The weekend was massive for Drake with the release of his 25-track album, the announcement of his child and more milestones relating to his career. And the Canadian-born artist continues the tsunami of success by breaking his own streaming record set by his 2017 album More Life.
Within 24 hours of Friday’s release, the 31-year-old rapper’s latest LP Scorpion crushed Apple Music’s single-day streaming record – previously held by his prior More Life full length (that accumulated 89.9 million streams upon its release in March 2017) – with 170 million streams worldwide.

Side A track “Non-Stop” drew 9.2 million streams alone. This news comes as no surprise given that the album boasts a larger-than-usual track offering with hip-hop on Side A while Side B focuses on R&B. At this rate the new album could hit one billion streams in its first week. Listen to the album below.
