Drake’s ‘More Life’ Playlist Exceeds 1 Billion Streams
It's already been an incredible year for Drake's music career, and the Toronto rapper is making even more history on the boards. While he previously set a record by surpassing one billion streams on Spotify a couple months back, his More Life playlist itself, has now exceeded 1 billion on-demand audio streams in total, according to Billboard.
According to Nielsen Music, the project was still in the No. 1 album spot on the Top 200 chart and moved another 136,000 equivalent album units for the week ending April 6. The Canadian superstar has reportedly racked up a total of 1.07 billion streams in the U.S. through that week and collected 167 million streams last week to be able to accomplish the milestone. Even though More Life is making its own history for surpassing one billion streams, his previous album, Views, holds the record for the highest number of on-demand audio streams at 3.48 billion.
If you recall, More Life moved 505,000 equivalent album units during its first week of release after it officially dropped on March 18. While we're not sure what else is in store for the "Hotline Bling" hitmaker this year, we can only hope a tour will be on the horizon as the warmer weather starts to roll around. We already know DJ Khaled is preparing to have Drizzy on his upcoming Grateful album.
