“But if it would have went No. 2, it wouldn’t have mattered,” Cole said. “I wouldn’t have felt no way.”
Cole elaborated on “First Person Shooter” nabbing the top spot over Drake and Yeat’s For All the Dogs collaboration “IDGAF” that week.
“If the other song would have went No. 1, it’s like, bruh, I’m cool,” Cole said. “I’d almost feel better not having my first No. 1 be off a Drake alley-oop, you know what I mean?”
He continued, “Like, I love Drake and I love that I’m a part of that moment with him with Michael Jackson. But it’s like, bruh, I’m grateful I’m a part of it. But if the other song would have went No. 1, n***a, I’m still grateful I’m a part of it. I wasn’t at home like, ‘Come on, y’all! Pick up the streams, man! We gotta beat this motherfucker Yeat! Come on now!’ I wasn’t doing that.”
