Drake Is The First Artist to Hit 10 Billion Streams on Spotify

Last year Drake was the winner for the most streamed song ever on Spotify and also Spotify’s most streamed artist. This year, he’s broken the 10 billion mark in streams!

As many can remember, Views was a streaming powerhouse in 2016 and still continues to dominate in 2017. It debuted at number 1 on the Billboard charts and managed to sell a little over a million copies in its first week.  Many of the songs on Views add to the streaming record. With “Hotline Bling” and “Controlla” generating a combined 940 million streams alone. And according to Forbes, Drake racked up a solid 2 billions streams with Views alone!

Additionally, the popularity of “One Dance”, Drake’s first number 1 hit as a lead artist, contributes greatly to his streaming success. The song alone has 1.15 billion plays, or about 10% of his overall streaming count. As his older music continues to break records, we can look forward to his new material garnering the same success!

More Life is scheduled to be released later today on OVO Sound Radio! 🌺
