Scorpion arrives at No. 1 on the strength of a record 1 billion total streams in a week. It is the largest sales week for an album thus far in 2018. It is also the largest sales week since Taylor Swift’s Reputation earned 1.24 million units in its first week last December. On top of that, it’s the biggest week for a rap or R&B album in over two years, following Drake’s own Views, which earned 1.04 million units in its first week in May 2016.
The album also earned platinum certification on its first day of release thanks to the success of pre-release singles “God’s Plan” and “Nice For What.” The tracks earned back-to-back No. 1 debuts earlier this year.
A week after the album’s release, Drake shared a new verse in a “Behind Barz” segment. Listen here.
