Drake, a man not new to accolades and awards now has another one to add to his list. Drake is now the most streamed artist in Spotify history. And that train doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon.
This year alone has been very good to Drake. He is the most streamed artist in the world for 2018, off the back of his album Scorpion, released earlier this year. His hit single “God’s Plan,” is the year’s most streamed track. His collaboration with Travis Scott on “Sicko Mode,” is also firmly entrenched at number 1 on the top of the Billboard 100 charts.
In the year Drake has accumulated over 8.2 billion streams. Coming in second on the year as most streamed artists is Post Malone. There truly is no one in terms of popularity in Drake’s class.
Drake as well has numerous Apple Music records. Scorpion broke the single day record on its release day with 170 million streams on the platform.
Drake is a staple in the music world and our pop culture as well. And it will be fascinating to see what he does next.
