Drake says his label should write a LeBron-sized check for his historic streaming record on Spotify.
The streaming service recently announced that Drake has earned the honorary title of being the first artist in Spotify history to surpass 75 billion streams. As one of the most popular artists in the United States and the world, Drake has a long and unrivaled track record. His undefeated streak runs until 2023, and the artist has won multiple awards, but it seems like the title means nothing to Drake, given his amusing reaction to the news.
“We should get paid like athletes to motivate future artists to be consistent and competitive,” the “Her Loss” rapper said.
Drake, who has undoubtedly won hundreds of medals, communicated to Spotify that he prefers checks.
“Please feel free to send me a LeBron-sized check, I have enough dinner plates,” the rapper said with a laughing emoji while tagging Spotify.
Over the past decade, Drake has been a source of inspiration as his work ethic and music speak for themselves.
On Thursday night (February 2), the rapper shared a series of photos from his recent Apollo Theater performance on his Instagram account, showing him in the studio, setting up the stage and working late .
He also shared a motivational message for fans, as he pointed out that persistence and lack of complacency set him apart.
“Introduced myself to consistency and we fell in love. We’ve been stuck and couldn’t get enough of it ever since
@thisratio Seeing the going rate of people they rate is not luck. It’s easy to see that your hard work is not working hard enough because look at @them and look at us,” he said.
He added, “I’m just an observer who’s had enough. My mouth has become like the door I opened for you and I should close it. Wish I could explain to these tough guys what’s going on in person. Basic Up, I let them keep dreaming and believing until I decide to wake them up.”
Drake’s musical legacy is still questioned by some who question his music, but many others agree that the rapper’s talent and hard work have kept him in his enviable position as the most popular rapper in the world and one of the top 5 most followed artists in the world.
