Toronto’s golden child, Drake, has done his city proud and skyrocketed past the previous record for single-day album streaming on Apple Music with 89.9 million streams.
Unlike Drake’s previous Views album, this latest gem is 22-songs and titled “More Life,” which reportedly shattered previous streams on Apple Music and also topped records on Beats 1. In addition, “More Life” crushed the single-day album streaming record for every music service, including Spotify by 30 million (Spotify streamed More Life 61.3 million times).
“Free Smoke,” “Portland,” and “Passionfruit” were the top three songs streamed on Apple Music.
Apple recently announced it has “well past” 20 million subscribers, while Spotify has over 50 million paying subscribers.
Regardless, this record will help Drake pay off his Toronto mansion.
