The release of the 25-track, double disc music compilation has caught the attention on many stans and for those swing fans there’s also the second and third listening sessions since the release making it the biggest one day release on Apple Music with 170 million streams in its first 24 hours and 10 Million times per hour according to Spotify.
With a a very limited amount of features, Drake managed to get a Michael Jackson sample clearance and a verse from Jay Z for his latest release. While no mention of past beef much of the album is typical jam packed with subs and relationship advice. The previous project More Life, from the T.Dot music artist held the previous record with 89.9 million streams in its first day, allowing Scorpion to move up a notch currently holding both the US and global streaming records for the service. Spotify has also released details about the ‘Scorpion’ debut at 132 million streams in its first 24 hours making it largest single-day streaming total for any album on any streaming service to date.
