Drake Becomes First Artist to Hit 10 Billion Streams on Spotify

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.
