Drake Becomes the First Artist to Hit 1 Billion Streams in One Week

Drake 'Views From The 6' Release Date

Drake’s latest album Scorpion went platinum the very day it was released, and like that isn’t big enough, the album has now reached 1 billion streams across all platforms globally within a week. This seals the number 1 spot and marks yet another milestone for Drake as the first artist alive or dead, to hit 1 billion streams in just one week.

Drizzy’s new 25-track double album surpassed the record previously held by Post Malone’s  Beerbongs & Bentleys album, which achieved 700 million streams in its first week. Scorpion is expected to debut at number 1 on the Billboard 200. The Toronto native shared the great news on Instagram, thanking his fans “a billion times over.”

New era. New platinum. Thank you a billion times over (a billion plus). 🦂
