Drake's new CD 'More Life' breaks a new streaming record
The 30-year-old rapper launched his 22-song collection on March 18 and within a week, No Life sold 505,000 equivalent album units.
Billboard revealed that their top 200 chart features the most popular albums of the week in the United States alone.
More Life's is also a sign of music streaming's maturation.
Drake has broken his own chart record in America by landing 24 titles on the Billboard Hot 100 in the same week. Drake has been slowly incorporating dancehall into his music more, starting with "Controlla" and "One Dance" off the Views album.
Drake's reign continues, as More Life helps the rapper break more records.
Drake is reported to have celebrated the success of his More Life release by buying himself as 40,000-square-foot mansion in Toronto.
However, More Life feels surprisingly less commercial and more interesting than his previous album, Views, which isn't saying much.
Congratulations to Drake on breaking his own streaming record and having the No. 1 album in the country.
