This is Drake taking a victory lap for his city, he proudly reps Toronto and gives us all the experience of living there through the music he produced.
More Life – $3,677,355 (4,675,837,485 streams)
Drake’s “compilation” project that was loosely styled as a playlist made Drizzy a light $3M+, he paved the way for casual collections of music that aren’t necessarily a part of a cohesive project.
Scorpion – $5,703,636 (7,251,840,939 streams)
Drake’s 5th studio album and a project that contained 25 deep cuts from the Toronto artist.
Care Package – $270,590 (344,958,473 streams)
Drake blessed us with this package of tracks that were meant to just get us through the drought of music from the artist. Drizzy looked out for his fans and put all of his cuts on streaming services that previously were not.
Dark Lane Demo Tapes – $1,229,455 (1,563,826,003 streams)
DLDT consisted of leaks that were almost meticulously released to the public in an almost strategic fashion. Fans were surprised to see this release and this delivered in a very similar sense to that of ‘Care Package.’
Overall Drake has done well for himself bringing in over $20M in income from just Spotify alone. This is not including his brand endorsements, Apple Music payouts, YouTube streams, and a whole other number of avenues of income the Toronto artist has.
