Is Drake the King of Streams?

DRAKE’S STREAMS IN 2021 WAS MORE THAN ALL SONGS RELEASED BEFORE 1980
Billboard proved that Drake has been the king of streams not only in 2021 but he has outperformed entire decades of music.
The data showed that Drake “generated more U.S. on-demand streams in 2021 than all pre-1980 records combined. The entertainment analytics company Luminate, formerly MRC Data, compiled the release and Billboard reviewed the 988.154 billion U.S. streams from 2021 and provided a decade-by-decade breakdown to highlight how older albums from new artists are becoming increasingly en vogue in regard to streaming metrics.”
Drake alone was responsible for 0.8 percent of total streams in 2021, which is a huge accomplishment. That proves that Drake has consistently been a force to compete with.
