His success has been a product of foresight and calculation.

Chance, if it played a role at all, was a secondary factor.

Of course, the most striking element isn’t anything conceptual, it’s the presence of Rihanna, the featured artist, playing Kendrick’s love interest, and the clothes that adorn her figure as she and Kendrick gaze fondly and faithfully at each other.

They’re entirely convincing: Rihanna’s a gifted actress and it’s not like Kendrick, or any man, is going to have trouble behaving as if he’s fallen for her. Kendrick’s long been committed to his high-school sweetheart, and Rihanna’s too committed to her own freedom.

And it’s all but certain that when Kendrick stepped up to defend Jay’s honor on “The Heart, Part 4” — “Hoe, Jay-Z Hall of Fame, sit your punk-ass down” — he was defending it from Drake. So to sum up, Jay, through Meek, helps provide the opening for Kendrick to pass Drake.

If this still seems far-fetched, consider the fact that Jay basically spelled out this strategy years before the beef even started.

Jay and Rihanna have a long-standing business relationship.

It was Jay, as president of Def Jam, who originally signed Rihanna to a major label, Rihanna premiered on Tidal last year, and she continues to be managed by Roc Nation.

But it’s hard to think that Kendrick crowned himself entirely on his own.

Much of the reason Drake seems exhausted now (quite literally — several lyrics from , originally intended for a summer 2015 release, was derailed for almost an entire year in the wake of the outbreak of hostilities with Meek; when it finally did arrive, a year later, it was, despite having moments, so prolonged and mediocre that Drake’s reputation, though not his sales, suffered.

On his featured verse on “Light Up” from Drake’s major label debut Rihanna’s first words on “Loyalty” — “It’s a secret society, all we ask is trust” — aren’t her own.
