The release of Drake's fifth studio album, Scorpion, was preceded by intense drama about his beef with Pusha-T. He chose not to continue the feud, but, with his album release, he does have a reason to celebrate.
The Faderreports that, with the release of Scorpion, Drake has become the Recording Industry Association of America's top certified singles artist ever. He has a total of 142 million certified units, a number that is sure to increase as fans listen to the album more in coming days.
Within a few hours of its release, his album, which is already eligible for a double platinum certification, was being streamed 10 million times per hour. Drake was also Spotify's most streamed artist in 2016.
