The Toronto rapper is the first artist to surpass 50 billion streams across all global streaming platforms, according to a press release from his label Republic Records.

Drake broke the streaming record thanks to his latest album Scorpion, which tops the Billboard 200 for a fifth consecutive week. Additionally, his single “In My Feelings” is No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for a fourth straight week, bringing his total Hot 100 run to 23 weeks in 2018.
