Drake’s 25-track Scorpion album was streamed more than 170m times worldwide on Apple Music on June 29th, Apple has confirmed.

The previous biggest global debut on Apple Music was another Drake project – mixtape More Life, released in March last year – which was streamed 89.9m times worldwide in its opening 24 hours on the platform.

Scorpion’s 170m+ day-one number is not far off double this 89.9m figure.

Scorpion was streamed on Spotify approximately 132m times – nearly 40m behind the 170m stat confirmed by Apple.
