With so many accomplishments under his belt already, Drake continues to prove that he can’t be stopped as a musician and an entertainer.

According to Forbes, Drake has become the first artist to hit 10 billion streams on Spotify. A large portion of these streams can be traced back to his Views album. “One Dance” landed Drake his first No. 1 on the Hot 100 charts as the lead on the track and eventually ended up becoming the most popular song on the entire album. That song alone has over a billion streams on Spotify and was the first record to reach the one billion stream milestone on the streaming service.

Although a huge chunk of Drake’s 10 billion streams came from the Views album, his catalog is extensive and those old albums that fans seem to adore so much play a huge role as well. Each one of Drake’s projects, from So Far Gone to Thank Me Later to Take Care and up, have successfully earned the Toronto rapper a hit single. His new single “Fake Love” which he dropped back in December has over 320 million streams already.

In other Drake news, his highly anticipated playlist/project More Life is dropping tomorrow (March 18.) Both “Fake Love” and a record featuring 21 Savage called “Sneakin’” are set to be on this new project. Not to mention, he is currently on tour in Europe for his Boy Meets World Tour. This is a follow-up to Summer Sixteen, his collaborative tour with Future that turned out to be hip-hop’s highest grossing rap tour ever.

Accomplishment after accomplishment, things are only getting better for the OVO Sound/Young Money artist.
