Already securing the record for most single-day album streams, Drake‘s latest Scorpion project is continuing to perform like no album has ever performed.

Shortly after its official release, Spotify announced the double-disc LP is averaging a staggering 10 million streams per hour. The streaming domination has been attributed to the “Scorpion SZN” campaign, which saw Drake become the first artist to take over multiple Spotify playlists on the same day. A joint promotion in collaboration with Republic, Cash Money, and Young Money, the Canadian artist’s picture was plastered on the cover of popular playlists RapCaviar, Beast Mode, Today’s Top Hits, Morning Commute and more which did not even feature any of his music. If that wasn’t enough, Scorpion has also pushed Drake to become RIAA’s highest certified digital singles artist with 142 million digital singles to date.

Catch Spotify and RIAA’s announcement for Drake’s impressive achievements below.
