In a remarkable turn of events, Drake and 21 Savage have managed to dethrone JAY-Z and Kanye West from their long-held position as the creators of the most-streamed collaborative rap album on Spotify.
Their joint effort, “Her Loss,” which was released just over a year ago, has now amassed an impressive 2.7 billion streams on the popular platform, surpassing the previous record set by JAY-Z and Kanye West’s “Watch The Throne” at 2.6 billion streams.
Despite receiving mixed reviews upon its initial release, “Her Loss” proved to be a commercial triumph for the Toronto and Atlanta natives. Within the first week of sales, the album moved over 400,000 units, establishing its popularity among music enthusiasts.
The streaming success of “Her Loss” has been nothing short of phenomenal. Achieving 2.7 billion streams on Spotify within a year is a testament to the widespread appeal and staying power of Drake and 21 Savage’s collaborative efforts.
