Drake’s ‘Views’ hit 1 Billion Streams

2016 has been a great year for Drake so far. On Monday Dec. 5, the RIAA announced that the Rapper’s fourth studio album, Views, has been officially been certified quadruple platinum. The honor marks 4 million units sold with 100 streams counting as one certifiable unit according to Billboard.

Views is Drake’s second album to hit the quadruple platinum milestone, following his 2011 sophomore release Take Care. The album was released April 29 and was certified double platinum June 9 and triple platinum on Aug. 3.

In September, Apple Music announced Views was the streaming service’s first ever album to hit 1 billion streams. Last month, the album hit 3 billion streams on Spotify and last week topped its year-end lists as the most streamed artist in the United States and internationally.

Add it gets better, Drake’s “One Dance” has been the first song on Spotify to reach one billion streams, according to a report from Billboard on Friday. Earlier this year, “One Dance” passed Major Lazer’s “Lean On” for the most total streams ever on Spotify.

Although The Weeknd may have passed Drake’s record of most monthly streams with Starboy, Drake still holds the title of being the most streamed artist on Spotify ever with over eight billion streams according to thefader.com.
