Drake smashes single-day Apple Music and Spotify information (as soon as extra)
There’s a not-so-secret trigger as to why Drake is performing so properly, though: every Apple and Spotify bent over backwards to promote Scorpion. Apple Music featured him prominently, added Siri responses to Drake-related questions (similar to “what’s Drake’s nickname?”) and created a make-your-own-cover-art web page. Spotify, within the meantime, went even extra by inserting into fairly just a few playlists, along with sudden ones like Afternoon Acoustic and Ambient Chill. Once you used Spotify on the weekend of June 29th, you almost undoubtedly seen some reference to Toronto’s best-known rap export.
Not that this thirst comes as plenty of a shock. Drake was instrumental to Apple Music’s early success, due in no small half to his one-week Views distinctive. And Spotify? This represents its likelihood to make up for Views, to not level out proceed undercutting Apple’s metropolis music approach. In every circumstances, Drake’s launch is a bellwether. Apple and Spotify have to current that their corporations are dictating the musical panorama, and the relentless promotion of a hotly-anticipated album like Scorpion would possibly merely accomplish that feat.
