Drake ‘Scorpion’ album does more than 1bn first-week streams
Posted on: 9 juillet 2018, by : Stuart Dredge

This is where we’re at in the evolution of music-streaming: a single album has been streamed more than 1bn times in its first week after release.
That album, of course, is Drake’s ‘Scorpion’, with label Republic Records having confirmed the figure to The Verge, as well as the artist himself having posted about it. “New era. New platinum. Thank you a billion times over (a billion plus),” wrote Drake on Instagram.
These are global figures, but it has also become clear how large a role the US played in the first-week success of his new album: according to Billboard, ‘Scorpion’ did 745.9m streams in the US last week – nearly three quarters of the total.
