Now they’ve got bad blood? Drake received backlash after seemingly throwing shade at Taylor Swift for the success she’s garnered from her latest album, Midnights.

Drake Throws Shade at Taylor Swift's 'Midnights' Success: Details

On Monday, November 14, the rapper, 36, shared the part week’s Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, highlighting that many of his Her Loss songs were dominating the chart — and covering up the 32-year-old singer’s own achievement.

Per the chart, which the “God’s Plan” artist posted via his Instagram Story, eight tracks from his collaborative record with 21 Savage nabbed the second through the seventh spot on the list. Swift’s “Anti-Hero,” however, remained in the coveted No. 1 slot. The track — which is the first single off the pop star’s 10t studio album, Midnights — has been at the top of Billboard for three consecutive weeks, making it the longest-running No. 1 song in the history of the “Shake It Off” artist’s career.

Drake, for his part, covered up the Folklore musician’s song on the list with various emojis — including a tub of popcorn, a magic eight ball and a cloud of smoke — concealing the hit from his followers.

Following the Canada native’s pointed move, fans quickly took to social media to criticize his hot take.

“Drake being petty towards taylor because she blocked him on the charts… like bffr it was YOUR decision to release your album right after hers,” one person tweeted, while another replied, “drake getting more attention for hiding taylor swift on his post because he was jealous of her success is more attention than what his music ever got.”

A third Swiftie hinted that the “Knife Talk” artist wouldn’t have made the same decision if the No. 1 spot had been filled by a man. “I hate that men can get away advancing themselves on the Billboard hot 100, but God forbid that a woman do it,” they wrote. “To me, this just seems like pure jealousy and that makes me so mad.”
