Drake’s ‘More Life’ Streamed Over 300 Million Times on Apple Music in First Week
Drake is rap's streaming king.
Drizzy's one day total of 89.9 million streams sets a record that was held by Ed Shereen. The record for most streams in a seven-day period on any streaming service is owned by Ed Shereen, whose Divide album had 375 million listens on Spotify.
According to reports, More Life could be in the range of 600 million stream worldwide, which would be a record for one album.
One week ago, Aubrey's latest offering broke Spotify's single day streaming record. Drake totaled 76,355,041 streams on March 19, breaking a record previously owned by Ed Sheeran, who had set the mark of 68,695,172 on March 3.
Two weeks ago, the OVO boss became the first artist to reach 10 billion streams on Spotify, with a large portion of that coming from his previous release Views.
As far as album sales are concerned, More Life is jumping out the gym. The playlist is set to push between 500,000 and 550,000 equivalent album units in its first week. That marks the highest first week total of any release since his own project, Views dropped in 2016.
With those numbers, Drizzy will notch his seventh consecutive project at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Top 200 chart.
To celebrate more life and More Life, Drake is having a huge mansion built in his native Toronto. The 21,000-square-foot home is being constructed on a $6.7 million piece of property he bought back in September. It will have all the bells and whistles, including a spa, screening room, a massage room and a gym. Check out drone footage of the work in progress on the huge compound here.
