Drake Becomes First Artist To Reach 1 Billion Stream In A Week
Drake’s Scorpion has put him in a whole new category, as the first artist to reach a billion streams in one week. With a total of 732,171 equivalent album units moved (159,771 in pure album sales and a record-breaking streaming count of 745,923,606), the 25-track album was untouchable.
Scorpion has the honor of having the biggest debut of 2018, so far. And, with this latest #1, Drake is now tied with other pop stars for the sixth-most #1 albums in U.S. history. Kenny Chesney, Madonna, U2, Eminem, and Kanye West — who just collected his eighth chart-topping album — are similarly adorned.
