Drake's 'Scorpion' Has Broken the One-Week U.S. Streaming Record in Just Three Days

Another week, another streaming record broken by Drake. 'Scorpion' will undoubtedly hit the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200, at least judging by these early figures.

Another week, another streaming record broken by Drake. As reported by both Billboard and Chart Data, Drizzy's new album Scorpion has already broken the record for the most U.S. streams in a single week, and did so in only three days. Since its release on Friday, the record has amassed 435 million on-demand streams, and that doesn't even include today (Monday, July 2).

The previous record holder was Post Malone with his album Beerbongs & Bentleys, which earned 431.3 million streams in the week ending May 3. Scorpion, however, is currently projected to finish its first week with 725-775k album equivalent units, with Billboard stating Scorpion is forecasted to receive over 700 million streams in the U.S. by the end of the tracking week on July 5.

Unsurprisingly, Scorpion is looking to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The latest full-length from Drake is looking like it'll give him the best opening week for an album in 2018, which means it'll also be his eighth No. 1 release in a row. All seven of his full-length release to date have debuted at the No. 1 spot, and Scorpion will almost certainly keep that tradition.
