Drake’s “Scorpion” shattered single-day streaming records on both Apple Music and Spotify.
The Canadian rapper’s new double album on pace for the most streamed week in charts history.
The 25-track project easily crushed Apple Music’s single-day streaming record, previously held by Drake’s own More Life, with 170 million streams worldwide in its first 24 hours of release.
“More Life” accumulated 89.9 million streams on the service upon its release in March 2017.
On Spotify, Scorpion’s tracks have chalked up over 132 million streams in its first 24 hours, and all tracks from the album appear among the first 41 spots on Spotify’s worldwide Top 200 chart; Side A opener “Non-Stop” drew 9.2 million streams alone.
“Scorpion” is well on its way toward beating the record for most streams in one week, which Post Malone’s Beerbongs & Bentleys recorded earlier this year when that album opened at Number One thanks in part to 431 streams.
The A Side of Drake’s double album is dedicated to hip-hop while B Side focuses on R&B.
According to Verge, it could hit a billion streams in its first week of release.
