The Weeknd has been breaking huge records ever since he initially started his career in the music industry.  Now, he has taken his career to another new level by breaking the single day streaming record on Spotify.

It all started with the debut of his latest album, Starboy, on Black Friday last week.  As soon as the album dropped fans went crazy!!  In one day Abel copped the most streams of any other artist on Spotify’s streaming platform.

Spotify hasn’t released the official number of streams that pushed The Weeknd over to the top spot yet.  However, the 18 track project has been placed in Spotify’s Global Top 50 Chart.  The album features some huge hip-hop names, Kendrick Lamar and Future, which I’m sure added even more to The Weeknd’s streaming record.  

Add to the streaming success and listen to the full album below.

For more hip-hop updates stay tuned in to DJ Felli Fel every afternoon from 3p-7p.
