Drake‘s latest effort Scorpion is already breaking records one day after release. The double album, which features 25 tracks from the Toronto rapper, has reportedly shattered the opening day streaming record previously held by Post Malone‘s beerbongs & bentleys.

Spotify tweeted out yesterday (June 29) that Scorpion was being streamed a throttling 10 million times every hour leading to the record-breaking four US and global peaks.


According to Music Business Worldwide, who has tabulated stats based on SpotifyCharts.com, Scorpion earned approximately 132 million worldwide streams globally in its first day, which puts it miles ahead of Malone’s 78 million. It clocked in at 80.5 million streams domestically, breaking a US record.


In the same report, Drake has also broken the record for most first-day singles streams worldwide as “Nonstop” earns approximately 9.2 million streams globally, putting it above Taylor SwiftScorpion currently occupies the top 23 spots on the Spotify U.S. song charts.


To some, the records may not surprise, Spotify (after receiving the album almost a half hour after Apple Music) changed every playlist cover on the platform to a photo of Drake, even playlists that didn’t feature the 6God. What do you think of the new king of stream?
