After a huge 2016 with VIEWS, 2017 is shaping up to be another big year for Drake, following the release of More Life.

Following the release of the project over the weekend, it broke Spotify records... two of them.

More Life has set a new record for best first day streams for an album, racking up over 61.3 million streams in its first full day, while Drake himself set the record for best one day streams from an artist, with more than 76.3 million stream in a single day.

The previous record holder for both records was Ed Sheeran, with his new album Divide, which dropped earlier this month.

Additionally, ahead of the release of More Life, Drake became the first act to hit 10 billion streams on Spotify, most of which came from VIEWS and the series of hits it has spawned since its release.
