So far, July has been all about drake, According to Billboard, Drake has made history once again after Scorpion reached a billion global streams within its first week.
This makes Drizzy the first artist to ever reach that accomplishment. Prior to Drake’s new album, Post Malone held the record for most streams in a week with a little under 700M for beerbongs & bentleys.
Drake beat that record within the first three days. Off of streams alone, his latest album could’ve placed him at the top of the Billboard album charts.
Drake’s latest project is also the first album to be released under Billboard’s new formula for calculating the weight of on-demand streams. Streams through paid subscriptions such as TIDAL, Spotify and Apple Music hold more weight than free streams.
