Doesnt look so good considering he is one of the newer act.


I’d say his numbers are quite good. Drake is the top streaming artist in the world currently and was at 35.6 million in his last update (probably closer to 40 million now), so to have close to half of that is still a lot, especially for an artist that isn’t as popular outside the US.


Lol, since when is 16M EAS through streaming alone not “so good?”


I have to agree with you. Only 4 million total EAS for his DAMN album.

Also, after what he did during his concert, he’s going down.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
