Four months after being certified triple Platinum, the Recording Industry Association Of America (RIAA) have confirmed Drake‘s VIEWS album has now gone quadruple Platinum!
According to the RIAA, VIEWS surpassed 4 million sales on December 1st after it was first released on May 6th (digitally it was April 29th).
Congratulations to the 6 God on this amazing accomplishment. I wonder if Drizzy‘s upcoming More Life project be as successful as VIEWS when he drops it sometime this month?
For the second year in a row, Drake has been named Spotify‘s “Most Streamed Artist” after having over 4.7 billion streams on the streaming service this year alone.
As well as being named the most-streamed artist of 2016, Drizzy has the “Most Streamed Song” this year with his “One Dance” single (also the most-streamed song in the streaming service’s history) and the “Most Streamed Album” with Views.

The Weeknd recently did an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 Radio to promote his new album, Starboy, available in stores now.

Yesterday, Drake teased his and Kanye West‘s upcoming collaboration album by sharing the picture above on his Instagram page with a caption: “There goes the neighborhood”.
Yeezy‘s manager, Scooter Braun, also left a comment on the photo saying: “It begins…” with four clapping emojis and if anyone would know anything about the joint project, it would be Scooter.
This collaboration project from Drizzy and Kanye has been teased all throughout 2016 and more recently in the summer when West asked the crowd at OVO Fest if they are ready to hear a joint album from them, as well as when they added billboards up around Los Angeles.
The biggest confirmation of all comes from Kanye West when he mentioned in an interview in September that him and the 6 God are indeed working on an album together. As of right now, there is no release date for the project, but Drizzy Drake still plans to drop More Life in December!
Drake‘s latest album, VIEWS, has now spent 26 weeks in the top half of the Billboard 200 chart after debuting at No. 1 on the chart back in May.
According to Billboard, only 6 other albums have been able to do that since 1963. The project that has had the most weeks in the top five of the chart is Adele with her 21 album. That run was for 39 weeks, so do you think Drizzy can reach and surpass that?
The 6 God‘s 26 weeks in the top 5 of the Billboard 200 chart means he is equal with Eagles’ Hotel California album that dropped back in 1977. The other albums currently above him are Garth Brooks’ Ropin’ The Wind, Whitney Houston’s The Bodyguard, Stevie Wonder’s Songs In The Key Of Life, and Michael Jackson’s Bad!

Nicki also revealed she will be working on features to drop before her next album is released, as well as mentioned she has an unreleased collaboration with Remy Ma and Foxy Brown over Diplo production that didn’t make her The Pinkprint album!
