Kendrick Lamar’s ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’ Sets New Streaming Record On ‘Spotify’

kendrick-lamar-that-grape-juice-2015-90000000000098888999

Weeks before another chart titan is said to surprise the world with a new LP, Kendrick Lamar has learned that his decision to drop his new LP ‘To Pimp a Butterfly’ like a generous thief in the night has paid off…big time.

Set free a week before its original release date, the album has now set a first-day streaming record on the streaming service ‘Spotify’, spun 9.6 million times worldwide in the space of a day.

Doing so has seen him snatch the record away from Michael Bolton’s ‘Christmas’ LP and earn him a reported $44,160 in a single day globally, outperforming Drake’s ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’ and Madonna’s ‘Rebel Heart’ on the platform.

The singer has been a fixture in the headlines of late after news hit that he fathered a nine-month old baby named Royalty. Perhaps most stinging, though, was the fact that long-suffering girlfriend Karrueche Tran had no idea.

Yet, it seems C. Breezy can’t stop peeping her activity.
