XXXTentacion Surpasses Drake
Written by 1.02010 on February 21, 2022
XXXTentacion now has the most streamed hip-hop album on Spotify, surpassing Drake.
What he did not achieve when he was alive, he did in death. The late rapper XXXTentacion now holds the honor of having the most-streamed hip-hop album in Spotify history, removing Drake, who sat comfortably on top of the hip-hop streaming throne for several years. The two rappers had an ongoing rivalry while the “Look At Me” entertainer was alive, and now Jahseh Onfroy, better known as XXXTentacion, has won the Spotify battle, at least for now.
Statistics released by Chart Data show that up to November 2021, Drake’s “Scorpion” was the most-streamed hip-hop album, leading XXXtentacion’s album “?” by close to one billion streams. However, the album has now reached 7.884 billion plays on Spotify, with Drake sitting at 7.883, making the “Sad” artiste the current one to beat.
This new hip-hop feat is indeed impressive, especially considering that Onfroy died three and a half years ago. However, it is still a long way from attaining the overall all-genre record on Spotify, which belongs to British singer Ed Sheeran. The “Shape of You” artiste is very comfortable in the number one position with his “÷” album that has already been streamed an incredible 11.5 billion times.
