For over a decade, Drake has solidified his position as one of the most streamed artists globally, consistently dominating the Billboard 200 with his albums. In 2023, he equaled Michael Jackson’s record for the most No. 1 songs (13) by a solo male artist when his single ‘First Person Shooter’ featuring J Cole topped the charts.

In 2015, 2016, and 2018, the “God’s Plan” singer held the title of the most streamed artist on Spotify worldwide, alongside other streaming heavyweights like The Weeknd, Ed Sheeran, Bad Bunny, and Taylor Swift. Drake in 2022 ranked as the third most streamed artist on Spotify, coming in fourth position in 2023. With over 84 million monthly listeners globally, he has now surpassed Taylor Swift as the most streamed artist across all credits.

This achievement comes as no surprise, given Drake’s consistent appearances as the most exported and listened-to international artist, as indicated by Spotify Wrapped statistics, including in Africa and Uganda.

This success is attributed to Drake’s smooth, emotive, and catchy hooks, coupled with his regular release schedule, averaging almost an album every two years, and numerous collaborative efforts.

From his joint album “Her Loss” with 21 Savage to LPs like “For All The Dogs” (2023) and 2022’s “Honestly, Nevermind,” and “Certified Lover Boy” in 2021, which featured groundbreaking hits like ‘Fountains’ with Tems and ‘Girls Want Girls’ featuring Lil Baby, Drake’s discography is packed with memorable tracks. His collaborations with rapper Future have also been notable, producing hits like ‘Life is Good,’ ‘Wait 4 U,’ and ‘Where Ya At,’ showcasing his versatility and enduring appeal in the music industry.
