Drake Wasn’t Too Happy When “KOD” Broke His Streaming – J. Cole
J. Cole recently paid a visit to Power 105 to sit down with Angie Martinez in a detailed conversation following the release of the rapper’s fifth studio album KOD.
In a preview of the new interview, the subject matter happens to fall on Drake, You, know, the guy that J. Cole bought copies of his Born Sinner album with all those years ago.
Well, when KOD dropped, the project managed to break a few records, some of which may have encroached on some of the titles held by Champagne Papi on a few streaming platforms, and apparently, Drake, clearly joking, didn’t take the news well and hit Cole’s line about it.
“Yeah he text me and said I hate you,” Cole said in one of the snippets played by Martinez over the air. While Drizzy holds the crown for many things, the record in question may be on the 24-hour streaming record that Cole broke, racking up 36.7 million first-day streams on Spotify and 64.5 million on Apple Music, surpassing Drake’s Views by nearly one million streams on Apple Music.
The KOD outro “1985 (Intro to ‘The Fall Off’)” also broke the first-day streaming record on Spotify previously held by Taylor Swift when its figure of 4.2 million eclipsed her 3.8 million for “Look What You Made Me Do.” Drake’s God’s Plan which arrived via Scary Hours on Janury 20th still hold the record for the most single-day streams on Spotify ever though after earning 4.7 million streams on January 22nd.
