Drake Becomes the First Artist Ever with 50 Billion Spotify Streams


Drake has become the first artist ever to surpass 50 billion combined streams on Spotify. The Chart Data website, which keeps regular tabs on chart movements and streaming figures, has now announced that Drake has surpassed 50 billion combined streams (including featured credits) on Spotify.

The feat is impressive but not surprising, considering that his 2018 song “God’s Plan” alone has racked up nearly 1.675 billion streams. The independent music data website ChartMasters backs this claim up. Calculating that Drake has clocked up 35.72 billion streams of his own songs and 14.30 billion streams of “featured streams” (such as tracks he has guested on), taking his combined total to just over 50 billions streams on Spotify.

In 2018, Drake became the first artist to compile 50 billion streams on all platforms. And three years later he’s the first to cross the 50 billion threshold on Spotify.

Drake’s next album, ‘Certified Lover Boy’, is set to be released this year. It had been thought that the record could emerge this month, but The 6 God took to his Instagram Story on Jan. 20 to let fans know that his sixth studio album wouldn’t be dropping this month.
