Drake has become the first artist to reach over 50 billion streams across music platforms.

He broke multiple streaming records after the release of his album “Scorpion.”

Just hours after it was released, Spotify announced that streams were hitting 10 million per hour. At the end of its release day, the album had been played 132 million times. On Apple the album reached 170 million.

Now, Drake’s label Republic Records confirmed that he has reached 50 billion streams.
