Drakes Scorpion shatters global records with one billion streams

Singer Drake speaks to the crowd prior to the Floyd Mayweather Jr. v Conor Mc Gregor World Press Tour at Budweiser Stage

It racked up 745.92 million US online plays in its first week, the highest streaming debut for any artist ever.

That toppled The Beatles record of five singles set in 1964. Billboard notes the band remains "the only act to monopolize the Hot 100's entire top five in a week". The seven top-charting Scorpion songs are "Nice For What, ' which returns for its eighth week at No. 1, "Nonstop, ' debuting at No. 2, 'God's Plan" jumping to No. 4 from No. 9, 'In My Feelings, ' debuting at No. 6, a new peak of No. 7 for 'I'm Upset;' 'Emotionless, ' debuting at No. 8 and 'Don't Matter To Me, ' featuring Michael Jackson, which enters at No. 9".

Drake's record company, Republic Records, said the 31-year-old musician, who was the biggest seller in 2016, was the first artist to reach one billion plus streams globally across all platforms in one week of release.

"Yesterday" a longstanding record from The Beatles felt the sting of a "Scorpion".

The Billboard 200 album chart tallies units from album sales, song sales (10 songs equal one album) and streaming activity (1,500 streams equal one album). Shortly after the changes, the number of tracks on marquee pop releases began to grow: the more opportunities you give your fans to stream or download individual songs, the higher your chances of landing something on the charts.

Despite this chart success, the number one single this week on both the New Zealand Top40 and the Billboard Hot 100 is now held by Cardi B, with her feature on Maroon 5's Girls Like You and her single I Like It. J. Cole didn't jump on the long-album trend, but Migos and Post Malone did: Culture II has 24 tracks and Beerbongs & Bentleys has 18. But they also weren't working at a time when every snippet of music they released had a decent shot at the singles chart, whether or not it was actually a single.

Looking at the entirety of the list, Drake brings 27 songs onto the July 14-Hot 100.
