Drake‘s ‘Views’ album is undoubtedly the year’s biggest success story, and he’s still adding fresh pages.

Despite changing tides in the industry, the Canadian continues to prove himself a formidable force – both with pure sales and streaming.

And today he’s reached a major milestone with the latter.

Full story below…

Taking to Instagram moments ago, Drizzy revealed that the LP has become the first project to hit ONE BILLION streams on Apple Music.

It’s quite the coup for execs from the tech giant, who presented the rapper with a commemorative plaque. Peep him posing with Apple’s Tim Cook and Larry Jackson below…

Drake has been at the forefront of the Apple Music movement and, despite the service trailing Spotify, it spearheaded the year’s biggest release – which is an indisputable win.

With a visual component unveiled today in the form of ‘Please Forgive Me,’ one has to imagine more successes lay ahead.

      Three out of the 6 are slaying on Pure sales, while the other three are flops who need streams to stay afloat. Can anyone name those three flops ?

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) September 26, 2016

      Wow, i did not even know lemonade has been streamed that many times. If only she put it on spotify she would have easily passed a billion. Beyonce is a streaming force and i don’t even think she knows that yet.

    Drakiesha is giving up that a** to everybody….

  3. Naomi Campbell/ Tyra Banks September 26, 2016

    Sigh, streaming is so pathetic. A flops saving grace.

    As for Drake, he has the worst album of the yr.

  4. ValleyGirl September 26, 2016

  5. well well September 26, 2016

    shows how irrelevant this is. repeaters? how many bots and loopers did that? or is the album subscribed over a couple of months? those streaming numbers are BS. fake pride. he’s just the first cause he could maybe still be ‘selling’ more when everybody wants to stream now.

  6. tikklzzz September 26, 2016

  7. LOL September 26, 2016

      Kii!

    • HailLegendBeysus September 26, 2016

      And everyone seems to be throwing Feces at Perfect Delusion. How’s it doing on the charts? Has it re-entered the Top 10 of Itunes. Lemonslayed is coming for Artflops sales ???? we see why you’re mad!

  8. Casual-T September 26, 2016

    That’s success right there. Folks need to stop hating on streaming. It doesn’t matter if you post huge sales or huge streaming numbers. Either way, it means somebody likes your music. What about the majority of artists who aren’t racking up sales or streams?

  9. Career Ender September 26, 2016

    girl bye!
    .
    tell me when he sell 2,000,000 copies

  10. Theman September 26, 2016

    • kii September 26, 2016

      How it it free when you have to PAY for an apple music subscription? Don’t be stupid dude

      • Surprise..(DEC 2013) September 26, 2016
