Drake Is The First Artist To Hit 10 Billion Streams On Spotify

Published

on

Despite having a number one hit on the billboard or moving units like it once was, People are still listening to Drake, especially when it comes to streaming.

According to Forbes, the swedish streaming giant Spotify just revealed that thecanadian rapper is the first ever to reach 10 billion streams on their platform.

His popularity isn’t to be questionned, as Drake has been reaching, over the years, a larger audience. Thanks to his latest body of work he released last Year, ‘Views’ has played a major part in the incredible performance he achieved on streaming services.

Already most streamed artist in 2016 with over 4.37 Billion streams, his first No. 1 hit as a lead artist, “One Dance,” which wound up being the most popular cut from the blockbuster record, now has 1.15 billion plays alone, or just over 10% of his e. Back in December, the song became the first to reach the one billion play milestone. Plenty of other songs from Views have impressive play counts, including “Hotline Bling” with just over 600 million, “Too Good” with 520 million and “Controlla” with over 340 million. In fact, Drake racked up well over two billion streams with his last album alone, which hasn’t yet been out for a year.

A large chunk of Drake’s 10 billion streams may come from Views, but he also has a sizable back catalog that continues to be streamed by people all over the world every day. He now can count seven full-lengths of his own, each of which spun off successful singles, and he has been featured on literally hundreds of tracks fronted by other artists. While there are certainly standout smashes among the hundreds of songs featuring Drake’s name, every stream counts, and they add up quickly.

As time passes, Drake’s new music is played even more intensely than his older material, even if some of those songs were more successful when they were first released. New single “Fake Love,” which he released back in December, already has well over 320 million plays, while “Best I Ever Had,” the No. 2-charting song that helped launch him as a star, only has 78 million streams. As more and more people sign on and begin using Spotify (the company just hit 50 million paying subscribers earlier this month), the new hits from the biggest names will continue to collect streams at incredible rates.

It’s only a matter of time before another global superstar hits the 10 billion mark, but by that time, Drake likely will have reached 15 billion, or possibly even 20. These are still early days for Spotify and streaming in general, and the numbers are only going to grow larger and larger.

“Over the past 11 years there were promises made to protect and portray my story, with the authenticity and honesty I gave. I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid. I wrote a letter over 2 months ago asking to be freed from what I believed was excessive and unfair. I explained in personal detail the demise I was experiencing. My cry for help went totally ignored,” she says, blaming the executives at WeTV. “However the demands persisted. It was my spirit, and my soul that was tainted the most.”

Her lengthy message explains all that she went through as a member of the entertainment industry and how it took a toll on her as a person. She concludes by saying that what happened on July 16 was her “attempt to end my pain and my life.”



Continue sending prayers, love, and positivity to Tamar Braxton.

6ix9ine Fears For His Safety During Community Service

Published

on

Though Tekashi 6ix9ine is set to be a free man this weekend when his house arrest period comes to an end, the ramifications of his crime spree and subsequent turn as a stoolie are far from over. In fact, some project that he’ll be looking over his shoulder for the rest of his days, despite putting up a tough front whenever he addresses the public. In any case, his bed has been made — rainbow sheets and all. Case in point, 6ix9ine and his team have recently pointed out a conundrum of sorts, one that appears to be having an impact on his upcoming commitment to community service.



As of now, Tekashi has been assigned 300 hours of community service, with his attorney Lance Lazarro confirming that he has yet to have completed a single hour. With the world seemingly set to be his oyster come Saturday, Lazarro has since voiced concerns that actively engaging in the community service requirements will put his life at risk. A fair notion, considering serving one’s community requires one to be physically present in a given location — though should 6ix9ine intend on doing anything beyond traipsing around his bedroom, he’ll have to step outside eventually.

TMZ reports that Lazarro is requesting that 6ix9ine be able to do his service at a secured facility, providing the example of a hospital or a school. Think witnesses and security — the more the merrier. It’s unclear whether or not 6ix9ine will ever ease up, though it’s unlikely given how antagonistic he continues to behave on social media. Alas, these are the pitfalls of reckless designs.

Donald Trump Wants 2020 Election Delayed

Published

on

Donald Trump has proven that truly anybody can be elected President of the United States. You don’t need to be qualified for the job and still, if you’ve got enough support from the public, you can win.

Arguably the most newsworthy President of our time, Trump appeals to the non-critical thinkers of the world, those who will simply take what he says at face value without actually evaluating how much damage those same statements can cause. Now, he’s seemingly afraid that his position at the White House is in danger after polling numbers have Joe Biden in the lead, so he wants the entire election to be delayed.

Taking to his favorite social media platform, the current President of the United States sent out the following message: “With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???”

This is not the first time he has spoken out against mail-in voting. However, he has not previously asked for the election to be delayed. At this point, things are pretty far along in printing ballots and all other preparations to practice our democratic right in November. 

Do you think the outcome would change should the election be delayed?
