New king of Spotify.
Ditto with Apple Music. According to The Verge, Drake’s More Life was streamed 89.9 million on Apple Music, breaking the single-day album streams record for every music service.
Drake’s new More Life playlist now holds the record for the best first-day streams for an album on Spotify ever.
Ed Sheeran’s new record Divide held onto that record for a whopping two weeks before Drake reclaimed his throne. According to The Verge, More Life was streamed 61,302,082 times, surpassing Ed Sheeran’s Divide for first-day album streams with 56,727,861. Drake also broke the record on Sunday for single-day artist streams, with 76,355,041 streams.
Drake was Spotify’s most-streamed artist in 2015 and 2016. “One Dance” is still the most-streamed song on the service.
And if that’s not enough to wrap your head around, Drizzy is reportedly the first artist ever to reach 10 billion streams on the platform.
More Life, more Drake.
