the song was unleashed, the track debuted atop the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

On the song, Kendrick, who has been feuding with Drake for the past decade, raps, "Motherf**k the big three, n***a, it's just big me." He was making a reference to him, Drake and J. Cole, who are commonly known as "the big three."

On the same track, Kendrick spits, "Yeah, get up with me/ F**k sneak dissin', first person shooter/ I hope they came with three switches." He was referring to Drake's collaborative track with Cole titled "First Person Shooter", which was released in 2023.
