In 2023, he tied Michael Jackson’s record for the most number-one singles (13) by a solo male artist with his hit “First Person Shooter,” featuring J. Cole. He also held the title of the most streamed artist on Spotify globally in 2015, 2016, and 2018, competing with giants like Ed Sheeran, Bad Bunny, and Taylor Swift.
While he ranked third and fourth for most streamed artists on Spotify in 2022 and 2023, respectively, Drake has now surpassed Taylor Swift as the platform’s all-time most streamed artist across all credits.
This incredible feat further cements his legacy as one of the most commercially successful and influential musicians of the 21st century.
