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.”
