Drake's "Scorpion" Breaks All-Time 1st Day Streaming Record

With over 170 million streams, Drake’s Scorpion just broke his own Apple Music all-time record for the most streams in a single day. The 6 God’s More Life playlist previously held the record with 89.9 million streams in its first day.

But according to Apple Music, the album also set a new record for the most single-day stream on all streaming services.

“Drake’s Scorpion has broken the all time first day streaming record with more than 170 million streams on Apple Music,” Apple relayed to HipHopDX via email. “That is also the most streams in a single day on any service, ever.”

Scorpion was released on Friday (June 29) and sold 122 million copies on Apple Music within 24 hours. It now holds both the U.S. and global streaming records for Apple. The service heavily promoted the album and even launched a site allowing users to create their own Scorpion cover art.

Scorpion also crushed Spotify’s single-day global record for album streams as well.

According to data on SpotifyCharts.com, the album pulled in 132,450,203 streams, over 50,000,000 more than Post Malone’s Beerbongs & Bentleys, which previously held the record with 78,744,748 streams globally on its first day of release.
