Drake has officially become the first artist to surpass 50 billion streams across all platforms.
Now, it’s unclear whether not forty-eight billion was still a record in itself, but it certainly lacks the rotundity of fifty.

It’s unclear which artists come close to toppling Drizzy’s record, but for now, the Scorpion King continues to assert his commercial dominance.
The news comes on the heels of an album-related milestone, as Scorpion and recent single “In My Feelings” both enjoy successful Billboard runs.
