More Life’s streaming figures have beaten the previous record holder of Drake’s Views.
Drake has scored his seventh no. 1 album for More Life and broken his own streaming record.
The album, which came out on March 18, notched up 505,000 equivalent album units in the week ending March 23. As Billboard reports, this the biggest week for any album since Drake’s own Views took in 1.04 million units last May.
The Canadian artist has also more than doubled his own streaming record, taking in 257,000 streaming equivalent album units with More Life, compared to Views’ 163,000 units.
Last week, an Apple Music representative confirmed that the “playlist” was streamed 89.9 million times in its first 24 hours on Apple Music, breaking the single-day album streams record for every music service and surpassing Spotify’s 61.3 million streams.
Drake’s seven no. 1 albums ties him with Kanye West and Eminem for the second-most among hip-hop artists.
