Drake Is The First Artist On Spotify To Reach 10 Billion Streams
Drake may not now have the No. 1 single in the nation and his most recent Earth-shattering album isn’t selling as many copies as it once did, people are still listening to him, especially when it comes to streaming.
The hip-hop musician has recently been the first act to reach the 10 billion-stream mark, according to Swedish streaming giant Spotify, further demonstrating a level of popularity that was unquestionable.
Drake’s most recent full-length, Views, which swept the globe when it was released last year, is largely responsible for the 10 billion listens that it has received. The most well-liked song from the smash album and his first No. 1 success as a lead artist, “One Dance,” has now had 1.15 billion plays alone, or well over 10% of his total plays. The song was the first to pass the one billion play mark back in December. Numerous additional songs from Views have received a significant number of plays, including “Hotline Bling,” which has just over 600 million plays, “Too Good,” which has 520 million plays, and “Controlla,” which has over 340 million. In fact, Drake’s most recent album, which hasn’t yet been released, alone raked up well over two billion streams.
Drake will most certainly have amassed 15 billion, or maybe 20 billion, by the time another worldwide celebrity reaches the 10 billion level. Spotify and streaming in general are still in their infancy, and the numbers will continue to rise.
