Drake previously held the record for most monthly streams among rappers, thanks in part to his latest album Certified Lover Boy, which became Spotify’s most-streamed album in a single day when it was released on Sept. 3.
In January, Drake was the first artist in history to surpass 50 billion streams across all his credited songs on Spotify. He was also named the most-streamed artist of the 2010s with 40 top 10 hits, seven of which reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
