With all of the hubbub over Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN., it’d be understandable if music listeners may have eschewed Drake‘s own album More Life. However, they would be remiss for outright ignoring the album’s success.
According to Billboard and Nielsen Music the chart-topping, record-breaking
playlist album has now surpassed one billion streams, since its release on March 18th. Combined, the 22 tracks have now generated more than 1.07 billion streams in the U.S. alone.
The album garnered 167 million streams in its third week, equating to 136,000 album sales, which topped the Billboard 200. That marks Drake’s second billion-streamer, as his 2016 album VIEWS has been streamed over three billion times, making it the most streamed album of all time.
