It's no secret that Drake is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to streaming.
The Canadian rapper and singer's latest single, God's Plan, broke records on Apple Music and Spotify, racking up the most worldwide plays in a day on both platforms. Unsurprisingly, the track charged to Number 1 on last week's Official Singles Chart and is eyeing a second week at the top.
In the UK alone, Drake has notched up over 2.5 billion plays across all his tracks on streaming services. To put that in perspective, that's more than Ed Sheeran (2.4bn), Rihanna (1.4bn) Bieber (1.3bn), Eminem (1.1bn). Look over Drake's complete UK chart history here.
The Official Charts Company started tracking streams in June 2014. By the end of 2017, The BPI reported that streaming now accounts for over half of music consumption in the UK (50.4%). In December 2017 a landmark 1.5bn audio streams were recorded in a single week.
Since then, Drake's worldwide smash One Dance from 2016 is his most streamed song, with 192 million plays to date. The track, which held the top spot on the Official Singles Chart for 15 weeks, is also UK's second most streamed song of all time, after Ed Sheeran's Shape Of You.
Two more Drake singles have over 100m plays in the UK, both of which are Rihanna collaborations. Work, the lead single from Rihanna's Anti album, currently stands at 104m, while Too Good from Drake's Views album has just passed the 100m mark.
A further four have tallied over 50m streams. 2016's Controlla currently places as Drake's fourth most-played despite peaking at Number 18 in the Official Chart (75m), while Hotline Bling completes the Top 5 (74m) followed by Passionfruit (69m) and Fake Love (65m).
Drake's no stranger to a collaboration, and just over half of his Top 40 most streamed tracks (21) feature other acts, including Majid Jordan on 2013's Hold On We're Going Home (43m) and his Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne collab Truffle Butter. Recorded for Nicki's The Pinkprint album in 2014, the song has 22 million plays in the UK despite missing the Top 100.
