Drake dropped “Scorpion” late last month, and the album is already ruling the charts. Within a week of its release, listeners have streamed the album more than 1 billion times, breaking the record for most week-one streams in its first three days, Variety has learned.
“Scorpion,” which features popular tracks “Nice for What,” “Don’t Matter to Me,” and “Nonstop,” also shattered the global record for most debut-week streams after four days, surpassing previous record-holder Post Malone’s “Beerbongs & Bentleys,” which hit nearly 700 million streams in its first week.
Drake is no stranger to instant success, as “Scorpion” is the rapper’s eighth No. 1 showing on the Billboard 200 chart. Additionally, Drake has passed the threshold for the most Recording Industry Association of America certifications, recording 142 million digital sales to date.
