Drake's newest album, "Scorpion," managed to shatter records in its first day of release. On Spotify, he managed to set the one-day global record for album streams. The album's indificual track reached 132,450,203 streams. This is 50,000,000 more than the previous record set by Post Malone's "Beerbongs & Bentleys" just a few weeks ago. Additionally, the new album's tracks took up almost the entire top 20 of Spotify's Top 200 chart.
Apple Music also confirmed that Drake's latest album has shattered its single-day record. It boasted 170 million streams on the Apple platform. The previous Apple record holder was also a Drake album, his 2017 "More Life." "Scorpion," in the meantime, became the number one album on Apple Music charts in 92 countries almost instantly. The top 5 spots on Apple Music are currently all songs from Drake's newest album.
"Scorpion" offers almost 90 minutes of new music. Drake uses this album to confirm that he is father to a son, something that rapper Pusha T recently claimed in "The Story of Adidon." Drake's response makes it seem as if a significant part of this album was recorded very recently, within the past few weeks. Drake's album also features a previously unreleased Michael Jackson track as a sample on one of his songs. As for the future, on his track "Is There More," Drake hints that this could be his last release for Cash Money: "Soon as this album drop I'm out of the deal." This doesn't mean we don't expect to hear more from Drake, but rather that he may be striking out on his own in the near future.
