“A new era. ?? 10 billion streams on Apple Music. Congratulations, @Drake.”
This new milestone for the musician occurred despite his setback following restrictions of the distribution of his latest album Scorpion from record stores.
Bear in mind that Drake (with seven nominations), was among the nominees for the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards (VMA), which were announced on Monday, July 16.
Meanwhile, his song “In My Feelings” is now number 1 in the UK. This feat makes it the fifth time his song will take the number one spot.
