Drake Breaks The Record For Most First Week Album Streams on Spotify
Over the weekend, Drake surprised everyone with a new project titled If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late. Although the project has been well received by the audience and fans, it is really just a mixtape to hold you over until 'Views From The 6' drops later this year.
If the release of his unannounced mixtape wasn’t surprising enough, it turns out that Drake’s new mixtape also surprisingly just set Spotify records. The music streaming service said Tuesday that the rapper's new album, If You're Reading This It's Too Late, set the record for most streams from an album in its debut week in the U.S. The album, released Friday, was streamed more than 17.3 million times in three days.
