Drake's 'Certified Lover Boy' Breaks Apple Music 2021 Record for Most-Streamed Album in a Day

  /  09.03.2021

Drake is a certified record-breaker.

Less than 12 hours after its release, Drake’s sixth studio album Certified Lover Boy has already broke Apple Music’s 2021 record for most-streamed album in a single day. Additionally, Drake is the most-streamed artist on Apple Music in 24 hours this year.

The 21-track album, which Drake described as “a combination of toxic masculinity and acceptance of truth which is inevitably heartbreaking,” was released around 1 a.m. EST on Friday (Sept. 3) featuring appearances from JAY-Z, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Travis Scott, Future, Lil Baby, Young Thug, Lil Durk, 21 Savage, and more.

CLB bests the previous record set just days ago by Kanye West’s DONDA, which was the most-streamed album and artist in a day on Apple Music. It reached No. 1 on Apple Music’s Top Albums chart in 152 countries in 24 hours.

In its first full day of release, DONDA was streamed more than 60 million times in the U.S. and was the third-most-played album on its first day of release on Apple Music ever.

Drake could surpass his last album, 2018’s Scorpion, which broke Apple Music’s single-day global record with 170 million streams. He also shattered Spotify’s one-day global record with over 132 million streams.
