OVO Sound boss Drake is back on his music grind and the numbers aren’t lying. New reports claim the 6 God’s Scorpion album is racking up millions of hourly streams.
According to a new report, Drizzy’s latest solo effort is doing monster streams since its Friday release.
Will it be the first album ever to blaze past 1 billion streams U.S. in its first week? And if he can do that here, what’s possible worldwide? Scorpion is averaging 10m streams per hour at Spotify, and its tracks occupy the Top 25 slots at Apple Music. It’s already flown past the 100m streams mark. (HITS Daily Double)
On the new album, Drake hints at his contractual obligation with Cash Money possibly ending.
Birdman was quoted in 2015 telling Angie Martinez that Drake and Nicki Minaj would remain with Cash Money even if Lil Wayne parted ways with the label, but at this point it seems like the Toronto rapper has found a way out. While the exact details aren’t known, the last song on the A-side of Scorpion (“Is There More”) is perfectly clear with the lyrics “Soon as this album drop I’m out of the deal”. (SOHH)
This week, Drake’s dad Dennis Graham hyped up the Scorpion performance numbers.
The new album almost immediately racked up a grip of hip-hop co-signs.
