ALL ACCORDING TO "PLAN": DRAKE BREAKS STREAMING RECORDS (AGAIN) (UPDATE)

Remember when Drake broke records for streams on Spotify? And how he dominated the streamery the year before that? Well, he's done it again. According to Chart Data, one of Drizzy's two new singles, "God's Plan" (YMCMB/Republic) has broken the record for streams in a single day (on 1/22):

On 1/24, Apple Music's Zane Lowe tweeted that "God's Plan" had smashed the service's global first-day record as well, with 14m+ streams.

You will not be shocked to learn that "God's Plan" and companion track "Diplomatic Immunity" are the top two tracks at Spotify U.S. and Apple Music.

Having busted out the old abacus, we foresee somewhere in the neighborhood of 70m first-week streams for "God's Plan," which would be the biggest debut week for a streamed song yet. Sources inside the building inform us that this is exceptionally dope, and also fire.
