Last week, Apple Music announced that Drake’s 2016 ‘Views’ album became the first album to achieve over one billion streams on the platform.
Though the album came out 6 months ago, Views is still making waves as just last month it was certified triple platinum by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association Of America) for selling three million copies worldwide.

To celebrate this new accomplishment, Apple Music awarded the Toronto native a plaque which he posed with in a photo he uploaded on instagram earlier today September 26.
The first photo had the caption “Thank you to everyone. OVO Sound to the world @applemusic” and the second one had a simple caption, just “B’s”
The album sold over 600,000 copies on its first day out and was number 1 for weeks.
