Drake Breaks Streaming Record With More Life
March 27, 2017
Drake has set a new streaming record following the release of his More Life playlist. Billboard reports that More Life’s 257,000 units were driven by streaming equivalent album units, equating to 384.8 million streams of songs from the 22-track album during the tracking frame (each unit equals 1,500 streams of songs from the album). In doing so, More Life beat the previous record holder, Drake’s own Views, which launched with 163,000 streaming equivalent units (245.1 million song streams). More Life also landed at #1 on the Billboard 200 by moving 505,000 equivalent album units in the week ending March 23, marking the biggest week for any album since Views launched with 1.04 million units on in May 2016.
