J. Cole’s ‘KOD’ Sets Spotify Opening Day Record

J. Cole is already making his mark with KOD. On Friday (Apr. 20), the album’s title track shattered Spotify’s opening day record for streams in the U.S.

According to Chart Data, Cole’s joint earned 4.2 million streams in 24 hours, surpassing Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do.” The latter earned 3.8 million streams on the day it dropped.

Other songs on the list include Kendrick Lamar’s “DNA.” (3.6 million), KOD’s “Photograph” (3.55 million), and The Weeknd’s “Call Out My Name” (3.5 million), according to Chart Data.

“KOD” and “Photograph” are two streaming standouts from J. Cole’s latest album, the follow-up to 2016’s 4 Your Eyez Only. On Friday (Apr. 20), the Fayetteville rapper also released a video for “ATM.”

KOD is projected to top the Billboard 200 in its first week. Cole’s last two albums, 4 Your Eyez Only and 2014’s 2014 Forest Hills Drive, both entered the chart at No. 1 before going platinum.
