Drake’s Scorpion was released earlier this week and broke Apple Music‘s first day streaming record with over 170 million plays. The double LP features 25 cuts that are half rap songs and half R&B songs, both sides equally chilling.
“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 sold 122 million copies on Apple Music all within 24 hours. It now holds both the U.S. and global streaming records for Apple.
On it’s final track called March 14th (the day drake found out he had a child), he briefly addresses his beef with Pusha T.
