Drake has broken yet another Spotify record. Just over a year after being named the streaming service’s most-played artist ever, his surprise new single “God’s Plan” has now tallied the most plays in a single day – a cool 4,326,679 listens in a span of 24 hours.
“God’s Plan” was released over the weekend along with “Diplomatic Immunity” as part of a project called Scary Hours. No word yet on whether these songs will appear elsewhere or if a full-length is in the works – but surely the wait won’t be much longer, no matter what happens.
Revisit “God’s Plan” and “Diplomatic Immunity” below.
