Drizzy’s latest album Scorpion went platinum as soon as it was released, and now the album is the first to reach 1 billion streams across all platforms globally within a week. Drake‘s 25-track double album blew past Post Malone’s Beerbongs & Bentleys global record, which was just under 700 million streams.
It’s likely these numbers will propel Scorpion to the top of Billboard’s 200 albums chart when the official numbers are released Sunday. Drake celebrated his historic achievement with an Instagram post thanking his fans “a billion times over.”
In other Drake-related news, the Toronto rapper just dropped a new freestyle spitting subliminal bars at Kanye West.
New era. New platinum. Thank you a billion times over (a billion plus). ?
