Drake Scorpion Album Destroys First Day Spotify Streaming Records

Drake has broken the Spotify record for the biggest opening day streams with a new album. Post Malone held the previous record with 78.7 million plays on his Beerbongs & Bentleys project, but Scorpion ended up having a huge total of 132 million streams on June 29th.

The 6 God‘s “Nonstop” song also had 9.3 million plays worldwide on the first day of Scorpion being released, which has broken another Spotify record for the biggest opening day streams with a new track. J. Cole previously held this record.

On the day of Scorpion being released, the music platform even tweeted that the album was being streamed more than 10 million times per hour, which means it looks like Drizzy will be on track to break Post Malone’s first-week streaming record of 431.3 million plays. Crazy!
