Drake’s ‘Certified Lover Boy’ Breaks Apple Music’s One-Day Streaming Record

Drake’s latest album Certified Lover Boy is Apple Music’s most-streamed album in 24 hours in the services’ history, Apple Music tells Billboard.

The album — which was released at midnight EST on Friday (Sept. 3) and at time of publishing still has a few hours left to accumulate streams for its first day — already broke the record for the most-streamed album in 2021 in under 12 hours on the platform.

Certified Lover Boy is Drake’s sixth studio album, and includes a lengthy list of features from superstar rappers including Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Future, Rick Ross and Lil Baby.

Drake’s 2018 album Scorpion held the record previously on Apple Music, with 170 million streams in its first 24 hours.

The 21-song project has also broken records on Spotify, becoming the most-streamed album in a day on the platform as well, the company confirmed to Billboard earlier Friday.
