Drake Officially Breaks All Streaming Records

Drake's Scorpion has been streamed more times than any other album in its first week.

It only took Drake's fifth album three days to break the previous mark, which was 431.3 million streams for Post Malone's Beerbongs and Bentleys.

Scorpion should end the week with close to 700 million streams.

On the other hand, Hits Daily Double has downgraded their first-week projections for Scorpion from 870K-920K sales plus streaming to 725-775k SPS. 

And some of that streaming success may have to do with real estate: Spotify granted Drizzy a "takeover" of their service, meaning that his image was used even on playlists that didn't feature his music.

This angered some of Drake's non-fans. 

 Reddit user Schwagschwag revealed he was refunded one month's payment after he complained to Spotify's customer service about getting hit with a parade of Drake "ads" even though he pays for ad-free premium. Other Drake-haters on Reddit tried the same with varying degrees of success.
