It seems Drake’s only competition is himself—at least, when it comes to streaming numbers.

Just hours after Drizzy unleashed Certified Lover Boy, Spotify announced the project had become the service’s most-streamed album in a single day. A representative for the platform confirmed to Complex it is an all-time, global record, which was previously held by Drake’s Scorpion—the 2018 effort that garnered about 132 million single-day streams.

CLB spanned 21 tracks and included guest appearances by everyone from Jay-Z and Young Thug to Lil Wayne and Kid Cudi to Yebba and Future. Drake dedicated the project to late models Nadia Ntuli and Mercedes Morr. The former reportedly died in a car accident earlier this year, and the latter was killed less than a week ago in what was believed to be a murder-suicide.

“A combination of toxic masculinity and acceptance of truth which is inevitably heartbreaking,” Drake wrote on Instagram. “Executive produced by me, Noah 40’ Shebib, Oliver El-Khatib, and Noel Cadastre. Dedicated to Nadia Ntuli and Mercedes Morr. RIP — Drake.”

Moreover, Drake has set a new record on Apple Music for biggest album debut ever, surpassing the record he set with ‘Scorpion’ in 2018.
