“Stream yummy by justin bieber,” Roddy wrote, after which his fans flooded his replies with their disapproval. Now, Lil Pump has involved himself in the tense competition of sorts. Pump posted a clip from the “Yummy” music video on his Instagram with the caption, “MY BIG BRO JUST DROPPED GO GET THIS TO 1 BIL ! @justinbieber ???.” Though he technically asked his followers to get “Yummy” to 1 billion views on Youtube rather than to #1 on the charts, it still completely aligns with Bieber’s attempts to “make ‘Yummy’ happen,” and makes us wonder if Justin might have slid Pump a cheque for his efforts.
DJ Akademiks hopped in the comments of Pump’s post to remind us that “Yummy” is never going to happen, showing his support for the song’s chart rival. “The ?,” Akademiks wrote, a simple yet effective reminder of which artist he and many others are routing for instead.
