Drake breaks Apple Music record with ‘Honestly, Nevermind’

@josephtaysom

Drake has broken an Apple Music record in just one hour following the release of his brand new album, Honestly, Nevermind.

In a new press release issued by the streaming service, Apple said he’d obliterated the record for first-day streams worldwide for a dance album with the new LP. Additionally, they claim Drake holds the records for the biggest album in Apple Music history by first-day streams worldwide, with his 2021 album, Certified Lover Boy.

Meanwhile, they also say the second biggest album by first-day streams worldwide on the platform is Drake’s Scorpion. Furthermore, the rapper holds the record for the biggest song in Apple Music history by first-day streams worldwide courtesy of his Lil Baby collaboration, ‘Girls Want Girls’.

Opinion has been split on his most recent record, which saw a change in direction for the Toronto rapper, who switched up his style by dropping a house album. It was only announced on Instagram mere hours before its unexpected arrival on streaming platforms.

Drizzy has fired back at his critics in a new video which was seemingly filmed at a launch party for the record. 

“It’s all good if you don’t get it yet,” he said. “It’s all good. That’s what we do. That’s what we do, we wait for you to catch up. We’re in here though, we caught up already. On to the next. My goodness!”

After recently signing a deal with Universal Music Group for a reported $400 million, Drake will likely rest easy despite public opinion on the album.
