Drake Is Still Number 1, His “In My Feelings” is A Streaming Phenom, Made $500K Last Week


Drake is still number 1 with his “Scorpion” album.

But that doesn’t begin to describe the success he’s had this summer.

Last week, Drake made $534,000 just from streaming the number 1 hit “In My Feelings.” He raked in almost another $2 mil total from last week’s streams.

It’s a good thing, too, since his album sales are only 24K. No one wants the CD or the download. They just want to listen.

“In My Feelings” is a phenom, just like “Hotline Bling.” People make their own videos for YouTube. It’s everywhere. “In My Feelings” samples two other rap songs, which means it’s paying off for a lot of people.
