Drake becomes Spotify's first artist to hit 10 billion streams

  /  03.20.2017

It turns out Drake’s More Life album didn’t just give its featured guests major streaming boosts, but did so for the rapper-singer himself, as well. And in a major way.

Spotify has just announced that Drake is the first act to reach 10 billion streams on its music platform, according to Forbes.

Though a large portion of the plays come from his Views LP—in fact, its most popular track, “One Dance,” became the first to hit the 1-billion streams mark on the same platform—lead More Life single “Fake Love” has also seen major success having reached 320 million plays.

And while that number may seem mere, when you compare it the 78 million plays of “Best I Ever Had,” a song that’s eight years old, it’s proof of Drake’s current and unflailing stronghold on the industry.
