Drake Earned the Most Apple Music Streams in 2018
Drake’s winning streak continues in 2018. Following news that Drizzy is this year’s Spotify's most-streamed artist of 2018, the rap superstar is also the most-streamed artist on competing music streaming service Apple Music.
On Monday (Dec. 3), Apple released its Best of 2018 list and Drake's celebrated album Scorpion was on top of the Top 100 Global Album chart, while his good-will single "God's Plan" was among the most popular singles on the streaming platform.
In addition, Drake’s songs “Nice for What” and “In My Feelings” as well as his collaborative songs with BlocBoy JB (“Look Alive”), Lil Baby (“Yes Indeed”) and Travis Scott (“Sicko Mode”) all were among the most-streamed tunes on Apple’s Top 100 Global Songs Chart.
Elsewhere, Cardi B’s joint hit with J. Balvin and Bad Bunny "I Like It" was named Song of the Year while Juice Wrld was crowned Breakout Artist for his introspective single, "Lucid Dreams."
Over at Spotify, Drake's "God's Plan" was the most-streamed song of the year with 8.2 billion streams. We must also mention that "In My Feelings" closed out the top five list of most-streamed songs list most likely due to Shiggy's fun-filled viral "In My Feelings" Challenge this past summer. In short, Drake is the streaming king of 2018.
Having conquered 2018, it looks like Drake is plotting big tings in 2019. At the very end of his Aubrey and the Three Migos Tour with Migos, Drizzy's mentor Lil Wayne teased at a joint tour could also happen next year.
"Champagne, what's up, man?" Tunechi said in a video that surfaced last Saturday (Dec. 1). "Congratulations on your tour. You a bad mutherfucker. Much success, much love, much props, much credit, all due, all well deserved. You earned it all bro."
Congratulations to Drake on being the Stream King of 2018!
