Drake And NBA Youngboy Have The Most Streams In The United States In 2022
Drake is virtually impossible to outnumber in a numbers game. The Canadian rapper won the title of Billboard’s Artist Of The Decade as a result of his career-long record-setting and breaking performances on the charts. It should therefore come as no surprise that the rapper from “Knife Talk” is the most streamed musician of the year.
According to Chartdata Drake became the most streamed artist in the country this year with 4.16 billion on-demand streaming in the US. It’s a significant accomplishment that doesn’t seem all that shocking now that he has released his most recent album, Honestly, Nevermind.
Drake climbed to new heights on the Billboard 200 and Hot 100 after the release of Honestly, Nevermind. Drake became the first rapper to simultaneously debut on both charts on two different occasions thanks to the album’s and “Jimmy Cooks” ft. 21 Savage’s chart-topping success. Additionally, he continued to hold the record for the most Hot 100 top 10 hits by an artist.
NBA Youngboy is the artist with the second-most on-demand U.S. streams, just behind Drake. The Louisiana rapper has already amassed 3.37 billion on-demand streams in the United States, but when he releases his next studio album, that number will undoubtedly rise. The 30-song tracklist for The Last Slimeto is set for release in August. Although it’s unclear, it’s extremely likely that he might overtake Drake in on-demand streams in the US.
