Drake’s ‘Views’ Tops 1 Billion Streams

Views hits a billi.

The milestones keep coming for Drake. Young Money/Cash Money/Republic Records has announced that songs from Drizzy’s latest album have been streamed over 1 billion times in the U.S. in the three weeks since its April 29 release.

It’s another big win for the Toronto MC in what’s already been a huge year. Currently, Views is the No. 1 album on the Billboard 200, where it’s been holding steady for five straight weeks. That’s not all, though. The 6 God’s Wizkid and Kyla-assisted single “One Dance” also has the No. 1 spot on the Hot 100.

But the 6 God is not stopping. In the past week alone, he dropped three new tracks: DJ Khaled’s “For Free,” the Gucci Mane-assisted “Back on Road,” and his Bad Boy-inspired solo cut, “4PM in Calabasas.”

Now, Drizzy is ready to hit the road on the “Summer Sixteen Tour” with his What a Time to Be Alive partner-in-rhyme Future. That jaunt is slated to start July 20 in Austin before closing down on October 15 in Newark.
