The self proclaimed “6-God” himself can add another title to his endless number of accomplishments. Drake won a Grammy for best rap song of the year for 2018’s  anthem “God’s Plan.” According to Hypebeast, Drake became the first artist to pass 50 billion global streams. In 2018, he is reported to reach the most Billboard Hot 100 top 10’s. The single “In My Feelings” was a huge part of the success due to the viral explosion of the dance that took over social media.

According to IFPI.org his album “Scorpion” broke multiple global records in its first week of being released. Apple music crowned Drake as well, saying the “Scorpion” album reached number one in 92 countries. Before the release of the album, single  “God’s Plan” shattered the first day streaming records on Spotify and Apple Music with over 14 million streams.
