OMG, you guys… considering that it wasn’t that long ago, we’re sure you all remember the impact Taylor Swift made when she dropped the first single, “Look What You Made Me Do,” off her most recent album, Reputation. After being out for just one day, Taylor set the global first day streaming record for Spotify with over 8 million streams of that one song alone.
To be honest, we didn’t know how long it would take for someone else to come around and take the title right out from underneath Tay, but lo and behold, around five months later, it has happened.
A Spotify representative recently confirmed to Pitchfork that Drake did in fact break the record with his new song “God’s Plan,” which was released as one half of a two-song EP called, Scary Hours, on January 19th.
The rep said, QUOTE, “We can confirm ‘God’s Plan’ by Drake now holds the U.S. record as the most streamed track in a single day on Spotify. The song has overtaken previous record holder Taylor Swift with ‘Look What You Made Me Do.’”
But, it seems like Spotify’s first day streaming record may not be the only record Drake broke with his new song. Why? Well, because Apple radio DJ Zane Lowe claimed on Twitter that the rapper also broke Apple Music’s first day streaming record with an unbelievable 14 million streams!
Even though this is obviously a huge feat for Drake, he’s actually no stranger to breaking records. In fact, he held the number one spot on Spotify’s most-streamed artist chart for two consecutive years, in 2015 and 2016. And in 2016, he set the record for the platform’s most streamed song EVER with “One Dance.”
