Drake Becomes First Artist To Reach 10 Billion Streams On Spotify

Drake keeps racking up the accomplishments, having just become the first artist to hit 10 billion streams on Spotify.

The achievement was made possible largely thanks to the singer’s 2016 album “View,” as “One Dance” became his first No.1 hit as a lead artist, the most popular song on the entire album, and the first to reach the one billion play milestone, according to Forbes. The song currently has 1.15 billion plays alone.

Other songs from “View” that have obtained plenty of streams include “Hotline Bling” with over 600 million, “Too Good” with 520 million and “Controlla” with over 340 million.

Drake’s previous work also played a huge role in the 10 billion stream milestone, including “So Far Gone,” “Thank Me Later” and “Take Care.”

The Toronto rapper’s latest work is getting even more plays than his original material, such as “Fake Love,” which currently has over 320 million streams, while “Best I Ever Had,” which is largely responsible for Drake’s initial popularity, only has 78 million plays.

Drake fans who can’t get enough of his material can now get their hands on his latest playlist “More Life,” which was released today (Mar. 18) and includes “Fake Love” and “Sneakin,” a record featuring 21 Savage. They can also catch him in Europe on his Boy Meets World Tour.
