When we first heard the song “Panda” by Desiigner, we actually thoght it was another Future joint [pretty much everyone did]. A lot of people feel that Desiigner [real name Sydney SelbyIII] is fully riding Future’s flow. But thats not so uncommon in the rap world, they say plagiarism is the biggest form of flattery.
But what might not be so flattering [for future at least] is that Panda, which is a solo song by an artist who many feel is a rap doppelganger of future has actually charted higher than any solo song Future has released to date.
At the time of writing this article, Panda is no.14 on the Billboard 100. Even though Future has recently been dominating the rap scene. His highest position on the Billboard 100 is no.28 for both “Where ya at” and “Low Life”.
"Panda" has charted higher than anything Future has ever done without Drake, America is trash https://t.co/pDkV4JJ0px

So Future has been as high as no.3, but that was when he teamed up with Drake for Jumpman. We don’t know what to make of this. Possibly, Future is a victim of his own success. He merely wrote the blueprint and now it looks like others are capitalising on his plans.
Panda’s a dope song btw.
