The rapper's 2018 album 'Scorpion' previously held the record.
Drake just topped his own all-time record for single-day streams on Spotify with his new album, Certified Lover Boy, Spotify has confirmed with Billboard. His previous album, Scorpion, was the previous record-holder with 132 million single-day streams.
Earlier this week, Kanye West’s Donda earned nearly 100 million global streams in its first 24 hours on Spotify, giving the rapper the second-highest single-day streaming total in Spotify’s history and the highest of 2021. Leave it to the Toronto superstar to snag away the latter record in a matter of days. Drake is also breaking records on Apple Music, toppling its 2021 record for the most-streamed artist in a day, and Certified Lover Boy became the most-streamed album in a day this year in less than 12 hours.
