Under the new system, streams from paid services will be weighed higher than those on free, ad-supported services. Therefore, one has to wonder if his monumental numbers will continue to be reflected moving forward. Either way, Scorpion is nearly upon us, and all manner of burning questions will soon be answered.

In early May, Billboard finalized its new weighting system to calculate the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 albums charts. The changes are set to be implemented starting June 29. According to the new metric, Billboard 200 is now divided into two categories. On both charts, plays from paid subscription services such as Apple Music, TIDAL, and Spotify’s subscription tier are now assigned greater weight than streams on free, ad-supported services such as YouTube and Spotify’s free tier. Drake has traditionally been one of the most streamed artists. Prior to the release of Post Malone’s ‘beerbongs & bentleys,’ the Toronto rapper held the record for the biggest streaming week thanks to his 2017 playlist ‘More Life.’ Although Billboard’s new weighting metric will likely mean ‘Scorpion’ has lower overall streaming numbers, Drake may not be affected as much as other artists. He has a strong history with Apple Music dating back to his Beats 1 Radio show OVO Sound.
