Drake becomes the first-ever artist to hit 50 Billion Spotify streams

Drake has officially become the most-streamed artist in the history of Spotify.

The Canadian-born musician has managed to surpass 50 billion streams of his work on the music platform and is the first and only artist to have managed to do so.

Drake currently has 12 records on the platform after his debut EP So Far Gone landed on Spotify in 2019 as part of its 10th anniversary.

The achievement was announced by Chart Data and gets added to other accolades that Drake can boast of such as having the most ‘Billboard Hot 100’ entries, being the artist with the most top 10 entries and the first male artist to debut three tracks at number one on the same chart.

Fans are now eagerly awaiting the release of Certified Lover Boy, his sixth studio album, which is expected to drop soon. Drake was recently spotted in the Bahamas with Meek Mill which spurred rumours of them working on a music video, despite no release dates for the project having been announced.
