It’s record-breaking season for Toronto born and raised rapper Drake as his new album, Scorpion, has just broken the record for the most U.S. streams in any single given week. Originally reported by both Billboard and Chart Data, Drizzy’s new album not only broke the record for the most U.S. streams in any single given week, it did so in just three days. Certainly a massive feat, Scorpion has amassed a total of 435 million on-demand streams, and that’s just over the first weekend it was released.
Ultimately, it’s unknown as to just how much Spotify‘s doubling down of the record on its platform contributes to the record’s streaming success, given that it was an unavoidable advertisement on the streaming giant’s pages. Nonetheless, it’s an incredible accomplishment pointing to both the rapper’s reign and success of the padding of album’s on Spotify.
Drake’s new record surpasses Post Malone‘s previously held title for his album Beerbongs & Bentleys, which held the record at 431.3 million streams in the week ending May 3.
