Drake Shatters Spotify Records with "Search & Rescue"! Proving his unstoppable reign, Drake has officially surpassed 80 billion streams on Spotify, making him the most streamed rapper worldwide. The massive success of "Search And Rescue," reaching a staggering 100 million streams, further solidifies Drake's dominance on the streaming platform.
With a trail of broken records behind him, Drake continues his unrivaled success on streaming platforms, including Spotify. Recently, the rap icon achieved a monumental feat by becoming the most streamed rapper worldwide. Thanks to the massive popularity of "Search And Rescue," amassing over 100 million streams on Spotify, Drake has now exceeded a staggering 80 billion plays across his entire discography on the platform, according to ChartData.
Drake's undeniable influence on Spotify has garnered significant attention over the years. In 2021, Spotify crowned him as the most-streamed artist in the United States, with an astonishing 8.6 billion on-demand streams. To put things into perspective, one out of every 131 streams that year belonged to a Drake song. It's evident that Drake's reign on Spotify remains unchallenged, and his dominance shows no signs of slowing down. Fans eagerly anticipate the release of Scary Hours 3, as Drake recently dropped the highly anticipated track "At The Gates" featuring Lil Uzi Vert on Sound42.
Continuing his meteoric rise, Drake achieved an additional 5 billion streams on Spotify within a few months. Previously, in January, the rap sensation celebrated a remarkable milestone of 75 billion streams. However, Drake took this opportunity to call for fair compensation for artists, urging streaming services to implement bonuses akin to those given to athletes, as a way to motivate future artists to remain consistent and competitive. In a playful note, Drake humorously requested a "LeBron-sized cheque" and assured he has enough dinner plates. While Spotify has yet to respond, the discussion surrounding artist compensation remains an important topic to consider.
Beyond his incredible Spotify achievement, Drake is gearing up for his first tour in nearly five years. Teaming up with 21 Savage, the dynamic duo will embark on the highly anticipated It's All A Blur tour across North America. Kicking off on June 29th at Memphis' FedExForum and culminating at Toronto's Scotiabank Arena on October 7th, this tour promises to be a monumental experience. Fans eagerly await more music from Drake leading up to the tour, and the anticipation continues to grow. Stay tuned for all the latest updates on our website!
