Ed Sheeran Keeps Crushing Records With Best First Week For A Song

This post was originally published on this site

In its first seven days of public availability, Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You” amassed over 52 million plays (exactly 52,359,013 from Spotify), securing the song as having both the best first week, and one week total, ever.

The tropically influenced track beats out the previous record holders like Adele’s “Hello” at approximately 47 million plays in its first week, and Drake’s “One Dance” at 48 million plays for the best one week total. Not to mention, Sheeran absolutely shattered the U.K. one-week record, nearly doubling the previous record-holder, and he also knocked out One Direction for the record for best first day of streams.

Drake Has Officially Dominated 2016 With Quadruple Platinum Status & More

This post was originally published on this site

Without question, 2016 is the year of Drake. His fourth studio album, Views, has officially gone quadruple platinum, selling over four million units under RIAA’s new policy which includes streamed plays. Let’s hope they spelled everything right on the plaque…

But that’s far from all the honors flooding the Canadian artist; Drake received a record 13 nominations at the American Music Awards, winning four of those categories, and he’s also received eight Grammy nominations, not to mention his opening spot at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Oh, and as if that wasn’t enough, Drake has now topped all three of Apple’s year-end charts for Top Album, Top Song, and Best Of Beats 1 Playlist. Seriously, I’ll have what he’s having.

Flume And Sia Are Hot Commodities Right Now

This post was originally published on this site

Flume has been all over the place recently. The man released his sophomore album, Skin, and a follow up companion EP, plus won 8 awards at the ARIAs this year… talk about success. The accomplishments don’t stop there, though. Flume has now become the most streamed Australian artist in Australia.

That’s an impressive amount of things to have accomplished by the age of 25. The second-most streamed Australian artist in Australia is, of course, Sia. “Cheap Thrills” is inescapable now-a-days.  The next milestone to conquer for Flume is becoming the most streamed artist in Australia period. That title is held by Drake with 4.7 billion total streams. A large chunk of Drake’s streams comes from “One Dance,” which took the cake as the most streamed song in Australia. However, Flume’s “Never Be Like You,” was a close second. It looks as though 2017 will be an exciting year for Flume.

Spotify Names The New ‘Most-Streamed Track’

This post was originally published on this site

Drake just claimed the throne to Spotify’s most-streamed track, dethroning Major Lazer’s ubiquitous “Lean On” after a hearty reign. And the new king tune in Spotify’s history? None other than Views’ “One Dance.”

Last November, “Lean On” had a comfortable 526 million plays around the world, but “One Dance” has now amassed a whopping 880 million plays, while Drake himself has over eight billion… damn.

However, the news is’t too surprising, as music streaming services more or less called this one back in June.
